Anthony Joshua took the microphone and spoke about his victory over America’s Jermaine Franklin. Excerpts:

“No knockout, so no good. It is a brutal sport, but knockouts are everything. I’m not too happy.

“I could have thrown more shots, and I should have, no excuses. But I will.

“That is part of coming back; you have to be your own biggest critic. If you want to progress, you can’t say that was brilliant and chill out.

“Franklin is a decent counter-puncher; the right hand wasn’t landing; that is one of my best shots but we will build.

“Whatever my coach wants to work on, we’ll work on. I don’t want to put pressure on Derrick; everything that happens in the ring is on me. If you want to be a fighter you have to deal with the pressure.”
