Newly turned pro, Anthony Fowler will be present for tonight’s show at Wembley Stadium. The 26-year-old will be supporting his fellow ex-GB teammates as well as Anthony Joshua.

“The Machine’ believes Joshua is soaking up all the pressure and is ready for the biggest fight in British history. The Liverpudlian has backed Joshua to defeat the Ukrainian, but not as how many has predicted.

“He’s a chilled-out fella and is adapting to the pressure he’s under. Josh is a happy fella and will take it all in his stride,” Fowler exclusively told World Boxing News.

“I believe he will beat Klitschko on points. Wlad is going to be a bit crafty I think and will be holding and moving out of range a lot. I just think Joshua will apply the pressure and his selection of shots will give him the win.”

Tyson Fury has recently confirmed he is on the trail back after posting on social media of his training in Marbella with Billy Joe Saunders.

He has been in typical form and has lambasted several heavyweights including Joshua. He has revealed he will be waiting in the wings of the winner in tonight’s fight.

But Fowler believes Fury is craving the attention.

“I think Tyson is missing the limelight and seems to have been the forgotten man with Joshua and Klitschko stealing the headlines for their big fight with each other.

“He’s a bit bitter and is trying to get back in the limelight by shouting his mouth off but Anthony is the man, he’s a true champion. He hasn’t changed since day one and I think he’d beat Fury,” he added.
