At another fiery press conference in London on Monday, an angry Joshua said: ‘There’s not much I can do to that face… but I’m going to reconstruct his face and I’m looking forward to the challenge.’
‘This is all I know. This is all I do. I know how to knock people out and beat them up. All that spirit this boy has got over there, talking s***, I’m going to strip it from him. Every ounce of spirit he has got, that is what I do to people. I’m going to strip him of his soul in that ring.
‘Look at his face, I am going to reconstruct his face on June 1. I do the job, I am a good boxer, heavy-handed puncher and have beaten better opponents than anyone else out there.
‘Landlord in the States, I am going to be your surgeon in the UK. You are going to have a makeover.’
The two fighters will meet at Madison Square Garden in New York on June 1, where Anthony Joshua will defend his IBF, WBA and WBO titles on his US debut.
