OBSESSION has become Wladimir Klitschko’s watchword ahead of fighting Anthony Joshua on April 29. Klitschko, 41, has not boxed since losing his heavyweight world titles to Tyson Fury in 2015. Since then Anthony Joshua picked up one of his old belts while continuing his impressive knockout run.

But the Ukrainian is determined to become a three-time world champion.

“I am obsessed with winning this fight”, Wladimir Klitschko said. “It’s important for me to prove to myself that I am able to defeat every man facing me in the ring. I am ready to walk a long and hard walk to show myself that I can master myself and can be proud of myself.”
