Anthony Joshua admits it is time for him to “step up” in his career as he prepares to face Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium.
Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ, the 27-year-old Joshua said: ‘Everyone has to step up in their career and I am just doing mine now, whether it was against Klitschko or any of the other champions, I wouldn’t have turned down the opportunity.
‘When we’ve been training, we’ve always been training for fights like this. Even when I was fighting people who were not as talented or experienced as Klitschko, we were always training as if I was fighting better opponents.’
Joshua will be backed by a sell-out 90,000-strong crowd at Wembley, the vast majority of whom will be right behind the Watford fighter, but he just wants to focus on writing his own page in boxing history.
