ANTHONY JOSHUA has developed a new mindset since his last fight in March.

The IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight champion won the third of those titles when defeating Joseph Parker and will next fight Russia’s Alexander Povetkin at Wembley Stadium on September 22.

Attempts to secure WBC champion Deontay Wilder as his opponent, before the confirmation of Povetkin, ended in frustration and are expected to be revived for Joshua’s next date at Wembley on April 13, but the champion has learnt not to look beyond his coming fight.
