Meanwhile, Joshua spoke about his challenger mindset in the pre-fight press conference.
"It's interesting to be on this side of the table," he said. "As you said in my 16th fight, I challenged for the world title, challenged for the title again with Klitschko, then Parker, and now I'm challenging again, so this is my fourth title challenge in a short space of time.
"I'm used to being in this position, and even when you're champion, I think Andy being a respected heavyweight he knows you have to have the challenge and mindset.
"All these quotes that these fighters come up with is reality, challenger mindset. I've said that previously when I had the belts around my waist.
"Now I'm speaking this into existence, this is my challenge and mindset. So, I'm going back to my 16th fight, focused and determined on the goal."
