Anthony Joshua looks ahead to Wladimir Klitschko fight on April 29

Wembley Stadium plays host to a mouth-watering encounter between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko at the end of the month.

Joshua is undefeated in his four-year professional tenure and coming up face to face with the two-time world champion will undoubtedly be one of, if not, the toughest test he has faced during his career.

The Brit will look to defend his IBF world heavyweight title in front of a packed out crowd of 90,000 spectators on the 29th with the WBA strap also up for grabs for the victor.

Looking ahead to the fight, Joshua told Sky Sports News that it is ‘step up’ and claims he has ‘always been training for fights like this.’

“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 claimed.

“Now, I’m here, let’s get it on. 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.

“It doesn’t matter if there are 90,000 people, 9,000 people or 900 people, as long as I win that’s the main thing and it is history making.

“Three and a bit years as a pro and I am making history, so I am happy about that side of things.”

Klitschko’s experience

Confidence will be high in the Joshua camp going into the fight with an unbeaten record to his name but the experience of 41-year-old Klitschko may prove to be what separates them on the night.

The Ukrainian has been claiming scalps in the ring on a professional level 17 years longer than Joshua, winning 64 out of his total 68 fights. However, Klitschko hasn’t put the gloves on in way over a year which could prove costly come fight night.

What we do know is that the anticipated wait is nearly over so can Joshua maintain his incredible win streak or will Klitschko roll back the years and show the Brit he still has work to do to reach peak level?
