Joshua Flies To Baltimore

Nigerian-born British heavyweight boxer, Anthony Olufemi Olaseini Joshua headed off to Baltimore on Sunday to visit Under Armour’s headquarters with his promoter Eddie Hearn.

Joshua, who has a sponsorship deal with the sporting brand, took to Instagram to post a photo himself hanging out with Hearn on a plane, captioning the post: ‘Baltimore bound.’

Hearn, however, was a fair bit more revealing on the matter. He also took to his social media account, commenting: ‘Baltimore with Under Armour then NYC for the #joshuaklitschko press conference.’

Hearn then took to Twitter to post a short video of Joshua upon touchdown at Under Armour HQ in Baltimore, going through his paces in a quick warm-up drill.

Joshua and Klitschko will face off on April 29 as the two titans do battle for the IBF, IBO and WBA Super Heavyweight Championships of the world.

Ahead of the fight, a capacity extension has been given the green light by London mayor Sadiq Khan, meaning 90,000 excited fans will be packed into Wembley Stadium.

This means the much-anticipated bout will match the British record attendance set by Len Harvey and Jock McAvoy at White City Stadium in 1939.

Speaking to the BBC, Hearn said: ‘Sadiq (Khan) urged me to bring the biggest fights to the city and I’m delighted to have the biggest fight in British boxing history at Wembley.’
