Anthony Joshua completely undaunted by Charles Martin in stare down ahead of IBF title fight


Simon Lloyd

The big one is nearly upon us.

Anthony Joshua came face-to-face with Charles Martin at the weigh-in ahead of Saturday’s IBF world title fight.

The Watford man tipped the scales at 17st 6lbs, whereas the champion weighed in at 17st 7lbs – a pound heavier.

As far as the stare down was concerned, it’s fair to say we’ve seen livelier ones in recent years. A bit of chatter from Martin failed to rattle Joshua’s cage ahead of the pair’s meeting in The O2.
