"This is a breakthrough fight for me and I want to be back in the spotlight, I want to be a World champion again",Joshua told Asempa FM.

Anthony Mundine who is currently ranked No.4 contender for Floyd Mayweather’s WBA super welterweight title will be a good test for the "Hitter".

Clottey also sang praise on his manager, saying he wants to be with him till the end of his fighting career.

"My manager is very good, he gives me advice on fight contracts and he negotiates perfectly well with fight promoters. He does his job so well am always focused and have my eye on the prize. My former manager failed to do a lot of things right- he was bad", Clottey said.
