Klitschko – who has been training with Joshua’s fights playing in the background – told AP: “It’s not as boring as it was with me during all those years.
“You can like me or hate me but when one person conquers it all, it is boring. I totally get it.”
The Ukrainian lost his titles to Tyson Fury back in 2015 and knows the clash against Joshua could be his last.
And Klitschko is ready to change up his style to a more aggressive attack in order to earn back his place at the top of boxing.

Klitschko added: “I understand I don’t have titles anymore, but in a certain way I feel relieved.
“I feel calmer, more free. Before it was all defending and caution.
“Now it’s different, and I like the feeling that I don’t have any pressure.
“I have nothing to defend so I need to bounce back and be the hunter.
“Joshua has the title and it’s something I will need to get.
“It will be a totally different attitude. I will not hold myself back.”
