Recently, in an interview with BBC, Anthony Joshua spoke about the upcoming Misfits boxing event and explained why he thinks YouTube/Crossover boxing is good for the sport.

“Yeah. Look at this card there is now”. Joshua said, as quoted by dailymail.co.uk. “Imagine if you throw a few more names in the fight industry on the card. It just grows the sport and it could definitely happen”.

Joshua further said: “10 out of 10. I'm telling you, it's good for boxing, You could fight someone that is well-known, credible, who can fight, marketable, without a championship and have that same affect early on in your career and still have the all the rewards. They are showing that there is so much potential in boxing regardless of championships”.
