Froch-Groves II: Anthony Joshua Faces Matt Legg

Anthony Joshua MBE will face Matt Legg on the undercard of Carl Froch’s IBF and WBA World Super Middleweight title rematch on May 31 at Wembley Stadium connected by EE, live on Sky Sports Box Office in association with Betway.

Olympic Gold medal hero Joshua boxes for the sixth time as a professional and is aiming to take his KO record to six out of six with them all inside the first two rounds.

Legg will have something to say about that as he grabs a golden opportunity to perform on the biggest stage in British boxing history, as the Milton Keynes man looks to cause an upset and comes into the fight on the back of second round KO win of his own in April following his clash with former World champion James Toney in Prizefighter in November.

“I can’t wait to box at Wembley on May 31, it’s going to be an unbelievable experience,” said Joshua. “To box at the national stadium on a bill of this magnitude is a real honour and I plan to kick the night off with a bang against Matt. I know he will want to put on a show on such a huge occasion but I will be looking to add another big KO to my collection.”

Joshua’s clash with Legg is part of a historic night of action at Wembley ahead of Froch’s grudge match with Groves.

Anthony’s fellow Gold medallist James DeGale MBE meets Brandon Gonzales in a final eliminator for the IBF Super Middleweight crown while Jamie McDonnell tackles Tabtimdaeng Na Rachawat for the vacant WBA Bantamweight title and Kevin Mitchell meets Ghislain Maduma in a final eliminator for the IBF Lightweight title.

Don't know anything about him tbh! Hopefully he is half decent and makes for a decent fight. But at least Kevin Mitchell is not having a rematch against that Georgian bloke..

Pointless fight. Definitely hoped for better If your gonna get sh*te opponents in at least try make em durable.

:rofl: isn't this opponent the guy who lost in the first round of prizefighter to James 'punch-drunk' Tony? Anthony Joshua needs to actually go some rounds before he has to step up otherwise we will have another david price situation…
