Novak Djokovic and his wife, Jelena, underlined the importance of social media, especially that of Facebook and Instagram, in their foundation which fundraised great amounts of money to help Serbian kids get an education.

The Novak Djokovic Foundation, owned by the couple mentioned above, focuses on helping children all around Serbia get access to early childhood education and they have excelled in doing so. “The introduction of social media, especially Facebook and Instagram, has helped us reach global audiences.

We’ve been using Facebook and Instagram as a fantastic tool to fundraise and also to raise the importance of investing in early childhood education”. , said Jelena Djokovic. As an example, on Novak’s 31st birthday, the Wimbledon champion has fundraised enough money to send 400 kids to preschool for one month through a Facebook campaign.

“I think it’s important for athletes to use a platform for goods to give back in any shape or form, you know, showing that regardless of success that you have achieved you are still blessed and you are still conscious of what is happening in your community and around the world”.

, said Djokovic in his Instagram post. Besides sharing personal content, promoting businesses and throwing with likes everywhere, social media has enabled people to give money to charities in an easier way. Novak Djokovic can relate to this.

“Facebook and Instagram have helped me build my own authentic platform that has helped me get closer to the fans and share different content that people don’t usually get to see when they watch me play tennis on the court.

It allowed me also to promote the charity work that we do with our foundation”. , Novak said.

‘I’m done with losing’: Anthony Joshua opens up on his pain after Oleksandr Usyk defeat

Published

on

Anthony Joshua has opened up on his shock loss to Oleksandr Usyk last month that saw him relinquish his heavyweight titles, saying he is “done with f…..g losing” and will exact swift revenge in their rematch next year.

In a wide-ranging interview with iFL TV, the former heavyweight champion also discussed his trainer situation as he looks to win back his IBF, WBA and WBO belts from the Ukrainian at the first time of asking.

Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs) was thoroughly outboxed by Usyk as the unbeaten Ukrainian (19-0, 13 KOs) earned a unanimous points victory at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London to end Joshua’s brief second reign.

Joshua had suffered his first career defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr in June 2019 before winning back his titles in an immediate sequel in Saudi Arabia six months later.

The 32-year-old is confident that he will do the same against Usyk after getting his tactics wrong in their first encounter and hit back at critics who suggested he was too happy to lose.

“Because you don’t hear from me, I may not be effing and blinding on Insta stories and stuff like that, it doesn’t mean that I stomach losses,” Joshua said.

“I was on the next plane to the States, spoke to all my team. We’ve had some awkward conversations in the camp … It hurts bro. It hurts. Especially when you’ve got a winner’s mentality.

“I know from experience and track record, my mindset and my evaluation of losses and how I use them, it can catapult me to the next level.”

When asked why tried to outbox a technical fighter like Usyk rather than using his size and strength advantages to bully the much smaller man, Joshua initially sought to justify his baffling strategy, saying he was trying to conserve energy.

“When I looked at the other fight [Tyson Fury’s KO of Deontay Wilder in their trilogy fight] a couple of weeks later you saw that after two rounds, three rounds, the energy was depleted, Joshua told iFL TV.

“It’s not what I thought was the right way of boxing. So I started working on different elements of my boxing – trying to learn how to slip shots, roll shots a bit better, etcetera.

“MY LIFE IS ON THE LINE” – ANTHONY JOSHUA EXPLAINS SEARCH FOR NEW TRAINER

The deposed champion is preparing for his Oleksandr Usyk rematch

Anthony Joshua has denied splitting with trainer Rob McCracken but says he is looking for additional input ahead of his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk.

Joshua lost to the Ukrainian former cruiserweight in September but immediately exercised his rematch clause which should see the pair face one another for a second time in 2022.

The 31-year-old Briton was well beaten by Usyk in a technical match-up with many believing the former champion was wrong not to use his size and strength advantage.

Since the defeat Joshua has toured gyms in Texas and California, and he told IFL TV what his plans were.

Speaking of retaining McCracken, he said: “Yeah, and he has to speak to the people I may want to work with and see if he can work with them.

“I had the same conversation with Rob, ‘I want to work with you, but I also want to work with this guy for six months’.

“Rob might tell me, ‘You know what champ, this ain’t working for me. For the next six months, you do your thing and come and see me after.’

“It’s mature conversations. My life, my health is on the line.”

Joshua explained who he had seen on his visit.

“I need to go and get some new teachings from guys that have trained – Robert Garcia trained 13, 14 world champions,” he said.

“They’ve got so many generations of teachings.

“Virgil Hunter trained Andre Ward, a phenomenal fighter.

“I wanted to go around and be in an environment of fighters.

“Eddy Reynoso, ‘No boxing, no life.’ I love that saying. Canelo is obviously a phenomenal fighter.

“I watched him spar 12 rounds, asked certain questions.

“Ronnie Shields, another African American coach who has worked with the greats.”
