It has taken Joshua’s world title glory from Wembley stadium to New York’s famed Madison Square Garden and even the Middle East.

So narrowing down just five of his best victories would have been no easy feat for AJ.

But ahead of his April 1 return fight with Jermaine Franklin, 29, Joshua, 33, revealed to DAZN his favourite wins.

5. Kevin Johnson – May 30, 2015

“This is the worst out of the bunch, it’s difficult, Kevin Johnson.

“He was a step up at the time, he‘d been in with former world champions who hadn’t been able to take him out.

“Was supposed to go in with him like prospects like myself. He told me he was the antidote.

“When I got there I demolished him in the first round, near enough knocked him out, in the second round took him out completely. That was a good win.”

4. Dillian Whyte,December 12, 2015

“The Dillian Whyte fight for the British title, a very prestigious title in England.

“It wasn’t a tactical fight, but it was a fight where we went through a lot of adversity.

“During those times of trials and tribulations, you can’t prepare for those in the training camp, so this was new to me and probably new to him, and we both put on a really good fight for the fans.

“It showed that the heavyweight division was alive.”

3. Wladimir Klitschko, April 29, 2017

“Looking at my career as it’s gone on, the reason I said number three is that it gave me a lot of valuable experience, when I hit people they normally stay down, but due to Wladimir Klitschko’s experience and his long reign of being champion, when I put him down in the fifth, he knew how to recover. 

“I thought he was done but he is one of the all time greats for a reason, he got back up in the sixth and put me down.

“That was a real learning curve. It gave me a lot of time to let me learn where to go away and improve.”

2. Charles Martin, April 9, 2016

“Charles Martin. After fighting Dillian Whyte [where] I didn‘t show any type of technical boxing.

“In the Dillian Whyte [fight] I displayed a lot of aggression and adrenaline and fighting off instinct. In the Charles Martin fight I wanted to show I’m not just a brawler, I know ring awareness, I know how to step back and counter.

“I know how to beat people without going through treacherous hell.”

1. Andy Ruiz Jr, December 7, 2019

“Saudi Arabia when I boxed Ruiz. It was a really difficult period in my career, I’d lost in June, it wasn’t about Ruiz, it was about being about myself, needing to improve. I have my own reasons for that loss, and I made them right. 

“I went in there with all of the boxing industry saying I should never take a rematch so soon, if I lost I should think about retirement.

“It was so important to put on a masterclass of boxing IQ, execute a strict gameplan, and come back to the drawing board.

“Not only did I have to physically transform myself, but it’s my mental approach as well.”
