Don’t settle for less Frank Warren warns Anthony Joshua

first_imgVeteran Boxing promoter Frank Warren has warned Nigeria born British pugilist Anthony Joshua against rushing to accept fresh fight especially one with lower stake only few weeks after re-claiming his titles. The 30 year old Olympic Super-heavyweight Gold medallist he noted stands a better chance of sealing a bigger fight against either Deontay Wilder or Tyson Fury in the near future if he kept his cool while relishing his impressive comeback. Warren who represents the Gypsy King, insists that a fight with either WBC champion Wilder or lineal champion Fury would be easier to make if Joshua did not have the issue of boxing organisations ordering him to fight mandatory challengers ‘If I was Anthony Joshua I wouldn’t fight again until we know the winner of this fight (between Wilder and Fury) Warren told the Telegraph. ‘I’d let them strip me of my titles, and not fight anybody until the big one.’ Warren shared his concerns regarding the possibility of Joshua, the current WBA, WBO and IBF champion, facing Kubrat Pulev, the IBF mandatory challenger, in Spring next year. The 67-year-old advised that the Briton would be better off avoiding the potential banana skin that the Bulgarian poses, and focus on sealing the deal with Wilder or Fury – who are set to step in the ring once again for a highly-anticipated rematch on February 22.

Mourinho unimpressed with Parrott’s cameo in Tottenham’s FA Cup exit

first_img Loading… Jose Mourinho says Troy Parrott has to ‘work a lot’ to improve and feels the Tottenham teenager’s ineffective outing against Norwich shows he was right to leave him out of the side for so long. There were loud cheers from supporters when the 18-year-old came off the bench at the start of extra-time in Wednesday’s FA Cup fifth-round tie, though he struggled to make an impact as the match went to a penalty shootout. The Portuguese coach feels the teenager’s quiet outing justified his doubts The Republic of Ireland youngster bravely stepped up to take Spurs’ fourth penalty, which was saved by Tim Krul, with Gedson Fernandes’ effort also stopped as Tottenham limped out of the competition. While Mourinho defended Parrott over his penalty miss, he was quick to point out that the young striker had not impressed in his cameo appearance and is still not ready for a bigger role in the side despite the clamour from fans to see more of him. Speaking to BBC Sport, Mourinho said of Parrott: ‘The penalty is nothing. He is a penalty taker in the under-23s, he scores every one in the unders. ‘He was so confident, he wanted to take one, he wanted to take the responsibility, it’s an experience in his career. ‘The problem is not his experience. The problem is the 30 minutes. ‘Now people can see that he has to work a lot so don’t think that Parrott is the second Harry Kane because he’s just a young kid that needs to work. ‘Let’s forget the penalty because we all miss the penalties, it was not Troy.’ Mourinho says his attackers are being run into the ground Read Also: Dier confronts fans in the stand as Tottenham crash out of FA Cup Parrott was only involved because Tottenham’s squad has been stretched to breaking point with injuries and Mourinho says the club cannot put out their strongest team against both Burnley at the weekend and RB Leipzig in midweek. He continued: ‘In this moment I have to think about what’s next and I have to speak to my club because I think some of these boys to have a chance to fight Tuesday for a Champions League position they just can’t play on Saturday. ‘Particularly in forward positions, behind we’ve got options but not going forward.’ FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 last_img read more
