American heavyweight Dominic Breazeale is confident he will be the man to silence Anthony Joshua’s fans when the pair meet on Saturday night in London.
The duo will meet for Joshua’s IBF title at the 02 Arena, with the Brit the heavy favourite following his explosive start to the professional ranks.
Joshua will make his first defence of his title after he beat Charles Martin earlier this year inside just rounds.
Breazeale, 13.00 to win by KO/TKO or DQ, arrived in London last week and insists he is feeling comfortable just days before the fight.
He brings an unbeaten record to England and the 30-year-old is adamant that he will shock the world and silence Joshua’s home support.
“It’s nice to be here and good to be in London. It’s a good place to be right now,” he told Sky Sports News HQ.
“They love him (Joshua) here but I am sorry I have had to come over the pond and ruin their day, but it’s one of those situations.
I’ve come to win and put on a big show and me and Anthony Joshua are going to fight on June 25 – and I am looking forward to it.
“I am probably the biggest fighter he’s fought, 6ft 7ins, 255lbs. I’ve probably got the same hand-speed, probably a bit more power and I can definitely take a shot.
“It’s going to be two gladiators going at it and Anthony Joshua knows that.”
