Potvetkin weighed in 11kgs lighter than Joshua at 100.698kgs

According to The Telegraph of UK, a confident-looking Joshua went face-to-face with Povetkin at the weigh-in 24 hours before the title fight.

“I’m going to have to put on my dancing shoes – he’s going to be quick,” says Joshua, who is significantly heavier than Povetkin.

“I’m a physical strong guy, I know how to box and it’s going to be a good fight.

“I’m chilled out. Proper relaxed. My trainer said to me: ‘Don’t stress now – because you’ll look back at these days as the best of your life’.”

“He’s had a great career, he’s only lost once to Klitschko.

“He finds a way to land shots and when his shots land they have a huge impact.

“If Anthony Joshua’s on the end of one of them then he’s in trouble.

“Yes, he’s 39-years-old, but he’s got loads of experience.
