Video: David Haye Rips Briggs, Talks Fury, Joshua-Martin

LONDON – IBF Heavyweight World Champion Charles Martin and unbeaten British Olympic Gold Medalist Anthony Joshua faced off at the final press conference on Thursday at Four Seasons Hotel in London as they near Saturday’s heavyweight showdown, live on SHOWTIME from The O2.

The SHOWTIME BOXING INTERNATIONAL® telecast begins live at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT on SHOWTIME.  An encore presentation will air on SHOWTIME EXTREME® at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Here’s what Martin and Joshua had to say at Thursday’s final press conference.

CHARLES MARTIN:

“I don’t consider this a risk. The O2 Arena, that’s my arena. I’m comfortable everywhere I go.  When eyes are on me, I’m going to perform.

“I know how to move my head and be evasive.  Real true analysts see the things I do. They can tell.

“I’m always here to prove the doubters wrong. When you doubt me, that just fuels my fire.

“We’re going to keep the tide rolling.  We’re rolling.”

ANTHONY JOSHUA:

"They know when it comes to these big heavy-hitters we don't play games. We're here to go to war.  We've just got two generals in the ring and the best army wins.

"You know what I'm like, I'm a fighter. I'm not going to go in there and dance around and try to evade punches. I'm going to walk through two to give him five. That's just how it goes, I'm coming for him.

"I'm here to box, but at the same time I know I'm ready to swim through deep waters to get it.  It's not going to be easy, I know that for a fact, no fight is easy. That's why I said to you I will box and hopefully it will be an easy night.

"It most definitely is a risk, but at the same time let's scrap all this 15-fight, 16-fight nonsense and let's put men in the ring together who want it. Whoever wants it comes out on top and it's simple as that.”

When asked if he can control his emotions: “Probably not. I'll probably go out and try to take his head off.”
