In a recent interview, heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua provided an update on his previously injured knee.
In June, Joshua busted his knee while running through the woods. The British boxer was then seen on crutches at a BLM protest. Fans worried about Joshua’s health, but the boxer assured that he will be fine soon.
“Respect for the supporters concerned about my leg. I bust my knee running miles in the woods. Doc said to take all weight off it for two/three weeks. Still training, still active, still punching. Two weeks more to go, then it’s off,” Joshua said in June. Read the full story here.Anthony Joshua claims that his knee has recovered
Three weeks ago, Joshua uploaded a video of himself throwing hard punches. Although the punches looked devastating, Joshua was throwing them while sitting.
Joshua now claims that his knee has fully recovered. He said that he is fully training for his upcoming fight.
“The knee is as good as it can be,” Joshua told Sky Sports. “I am in full training. I didn’t stop training even when I had the knee [injury].”
Unlike before, Joshua said that he is throwing punches while standing up. As of now, he is looking for sparring partners to train.
“I’m sure many of my social media followers saw me on the heavy bag sitting down. I’m standing up now. I’m on two feet and I’m sure we can start sparring, so I’ll be looking for some sparring partners in about a week or two to start training camp.”
Joshua last fought in December 2019. He defeated former champion Andy Ruiz Jr. and recaptured his lost belts. He was then scheduled to fight Kubrat Pulev in June. Nevertheless, the bout got postponed because of the pandemic. The fight is now being targeted for December of this year.
Should Joshua get past Pulev, he is likely to face off against fellow Britisher, Tyson Fury.

After getting a good grasp of what's going to happen in the upcoming series, Anthony gave his thoughts on what he is most excited about filming in episode one.
"Steve hasn't written anything like that in previous seasons or any of his other works, so that's a sequence we're really exited about filming," he smiled, excitedly.
"It took us a long time to find the location and to put it together."
Some scenes will have a slow build and several moving parts which will come together unlike anything that has been done before.4Director Anthony Bryne cannot wait to film the new series
Bryne exclaimed: "It's a huge undertaking to go and do this in a TV drama that doesn't have the budget that a lot of the bigger American shows have, that we're competing with.
"So, that's why I can't wait to film!"

He was with another Peaky executive Paul, when he received the email from screenwriter Steven Knight and the pair couldn't quite believe their eyes.
He explained: "I checked my emails and I'd just got season six episode one from Steve and I was like 'Sh*t do you want to know what happens' because I didn't know, you have to cut what you have!
