Klitschko came in ten pounds lighter than his 27-year-old opponent at 17st 2lb 6oz.
Joshua came out to a raucous reception and, weirdly, as Klitschko was weighing in.
The announcement of Klitschko’s weight could barely be heard over Joshua’s music and the crowd’s cheers.
Klitskcho was as calm as ever on stage and did not seem fussed by his weigh in being interrupted by Joshua.
‘It doesn’t matter. I’ll go from round to round,’ he said when asked for a prediction.
‘I’m definitely reloaded. I wish him good luck.’
