Betting Site: Joshua already looking at winning world title

Betting sites all over the world were very excited to learn that before making his professional debut on Saturday, Anthony Joshua is already looking at winning a world title.
Joshua, who at the London Olympics won the super-heavyweight gold medal, and is a very big favourite with pay per head sportsbooks, will take on Italy’s Emanuele Leo at the O2 Arena, and many people with a betting shop can’t wait to see the action.
Even though Leo is undefeated, betting sites and pay per head sportsbooks saw that he never fought outside his home country and only faced one boxer with a winning record.
Betting sites found out that Joshua, 23-years-old, already looks ahead to what he hopes to make in the years to come, saying that he will not step into unknown territory with his first professional fight.
“I know what I’m getting into, I know how to prepare for it mentally,” he told Sky Sports News.
Price per head services and many people with a betting shop following the fighter hope to see him as ready as possible.
“That’s why I am very relaxed going into October 5. Experiences which I didn’t have as an amateur, I have as a professional.
“It’s the start of a journey, hopefully it’s a great one and we will get that world title, God willing. I’m with a good promotional team and I’m sure they can pull the strings to make it happen.”
He added of Leo: “It is what it is, he’s coming to fight and I’m coming to fight. We all train, we’re all boxers and someone’s got to walk out a winner. That’s what I’m preparing to be.”
Eddie Hearn, Joshua’s promoter, believes that the right decision was made to pit the debutant against an undefeated fighter, and in the future he is ready to give him more testing bouts, something that pay per head sportsbooks and betting sites everywhere really want to see.
“I wanted him to have a tough test. We’re going to try and potentially move him on, he’s going learn every time,” Hearn said.
“I want someone who is going to come and try to beat Anthony Joshua, because that is when I think you’re going to see the sensational performances and knockouts.
