Responding to the speculation, Joshua said: ‘You know what’s bad about all these interviews I see? I see interviews that quote what I said, I think to myself, I ain’t done no interviews.
‘Where did this person get this information from? I see people saying “AJ accepts £15m to step aside.” ‘I ain’t signed no contract, I ain’t seen no contract. As it stands, stop listening to the b*****t until it comes from me
‘I’m the man in control of my destiny. I’m the man who handles my business. I’m a smart individual and I make calculated decisions every step of the way. ‘Don’t listen to the b******t from other sources. If I tell you something then you know it’s real.’
