Anthony Joshua sees through Klitschko mind tricks

'Everything he has gone through he seems to be throwing at me,' Anthony Joshua reckons

ANTHONY JOSHUA has told Wladimir Klitschko his mind games are transparent, although the Briton is wary of facing a wounded animal at Wembley.

Animosity between the two heavyweights has so far been absent ahead of Saturday’s bout in the capital when the undefeated Joshua will meet the 41-year-old Klitschko 17 months on for the Ukrainian’s loss to Tyson Fury.

Neither man is renowned for the insults or press-conference confrontations that can preface other fights, and Klitschko’s attempts to get inside Joshua’s head have instead centred on his muscular physique as well as his opponent’s declaration he wants to be a billionaire.
