Anthony Joshua: 'I will enjoy Wembley experience'

British heavyweight Anthony Joshua insists that there won't be added pressure on his shoulders when he opens the card at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night.

British heavyweight Anthony Joshua has revealed that he is keen to embrace the experience of competing in front of 80,000 at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night.

Joshua faces Matt Legg in the first fight on the undercard of the IBF and WBA super-middleweight clash between Carl Froch and George Groves, but the Olympic gold medallist has insisted that there won't be added pressure on him when he walks out in front of a capacity crowd in London.

The 24-year-old told reporters: "I'm just trying to enjoy this whole experience. This event is going to be once in a lifetime, so instead of putting the pressure on my shoulders, I'm just going to enjoy it.

"I'm coming back from a minor injury. I'm used to competing every month but I've had 30 days out of the ring so to get back into the ring on a stage like this is going to be class."

Joshua has won his first five professional bouts inside two rounds, while Legg has seven victories from nine contests.
