Anthony Joshua shared 35 seconds of workout footage with his Twitter followers on Saturday
IBF world heavyweight champion Joshua, 28, looked sharp seven days before his title defence
Joshua will fight Carlos Takam (pictured) in Cardiff on October 28 after Kubrat Pulev pulled out
He looked ready for Takam as he was put through his paces in the ring by one of his coaches
He signed off from social media for a short time by accompanying the footage with the message: ‘Brb, family time. Enjoy the weekend!’
Joshua only discovered that he would be fighting Takam this week, after his original opponent Kubrat Pulev pulled out with a shoulder injury.
Such a late change has the potential to unsettle any fighter but Joshua remains a huge favourite to retain his belt in Cardiff on October 28.
The 19-0 Brit is heavily odds-on to beat 36-year-old Cameroonian Takam, with a knockout victory expected, likely inside six rounds.
But Takam has only lost three of his 39 professional fights, drawing one, with 27 of his 35 wins coming by KO.
The video – captioned ‘Brb, family time. Enjoy the weekend!’ – began with Joshua skipping
Joshua was then seen shadow boxing, throwing fast punch combinations with his right and left
The video also showed Joshua working a large punching bag, which his coach held in place
The coach was Rob McCracken, who led the British boxing team at the London 2012 Olympics
