Going for the crown
1 May 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Anthony Joshua is regarded as the future of heavyweight boxing. An Olympic champion, photogenic, feet to the ground and charming.

He has enough of a past as a youth in Watford to give him the 'bad boy done good' image. It also helps he can string a few sentences together.

A film crew followed him for two years right up to the build up of the Wladimir Klitschko fight in April 2017 giving the crew unique access to Joshua, his crew and management team.

What we see is an happy go lucky guy, blessed with skills and hard work. Some of those training sessions looked painful. Twelve weeks of intense training just to get ready for a fight. Joshua even managed to state unconvincingly he enjoyed the training.

The documentary gives a brief run down of Joshua's boxing career so far, his early fights, his IBF world title victory and early defences of that title.

Joshua's nice guy image is cemented by being comfortable in promoting himself and his fights. His easy going manner when he meets other celebrities such as Dwayne Johnson, talking about their kids. Also his refusal to engage in trash talking his opponent such as for the Klitschko fight where both men have mutual respect for each other.

Maybe the documentary had a share of promotional puff about it when it needed to go more in depth.
