“That’s why they feared me when I was in the ring, I was an annihilator. It’s all I was born for. Now those days are gone it’s empty, I’m nothing. I’m working on the art of humbleness… That’s the reason I’m crying cause I’m not that person no more, and I miss him. Because sometimes I feel like a b***h, because I don’t want that person to come out because if he comes out hell will come with him.”
He went on to say that he fears who he used to be, going so far to say that he “hates” who he was because he’s “scared of him.”
All of Joshua’s four belts will be on the line for the contest including the IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO straps.
And the 38-year-old was delighted that the wait is finally over for him to test his might against the reigning world heavyweight champion in London.
