Anthony Joshua update from the man himself as he wraps up the last bit of training ahead of the biggest fight of 2017.
This time next we’ll know just how good of a boxer Britain’s Anthony Joshua is. He will have fought one of the best heavyweights of the modern boxing era in Wladimir Klitschko.
We will have gotten the chance to compare his fight with Klitschko with that of fellow UK heavyweight rival Tyson Fury in November 2015.
Can Joshua do it in more impressive fashion? Can he knock Klitschko out? We are six days away from finding out.
As his training camp finishes up today and Joshua recovers over the course of the next six days before the first bell, here is the final Anthony Joshua update from the man himself on his training camp conclusion:

Titled ‘itchy knuckles’ above, one gets the feeling that Joshua is really coming in to do some damage.
That’s what the heavyweights of old used to, get in there and go for the knockout. That’s why so many folks loved heavyweight boxing after all.
There is something about the big hitters getting in there and exchanging bombs that draws the crowd. If Joshua were to stop Klitschko in conclusive fashion, he will represent the new era of heavyweights most likely.
Time will tell if he can.
