Deontay Wilder split on pick for Joshua vs. Klitschko heavyweight showdown

Deontay Wilder split on pick for Joshua vs. Klitschko heavyweight showdown

Joshua defends his IBF title and hopes to win the WBA belt once held by Fury in what could be the definitive fight of his career against Klitschko at Wembley Stadium.

The 27-year-old Joshua's status as favourite for Saturday's fight owes largely to the belief Klitschko's defeat to Fury came because he is in decline and that he will struggle to resist the younger fighter's power and athleticism.

Even if he is too old, which I think he is, he's in a good place mentally and that's a unsafe fighter.

Joshua is a strong favourite to retain his IBF world heavyweight title with the backing of a partisan crowd in his homeland on Saturday.

Vitali Klitschko expects his brother Wladimir to beat Anthony Joshua because he knows he has "no second chance" in the twilight of his career. "Sponsors, people want things from him, money, interviews, this show and that show - these are all things that happened to me".

Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer? Anthony Joshua is a great fighter, I'm taking on the best out there to be the best. "It's great, it's beyond motivation and I just only can win, I can't lose, I only can win". "He's trying to stay focused, realised that this is a big fight and that everybody is depending on him", Lewis explained.

'Manny told me that a day or so before every fight he saw the outcome, ' says Banks.

"We were working on it before AJ's [Joshua] last fight", said Matchroom Sport head of boxing Frank Smith. If it were just exclusively up to me then I'd be 1,000 percent confident, but it's not just me.

"It's the era of United Kingdom boxing, I'm not holding onto it myself, I want everyone to shine", he said.

Explaining how Sin City was no longer on his "tick list", Joshua had said: "It's like you have to go to America to get respected: no, not any more". Fighters know instinctively when they have hurt their opponent and none are quicker than Joshua at moving in for the kill. I do hear it a lot, he's too old, he's faded.

I don't think Wladimir is going to be any more aggressive than he has in his past fights.
