Date of Birth:
JOSH kicked off his career with a success outpointing veteran Jamie Quinn in Leeds in November 2021.
The Batley boxer won National Senior Development titles at Under-60kg in 2018 and 2019, and was victorious in 15 of his 16 senior amateur bouts.
He wants to mirror his idol Gennady Golovkin with a rack of chilling performances and says: “I want to stop people and give fans watching a really good fight.
“TV networks and viewers want to see somebody knocked out. And, if fights go 12 rounds they want to see a war.”
Hargreaves started boxing aged nine, but drifted away when he was still at school and returned to the sport, aged 20.
“I had six or seven years out. Like a lot of kids, I quit boxing because I was bored and then as I got older, I realised it was something I was good at,” added the Yorkshireman.
“I didn’t start boxing again to become anything. It was because I started enjoying it.”
Hargreaves who is also a five-times Yorkshire champion is now trained in Leeds by Sean O’Hagan.
Outside of boxing, Hargreaves runs a business with his two brothers buying and selling used cars and vans.
