“I feel I’ve got 10 years left in boxing and I want to cement my legacy.”

Although he is still keen to add Deontay Wilder’s WBC title to his collection, ‘AJ’ was reluctant to look past his 38-year-old challenger.

In what will undoubtedly be another huge night of boxing at Wembley Stadium, Joshua admitted the clash will be a ‘scrap’ and is another challenge towards the ultimate goal of becoming undisputed champion.

He told Sky Sports News; “The end goal is to become undisputed champion, i.e get a gold medal, but I have to fight Povetkin, and I have to concentrate on what’s next.

“It’s one step. Povetkin isn’t my end all and be all.

“I’m in a tournament, I’ve got to beat Povetkin, I’ve got to beat Wilder, then I’ll achieve my goal of getting that gold medal, and becoming undisputed champion of the world.”
