“Yeah, yeah 100 per cent,” Joshua told Sky Sports, when asked about watching Wilder.
“Styles make fights, I think Wilder will fare well against Breazeale. I think Wilder is too quick, he’s a very, very fast heavyweight, but Breazeale is tough, took me seven rounds.
“I hope Wilder does it in nine, so I can be like ‘hey I done it earlier’. You know how it is, comparisons and stuff, but yeah it will be interesting to see.
“You look at the small things, I look at the small details – when he’s getting tired, how many right hands he throws in a round. I look at something different, rather than comparisons to the rounds.”
