Anthony Joshua was completely stoic as he stared at Otto Wallin during their final face-off on Friday.
The former heavyweight world champion will clash with the Swedish contender tomorrow night in Saudi Arabia, on the same show as Deontay Wilder vs Joseph Parker.
It’s been reported that a two-fight deal is now agreed for AJ to face Wilder in 2024, should they both emerge victorious.
However, Joshua is not taking his eyes of Wallin, literally.
The Brit weighed in at 251lbs while his opponent was 238.6lbs.
They then faced off and Wallin had a few words for Joshua.
AJ ignored him and remained stone cold as he stared him directly in the eye.
“I’m happy, I’m jovial,” Joshua insisted in his interview afterwards.
“This is the best fight card in history and I wouldn’t wanna be anywhere else in the world right now.
“If my prayers are answered I’ll get the win.
“I’ve been focused, praying hard, and whatever God wants for me, I’m gonna follow that path.
“It’s not just prayer, I’m following up with action as well.”
Asked about Wilder negotiations going on behind the scenes, Joshua said: “I’m a serious fighter, I’m a serious businessman as well.
“I’ve got a great team behind me, they’re handling business, but let me focus on what I’ve got to focus on.
“I need to get this win.”
