Josh Buatsi knows silent approach means fists must talk him into world title shot vs Marko Calic

SILENT ASSASSIN Josh Buatsi knows refusing to talk the talk means he has to walk the walk in sensational fashion.

The studious Ghana-born South Londoner has all the tools to become a light-heavyweight world champion and boxing superstar – apart from a big mouth.

Josh Buatsi gives nothing away on the mic or in the ring

The 27-year-old is being linked with domestic clashes with Matchroom stablemate Callum Johnson and long-time rival Anthony Yarde but refuses to stir up bad blood that could drive up interest and earnings.

Instead the 2016 Olympic bronze medalist has sent chilling messages with 10 of his dozen wins coming inside the distance and he fancies another against Marko Calic at the empty Marshall Arena in Milton Keynes.

“It’s just not my style to call people out”, Buatsi told SunSport. “I know some people want that from me but I have to stay true to myself in life and in general.

“For me to do something, act in a certain way or out of character, would play on my mind so much.

“So you will not catch me calling people before or after fights, or on Twitter. I don’t Tweet enough in general so I definitely won’t be faking it.

Croydon ace Buatsi is getting peppered with questions on future domestic battles

“If you are not calling people out and raising your profile on social media then you have to produce every time in the ring.

“I know every time that I go in the ring that I have to win and put on a good performance because I refuse to chat crap before or after.

“Those minutes or rounds are my only chance to make a statement, that’s a pressure I put on myself and one that works for me.”

The Anthony Joshua-managed ace has been a goldmine for boxing punters looking for a sure-thing but injuries and the COVID-19 pandemic have kept him out of action for 13 months.

Josh Buatsi has been out of the ring for 13 months and wants to remind the world of his power

So the comeback, against a respected Croatian ex-amateur champion, will have bookies running for the safes after a long time away.

Buatsi laughed: “I cannot condone gambling, I do get a lot of messages before the fight and a lot after but I don’t pay that any attention.

“If people win money on my fights then I am very happy for them, I am sorry if me being out for so long has cost them but hopefully we are all back to winning ways this weekend.

“It’s been over 400 days so I want to enjoy an exciting comeback and remind everyone of what I can do.”
