Joshua: Klitschko sparring has me firing for Manchester debut

Anthony Joshua MBE says sparring with Heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko has him fired up for his clash with Konstantin Airich at the Phones 4u Arena in Manchester on Saturday, live on Sky Sports.

The London 2012 Olympic star spent ten days with the IBF, WBA, WBO, IBO and The Ring title holder and 1996 Olympic champion in Austria ahead of Klitschko’s now-rearranged title defence against Kubrat Pulev.

Joshua has yet to go beyond two rounds in the paid ranks but German-based Kazakh Airich brings a wealth of experience to Lancashire this weekend with 17 KO wins and 153 rounds in the bank – so Joshua expects his time with Klitschko to be invaluable.
