Anthony Joshua Not Concerned Facing Southpaw Otto Wallin
Anthony Joshua says he isn’t worried about fighting a southpaw in Otto Wallin on Saturday night.
Joshua and Wallin are set to headline the ‘Day of Reckoning’ card on Saturday night in a very intriguing matchup. In Joshua’s last two fights, he lost to Oleksandr Usyk who is a southpaw, but the Brit believes Wallin is a much different southpaw.
“No. none at all. My goal is to turn what some would call a negative and look it at – from my perspective – as how can I turn it into a positive,” Joshua said on the DAZN One to One show. “The lessons I’ve learned from previous competitions against southpaws, I can take into this preparations and know how to get better. So no, none at all. I can only get better from what I’ve been through to where I’m gonna be on December 23rd.”
Anthony Joshua also believes he’s a much better fighter now and is confident he will beat Otto Wallin on Saturday to set up the massive fight against Deontay Wilder in 2024.
“It’s tough but I’m tough anyway,” Joshua said. “I’m rough, I’m ready. That’s my perception of myself so that’s why I’m here. It wasn’t about, ‘If you fight this date, this will be your reward.’ It was more, ‘I’ve got a date’ and I was like, thankfully. I said I wanted to fight three times this year and I get to fulfill what my vision was at the start of the year so I’m looking forward to it for sure. Regardless of how long I had.”
