Anthony Joshua claims he doesn't have a gameplan for his title clash with Oleksandr Usyk this Saturday night.

Joshua will defend his heavyweight titles against Usyk at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with a crowd of 67,000 expected to attend the fight.

Former unified cruiserweight champion Usyk is set for a big step up in competition against Joshua after stopping Chazz Witherspoon and outpointing Derek Chisora in his only heavyweight fights so far.

Joshua - who will have a big size and reach advantage over Usyk - stepped on the scale at today's weigh-ins at 240 lbs whilst Usyk weighed in at a career-high 221 lbs.

And Joshua told Sky Sports after weighing in for the fight that he doesn't have a gameplan.

He said: "There is no game plan. It's win, because you never know what's gonna happen when the first bell goes. My gameplan is to pray and just give it my best.

"That's the best gameplan any man can have is to visualize, pray, meditate on it and give your best. That's my gameplan.

Both Joshua and Usyk have been cordial towards each other in the lead up to the fight, shaking hands after their press conference and taking a selfie with each other after their weigh-in.

And despite fighting in front of his home crowd, Joshua isn't sure of the reception he will get in Tottenham.

He continued: "For me, I don't know what to expect, whether it's going to be boos or cheers. But it's nice that people have come out for a good time, even Usyk got cheers as well.

"It's just a fight, I'm not someone that's gonna be disrespectful unless someone is disrespectful towards me. I respect the man, he's achieved phenomenal things. What more can I say other than good luck to him this weekend.

"People know it's going to be a good night of boxing. As I always say, as long as boxing's winning, we're all winning.

Joshua is hoping a win over Usyk can set up a unification fight with WBC champ Tyson Fury, granted Fury gets past Deontay Wilder next month.

The Brit has admitted an undisputed title fight will complete his legacy but he wants to focus completely on Usyk before thinking about future fights.

He continued: "We're all in 50-50 fights. Me, Usyk, Fury and Wilder.

"Fury makes his first title defence, Wilder comes back off a loss, I'm making a mandatory title defence, I don't personally want to make a statement.

"I want to do what I know I can do personally, whatever people's view of that is is down to them, good luck to Fury and Wilder, let's just keep boxing on people's tongues."
