Lennox Lewis has stated that Anthony Joshua could not have picked a better time to face Wladimir Klitschko ahead of their Saturday fight.
Anthony Joshua will tussle with the veteran heavyweight boxer with his IBF belt and the WBA ‘super’ belt on the line at Wembley.
Lewis does not think Klitschko has what it takes to beat the unbeaten British boxer, with his last fight a loss to Tyson Fury 18 months ago.
Lewis told Sky Sports News HQ: “Joshua is big, powerful and strong. Right now any time he steps into the ring he’s knocking everybody out.
“All these heavyweights are sitting outside of the ropes, waiting to see if Wladimir is going to fall by the wayside. Anthony said no – while you guys are waiting I am going after him. I commend him for that and it’s the right time to go after him.
“Obviously there is a little glitch in his armour – Tyson showed that. Wladimir is definitely beatable and you have to go in there positive. Joshua has got a lot in his head right now, lots of people will be there and there is a lot of pressure, but he’s focused and he knows what he wants to do. I think it’s going to be a great fight.”
