Joshua was quick to shoot back though, replying saying: "Typical Tyson Fury, always talking BS around fight time". It has been a real journey from growing up in Watford to fighting at Wembley Stadium. We at Boxing News 24 know how Wladimir fights. "It takes a special fight to break down barriers and boundaries but also networks and executives who believe in working with the best interest of fight fans in mind". "I feel calmer, more free". Before it was all defending and caution.
The fight shapes up as a familiar boxing matchup, with the up-and-coming young slugger from England tested by the aging veteran who has piled up a deep bag of tricks over the years.
The German has won all of her fights since turning professional but admits that Taylor, a London 2012 Olympic gold medallist, offers a different proposition to her opponents to date.
"I ain't going nowhere", said Joshua. It will be a totally different attitude. "But I would have gone back and forth".
Adam Booth is a man who knows Wladimir Klitschko well having prepared his ex-fighter David Haye for their fight a number of years back in Germany.
"I'll be upsetting a lot of people in Germany, but I think Joshua will win the fight, but it'll be exciting to watch", she added. 'At some point, it cramps your style'. Klitschko quickly rebounded by winning 10 in a row and captured his first world title (WBO) with a unanimous decision victory over Chris Byrd in 2000, a win which avenged a loss by his brother, Vitali, earlier that year.
Obviously the former heavyweight champion had something to say in response.
Meanwhile, he's enjoying the preparations for a fight he never thought he would get after his rematch with Fury was derailed by Fury's emotional problems.
"Twitter is about communication and it's just communicating", Joshua said of the spat. "Even at 41, I'm still improving in the sport that I have been in for so long". He's either great, or I'm still great.
David Haye - was the man harassing him for months to get a fight and was then humbled in the ring.
