Anthony Joshua is getting himself to face his biggest nightmare; Tyson Fury, insisting that he’s prepared for ‘torture’ during training for the clash.
While doubts and promises swirl around the Battle of Britain clash – with Fury’s camp growing frustrated in negotiations, while Eddie Hearn is assuring news is coming.
The fight will unify the heavyweight division and the winner will go down as the undisputed king of his generation.
Joshua is as hungry as ever, and he’s certain he can fell the Gypsy King.
Joshua told the skipper of his hometown club, Watford’s Troy Deeney, on the striker’s podcast. “Am I excited? I ain’t excited, it is what it is.
“I’m getting ready to walk through a brick wall and nothing is getting in my way. I’m ready to go through whatever pain, torture, adversity I have to go through in order to win, that’s why I’m really looking forward to it.
“I know I’m the man of this division and I will be for a long time. I came through this game quick and the way I had to learn was through mistakes, on the public stage as well.
“I came into this game not to take part but to take over, I feel I’m on a different wavelength and frequency.
“I do it with a smile on my face but I’m dedicated to these things. Recapping over Covid I thought, man, I’ve put a lot into this and now I need to back myself.
The match promises to be a cracker and the fans can’t wait.
