Joshua: This could be easy

Anthony Joshua suggested beating Wladimir Klitschko could be “easy”.

The pair faced off at the press conference at Sky Central on Thursday, two days before their heavyweight showdown at Wembley Stadium.

Klitschko was in a mischievous mood when they met for the first time in three months, but Joshua made it quite clear what he is expecting.

“This fight could be easy – I could go in there and catch Wladimir and ‘boom!'” he told Sky Sports.

“He could suddenly be wobbling and then I take him out.

“Then, the next fight could be the one that people think is going to be easy and I get caught.

“You’re going to find out new things about me throughout my career.”

Joshua also laughed off the revelation that Klitschko will be carrying his prediction in a USB tucked inside his robe on Saturday night.

‘AJ’ pointed out that he has “been there before” in the shape of Kevin Johnson, who he knocked out in less than five minutes back in May 2015.

“It took me back to the time when I fought Johnson,” he said.

“He was at the press conference, and said ‘I’m going to have a book, man, explaining how to beat Anthony Joshua.’

“It obviously wasn’t ever released because he got knocked out!

“But it took me back to the strategy of how people can try and get into your head. Luckily, I’ve been there before. I can go to the trenches.”
