HOME of the Welsh nationwide rugby crew, the Principality or Millennium Stadium will probably be buzzing with pleasure this Saturday night time.
The venue has the choice of getting the roof open or closed, relying on the climate.
That flexibility is likely one of the principal causes Joshua selected to battle in Cardiff, as different large venues haven’t got such luxuries.
AJ has predominantly fought on the O2, successful seven bouts there, together with his debut in opposition to Italian Emanuele Leo who he knocked out within the first spherical.
However the heavyweight champ has now outgrown the 20,000 seater, needing a a lot bigger viewers as he grows in stature and recognition.
The 28-year-old gained his WBA and IBO titles in opposition to Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium, however given England’s unpredictable climate, the prospect could not be taken once more within the Autumn months.

Will the roof be open or closed?
This is dependent on the weather in Cardiff this Saturday.
Forecasts are currently predicting rain at 7pm, which puts the undercard fights in jeopardy.
That rain is meant to clear by the time Joshua begins his ringwalk at 10pm.
It takes just 20 minutes for the roof to close at the Millennium Stadium, but the venue may not take the risk if there is intermittent rain.
