Anthony Joshua says that he is relishing his bout against Hrvoje Kisicek at York Hall this Thursday.

Anthony Joshua has expressed his excitement at taking on his next opponent at the York Hall on Thursday evening.

The 24-year-old will enter the ring for his third professional fight at the venue against Croatian Hrvoje Kisicek following two KO wins.

"It is a really intimate theatre of boxing," quotes Joshua as saying. "There will be less than 2,000 people and everyone is over your head. The last time I boxed there was when I was an amateur, winning the ABAs.

"That was a great feeling so to go back there in my third pro fight with Prizefighter is going to be really good again. It is going to be great to get in there."

Joshua went pro after winning gold at the London Olympic Games last year.
