Anthony Joshua: 'I won't underestimate Matt Legg'

British heavyweight Anthony Joshua insists that he won't underestimate opponent Matt Legg in their bout at Wembley on Saturday night.

British heavyweight Anthony Joshua has indicated that he will look to stop Matt Legg at the earliest opportunity when they clash at Wembley on Saturday night.

Joshua has won his first five matches in the professional ranks inside two rounds, but the Olympic gold medallist has insisted that he won't be tempted to look for more time in the ring against his 38-year-old opponent.

The 24-year-old is quoted by Sky Sports News as saying: "If I see a weakness in my opponent, I'm going to exploit it because if I get caught or beat, I'll regret not having taken the chance. Not every fight is going to be a knockout.

"I prepare for tough fights. I look forward to these guys that will really test me because pressure brings out the best in me."

Joshua will open the stellar event in North London, which is being headlined by the IBF and WBA super-middleweight clash between Carl Froch and George Groves.
