Anthony Joshua on becoming a champion again
In a recent interview with Sky Sports, Anthony Joshua shared his thoughts on becoming the heavyweight champion and spoke about fighting Otto Wallin. "It's everything," Joshua said, as quoted by skysports.com.
"It is to become a three-time heavyweight champion. But it's also to become a dominant fighter, a better fighter. What that means is the championship will follow that. If I go in the ring and I dominate and I'm better than my opponent, naturally the championship will be around my waist.
Because I'm just better. I'm destined for that. It's been great, honestly. It's been really good to be back home as well during this period. I've spent a long time, some people might say it's not that long but I feel it was a long, good time in America.

"The [Wallin] fight presented itself at a perfect time while I was developing in the UK. So I decided to stay put and it was a really good decision. I've learned a lot and I'm quite happy. People see it.
Sometimes people can see in you what you don't see in yourself. So you just have to see it in yourself and 100 per cent I'm starting to see it in myself. I'm pushing, I'm going to get to the next level".
