College students in Stanmore were left inspired after the team who support world heavyweight boxing champion, Anthony Joshua, held a session on his work ethic and regime.

The world’s best boxer relies heavily on his team to make him the best he can be, and they dropped in on Stanmore College on April 23.

Jonathan Constant, James Mulley, Kevin Ayodele and Dinos Platides told students about all the work the fighter does behind the scenes so they can apply the same discipline in their own lives.

They also described what it’s like supporting the heavyweight boxer from events, promotion and tickets, to signing merchandise, personal training, physiotherapy and support.

The team explained how Joshua lives by the quote “the body achieves what the mind believes”.

The students were also told about the value in staying focussed and knowing what your goal is.

They were also advised to try and find what’s right for them and not to let anyone tell them what they need to do but decide for themselves and then work at it.

Jonathan advised students to wake up early, be active, eat well; nutrition is important and about 80 per cent of success for both mind and body – complex carbs make a difference, and be respectful especially to those who support you.

James Mulley, from Joshua’s support team, said: “It is important to be in competition with yourself and not others – and if you find something you love to do, it’s not a chore.”
