World famous boxer, Anthony Joshua is shedding the pounds for his hugely-anticipated fight against Joseph Parker.
The undefeated Brit will defend his IBA and WBA heavyweight belts while Parker will put his WBO belt on the line in the unification bout on March 31 at Principality Stadium in Cardiff.
Joshua is fully into his training now and promoter Eddie Hearn decided to pop by to see how things were going.
The Matchroom boss posted a clip to Twitter yesterday showing the 28-year-old stepping onto the scales.
Fully clothed, he comes in at 17st 6lbs which – to any normal person – is a huge weight.
But, given that Joshua weighed 18st 2lbs for his most recent fight against Carlos Takam and that he has the extra load of clothes, it means the boxer could come in almost a stone lighter.
Despite his imperious performances in the ring, some pundits have criticised the Olympic gold medallists towering physique for limiting his motion.
And last month, Joshua admitted he was hoping to cut down.
“I was 18st 4lbs for the Takam fight but I’m already 17st 8lbs now,” he said.
“I’m watching everything I eat. It’s down to experience,” Joshua said last month.
“We will see how I get on in sparring and stuff and tailor it if we need to.”
