It might not be the Wladimir Klitschko fight Anthony Joshua was previously hoping for but Eric Molina may still represent a stiff challenge for the IBF world heavyweight champion.

Molina has lost three of his 28 fights to date, including his last shot at a world title against WBC belt holder Deontay Wilder in 2015, however, has since recovered to win his two subsequent bouts by knockout.

His opponent on Saturday, Joshua, will need to take the 34-year-old's challenge seriously and f his Instagram profile is anything to go by, certainly looks in the best possible shape to defend his IBF title for the second time.

The British heavyweight has been regularly posting various clips from his training over the last few weeks as the build up to Saturday's main event at the Manchester Arena intensifies.

However, his latest update might just be the most impressive yet.

The video shows the 27-year-old tie two kettlebells together with a towel and proceed to lift them using just his teeth!

It is actually quite a bizarre thing to watch as Joshua stretches all of his neck muscles to perform 15 repetitions.

After releasing the weights the Olympic gold medalist looks particularly happy with himself and puts on a casual pose to the camera.

If Molina wasn't already fearful about the enormity of his task, he might be now.

Joshua has rarely been tested in any of his 17 fights to date and is the extremely heavy favourite to retain his world title, with odds as small as 1/50 available at some bookmakers.

Presuming he comes through Saturday's fight unscathed, a date has already been pencilled in for his next big bout.

Clear your calendars for April 29 as Joshua-Klitschko could finally take place.

After the Ukranian picked up an injury that ruled out any contest in 2016, the mega-fight with Joshua is already being lined up to materialise next year at Wembley.
