Ahead of his possible clash against Ukranian boxer Wladimir Klitschko, Anthony Joshua seems to have opted for a rather unorthodox location for training. 

The British athlete was spotted going through his paces in a small parking lot, with a friend holding up the pads for him to hit and dodge. 

The Olympic gold medal winner, who is trained by Tony Sims, seemed to be working on his defence and upper body movements in the wake of his potential encounter with the former World Heavyweight Champion.

The 26-year-old is set to fight on November 26, with no opponent having been confirmed yet. However, talks are underway with Klitschko's camp for a unification fight, which would see Joshua's IBF World Heavyweight title be put up against the WBA title, which is currently held by Tyson Fury. 

In recent developments, Fury's camp have stated that the 28-year-old could be suffering from two mental illnesses that have greatly affected his daily life, as well as his boxing abilities, which led to the English boxer having to withdraw from the fight with Klitschko, which was set to take place on October 29, with both the WBA and WBO titles up for grabs.

This is the second time Fury has pulled out of a fight with the Ukranian, and if WBA president Gilberto Mendoza is not satisfied with the medical evidence, the title could be simply handed to Klitschko. 

Joshua will be confident ahead of the fight against the 40-year-old veteran, having successfully defended his title against Dominic Breazeale in April, following his capture of the belt from Charles Martin. 

Promoter Eddie Hearn is working hard to negotiate a deal with Klitschko's camp, specifically their representative Berndt Boente, to confirm the much awaited match up.

Hearn said: "Its's a natural fight. On Saturday, we reached out to Berndt Boente and since then we've had a couple of positive conversations and it's a fight he really wants.

"If the WBA belt is on the line, which I believe it would be, then it's a unification fight between Joshua and Klitschko."

This further adds validity to the claims that Fury could be stripped of the WBA title.
