Wladimir Klitschko has compared Anthony Joshua to ‘Arnold Schwarzenegger’ and suggests he will expose the IBF champion as a one-dimensional ‘puncher.’
Klitschko was impressed with Joshua’s muscular physique when they posed for pictures, but has hinted that he views the unbeaten 27-year-old as a predictable opponent.
“I have never seen AJ as big as he is right now,” said Klitschko. “He’s as big as probably Arnold Schwarzenegger in his best times.”
Asked to describe the comparison of styles, he added: “He’s a puncher. I’m a boxer that can punch.”
Vitali Klitschko, the former WBC heavyweight champion, has also made the trip to London and believes Joshua poses a more straightforward task for his younger brother after he was beaten on points by Tyson Fury in 2015.
“Before I received the information, I didn’t see so many fights from Joshua and after that, then investigate, study him and was happy. Good opponent for Wladimir to show his skills.”
