“I went to see him yesterday, he looked absolutely sensational,” Hearn told Sky Sports.

“He’s moving so well. We know he’s brought in a couple of new trainers with Rob McCracken leading the way.

“I think he’s going to break him down, he’s going to dissect him, and he’s going to punish him. I think you’re going to see a statement. I don’t want to put too much pressure on him, but I really do. That’s what I think.

“AJ will always be a relaxed, humble guy, but I really believe having seen the improvement that he’s made, the spite in his punches, I think you’re going to get a thrilling display from Anthony Joshua.”
