Anthony Joshua looking forward to Dorian Darch fight

Anthony Joshua anticipates a special return to the ExCel Arena - the scene of his Olympic triumph - when he takes on Welsh heavyweight Dorian Darch next week.

British heavyweight Anthony Joshua has said that he is looking forward to his return to the ExCel Arena, where he will take on Dorian Darch, a week on Saturday.

The 24-year-old from Watford won Olympic gold at the ExCel last year, and is prepared for a rush of emotion when he steps out into the arena once again - this time in his fourth professional fight.

"This is where I learnt a lot, it is where I can say the heights of my amateur career happened," BoxRec News quotes him as saying. "I will never forget the Games and especially that incredible Sunday when I won the gold.

"I'm at the start of a fresh new chapter now though, the Olympics was amazing but it's in the past. I am loving life in the pro ranks and learning every day.

"Dorian is a tough test for just my fourth fight and he'll want to make a name for himself, as all my opponents do. I am grounded, I am focused and I am taking every fight very seriously."

Joshua has won all three of his previous engagements by knockout.
