As he closes in on his return to the ring, Anthony Joshua is fine tuning his final preparations ahead of his much-anticipated bout with Eric Molina.

 

Joshua will defend his IBF heavyweight title for the second time on Saturday at the Manchester Arena.

 

And standing in his way is Eric Molina, the 34-year-old challenger from America.
The 26-year-old share a picture of himself in training on Wednesday, showing off his muscles as he counts down the days until his return to the ring.

 

Alongside the caption, ‘T-minus 3 days’ Joshua looked primed and focused ahead of his next assignment.
The Brit’s last win came against Dominic Breazeale at The O2 Arena on June 25.

According to Dailymail ,Wladimir Klitschko revealed on Monday that his proposed fight with Johsua is pencilled in for April 29 next year.

Wembley Stadium is the preferred venue for the super-fight: ‘It is the most famous stadium in the world,’ said Klitschko’s manager Bernd Boente.

 

Both camps admit that minor points in the deal remain to be settled but the only conceivable risk to Joshua vs Klitschko is the outside chance of Molina springing an surprise on Joshua this Saturday.

 

Klitschko has dismissed that possibility: ‘I expect Joshua to win on Saturday and I am confident we will fight each other in April.’
