Joshua who beat Wladimir Klitschko in April to retain his titles revealed that he is getting himself prepared for the bout in a special way.
“I’m looking forward to getting back into the ring. As soon as my last fight was over, I wanted to know what was next,” Joshua was quoted on Daily Mail after his photo session on Monday at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.
“I’ve been ticking over; I’ve been training after I left the body to recover. I am looking forward to expressing a different approach. I want to show what I have learned from my last fight.
“It is about finesse and out-classing your opponents, but if I have to go to war, I can go to war. I’m prepared to go into the trenches.
“But sometimes I can be smart and wise and take an opponent out without going to the trenches. I just look for the win one way or the other.
“I learned that sometimes you can watch a million videos of your opponent but it is always different when you step into the ring.
“I am starting to understand that when people come and fight me I have to be prepared for the strongest challengers.
“It is not so much about making a statement to anyone; it is just showing what I have learned.”
