Mr Anthony Joshua’s rise has been nothing short of remarkable. In 2010, he won the senior ABA Championships, making him the best boxer in England just two years after his first amateur fight. Two years later, he was Olympic champion. Currently, his professional record shows 19 fights, all won by knockout, and he is seen by many as the best heavyweight fighter on the planet. Needless to say, he knows a thing or two about hard work. As he prepares for his next fight against Mr Kubrat Pulev next month, we asked Mr Joshua for an insight into his working day, and what it takes to achieve greatness.

I usually wake up at 7.00am. Some fighters get up at 5.00am, which is all good but sometimes I don’t leave the gym until late at night so I need rest. I’m training hard so I need rest to attack the day properly.

If I’m training, I won’t eat anything too heavy in the morning. But porridge is good for energy. Eggs, salmon, some asparagus, and fruit are always good, too.
