Speaking in an interview with IFL TV, Anthony Joshua believes that the fight will not go the distance. When asked to predict a round towards the end of his chat with Kugan Cassius, he enthused:

All questions will be answered on Saturday night, though, with initial TV coverage starting at 5pm on Sky Box Office (UK and Irish time).
