“We used four or five boxers to box with Anthony through camp,” said McCracken about sparring. “A different mix of styles – Mariusz Wach, Bogdan Dinu from Romania, Joe Joyce the Olympic silver medallist, and Lawrence Okolie for his speed.
“All of the fitness work is done, most of the sparring is done, and he’s just looking forward to the fight. “It’s a little bit of an irritant, the last few sessions, but we’ll get them done.”
Joshua’s camp has been spent at the Institute of Sport in Sheffield, the home of Great Britain’s Olympic boxing squad.
