Anthony Joshua says he does not take any opponent lightly as he prepares to open the undercard for Carl Froch v George Groves II at Wembley on Saturday.
Joshua, who trains out of Finchley ABC in Barnet, will face Matt Legg and insists preparing for a tough fight is the only way for him.
“I prepare for tough fights. I look forward to these guys that will really test me because pressure brings out the best in me,” said Joshua.
“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.
“It’s pretty simple. I’ve just become a bit more dedicated and kept my life simple. When I first started, I was a bit of a wild child. I wouldn’t say I took it for granted but now I really enjoy what I’m doing and want to make the most of it,” added the Olympic gold medallist.
The Watford-born heavyweight is unbeaten in five fights since turning professional, winning by knockout in each.
Fighting at Wembley Stadium will be a special occasion for Joshua, who says he hopes to headline a show of the same stature soon.
“I’m starting the show but hopefully one day I’ll be headlining. I hope to start the night off with a bang. I’ve got a domestic fighter who’s coming to give it a go. He’ll be trying to catch me so may the best man win,” said Joshua.
“It was a big decision to go pro but I’ll never regret it. I’m happy with where I’m at and the team I've got. Now I’m five fights in, it’s a great honour to be part of one of the biggest fights in British boxing history.”
