Watch: Martin v Joshua press conference / head-to-head

Phil Jay 19/02/2016

Charles Martin and Anthony Joshua got up close and personal on Friday as the pair kicked off their official media announcement in London.

The undefeated heavyweights have agreed to square off for Martin’s IBF championship at the O2 Arena on April 9, with Joshua participating in his first world title contest.

Martin won the belt with a third round victory over Vyacheslav Glazkov in January and immediately called out Joshua to challenge him.

Negotiation went smoothly between both camps and ticket sales went through the roof as they went on general sale of Friday morning.

The fight is already a sell-out and will be televised on Sky Sports Box Office HD alongside some of the top operators Matchroom Boxing have to offer.
