"I kind of wanted to be a little heavier because Anthony Joshua's big, I wanted to carry his weight, take the punches well but I think being 10lbs lighter, I'm going to be a better fighter.

"I'm going to be faster, let my hands go and be faster on my feet as well.

"Ten pounds isn't going to make any difference, if anything it's going to make me stronger, it's going to make me faster, especially because he's going to be running around.
