‘If AJ Packs It, We’re All Broken’

DEREK CHISORA has called on the entire UK to get behind Anthony Joshua to save British boxing from the doldrums.

The 37-year-old slugger has been a mentor to AJ, 32, since their days at Finchley ABC together and Chisora tried to advise his patron on the best way to face Oleksandr Usyk in September.

The veteran nicknamed War gave Southpaw some tough early rounds before a decisive defeat, 11 months before his mate lost WBA, IBF and WBO titles to the Ukrainian in a punishing night in Tottenham.

But he hopes the London 2012 legend will return – with a new training regimen and coach expected to be confirmed in the new year – to reclaim his titles.

Before the rematch on Saturday night with Joseph Parker, Del Boy said: “AJ has a rematch and he’s going to win, we’re not looking at anything other than that.

“If AJ Retired today, he packs up and goes, boxing is f*****. Boxing journalists, magazines, YouTube channels are all f***** – even I am f*****. Eddie especially f*****.

“AJ has lifted the sport, changed everything and made us all pay more, so we need to support him to win.

“When AJ and Tyson Fury Retirement all that you guys will write about? So while he’s in the game, we all need to follow him.

“Seven years ago everyone was fed up with Klitschkos or even Matt Skelton, in the UK it was the bulls***.

“So everyone better enjoy AJ and what he brings to the sport now.”

It seems everyone outside the corner of AJ knows that the 6ft 6in powerhouse must impose itself as the undisputed former heavyweight cruiser king when they clash in North London.

But a questionable game plan and some unfortunate mid-season encouragement from AJ’s assistant coach, culminating in Watford’s win lost to a unanimous decision.

But Chisora ​​insists the golden boy gave in like a man and doesn’t need advice on how to handle failure.

He said: “AJ is dealing with it very well. He knows what he has to do and what has to be changed and he is doing it now.

“He is a man, a grown man and he is dealing with it that way. I don’t need to talk to him.

“I met him right after the game against Usyk and I told him to come back and be better than ever and he will.”
