Quite why Charles Martin, apart from the purse he?s being paid, chose to come to London to face the unbeaten Anthony Joshua remains an intriguing question.

But Martin, who will be making his first defence of the belt that Tyson Fury was forced to relinquish / be stripped, is a confident man, as you would be, knowing you?ve achieved a dream.

However, as you?d suspect, the American fighter isn?t coming here to hand his IBF title to Anthony Joshua on a plate and at the official press conference, held today, to formally announce the fight, Martin had something to say about how he feels the fight will go, with the champion remarking,

?I?ve got dynamite in both hands. TNT, baby. I?m a nice humble guy with an alter-ego, I?m a killer inside the ring.

?I?m not worried or afraid of muscles and big people. I come from the streets in St. Louis, having to fight every day as a kid.?

Is it me or does he sound like he?s straight off the film set of a Rocky movie?
