By Vanessa Ekpereka (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Anthony Joshua is gearing-up for his era-defining Tyson Fury showdown with a bullish attitude, insisting 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 assures new is coming – both men are in full training.
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.
‘Am I excited? I ain’t excited, it is what it is,’ Joshua told the skipper of his hometown club, Watford’s Troy Deeney, on the striker’s podcast.
‘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.
