Anthony Joshua interview at KO Gym
KO, in Bethnal Green, is not Anthony Joshua's gym. The heavyweight Olympian trains much closer to home at Matchroom in Brentwood, but in many ways it seems the old gym where we meet him – with all its weathered, raw appeal – is a perfect fit. It's a no-nonsense gym, for serious fighters; he knows the owner, Bill – a fixture in London's close-knit fighting scene; and, serendipitously, there's even a faded bit of graffiti that reads 'AJ' on a half-crumbled wall outside. But what resonates most is an inscription on the archway just above the entrance, which reads: 'Leave your ego at the door.'
