'Just like me and you' – Anthony Joshua is 'a really normal guy' as prospect Kieran Molloy reveals advice from Brit

ANTHONY JOSHUA is 'a really normal guy' who is always willing to share his advice in the gym.

That is the revelation made by light-middleweight prospect Kieran Molloy, who trains with the former heavyweight champion.

Molloy, 23, told iFL TV: "You learn off his experiences and stuff, he just tells me stuff.

"Look, he's a really normal guy at the end of the day. He's just like me and you, he's pure down to earth.

"He's got massive ambitions still in boxing, the way he's still set himself out, he could just easily go down the road and buy a mansion and just live in there comfortably.

"But he's staying in a hotel Monday to Friday, training twice a day, he really, really wants his belts back.

Joshua, 32, was last beaten in September by Oleksandr Usyk, 35, with the pair expected to rematch this year.

AJ has since left his Sheffield HQ under coach Rob McCracken with Angel Fernandez seemingly elevated to new head trainer.

It means Joshua is in Fernandez's Loughborough gym with Molloy, where he is not shy of giving pointers.

Molloy said: "The stuff we're practising on in training, he's just showing me a few bits like that.

"Just telling me what I should be saying in interviews and stuff like this, he just tries to get me out there and how to market myself.

"He's given me a few really good pointers. His team around him are very good, so they're helping us a hell of a lot."
