ANTHONY JOSHUA opened his 10-week training camp, ahead of his next world title defence, with a public run through Hampstead Heath.

After he sent out a message on social media with instructions on where to join him, hundreds flocked to take a turn round the park with the IBF heavyweight champion.

“This is the start of my camp, this is the start of the campaign, a great turn out honestly,” Joshua he told the cameras. “It’s about bringing people together.”

“I’ve been doing some light cardio, I’ve been doing conditioning. Boxing starts Monday, this is the start of my real cardio, now I can just kick into gear,” he explained.

His fight will be on November 26 at the Manchester Arena, with Kubrat Pulev, Bermane Stiverne and Joseph Parker in the frame. The opponent will be unveiled in two weeks.

“September 26 will be the announcement, that’s what I’m hearing,” Joshua said. “It was out of the three, Parker, Pulev, Stiverne, that was the shortlist and if it’s not one of them, then they’re all going to be on the show.”
