The five weight ex-pound for pound great retired in 2015 with an unbeaten record of 49-0, equalling the record set by the great Rocky Marciano.
But, when asked if he thinks he has what it takes to surpass what Mayweather has done in the sport, Joshua confidently replied “Yeah, you know why?
“Because when someone sets a benchmark, it’s only there to be broken, records are there to be broken.
“So yeah I can say I will go on and surpass the greats because they set the benchmark and it doesn’t mean we have to go under, we have to go above.
“And I’m sure that’s what he’d encourage anyone to do, if he had a young fighter he’d say ‘I want you to be better than me, that’s what you say to your kids.
“I’m going to say yeah I can do better more things than Floyd Mayweather. “
