Anthony Joshua: Returns after minor injury setback

Sky Bet

Anthony Joshua is fit and raring to go ahead of his next fight against Dorian Darch in London on December 14.

The Olympic champion missed an intended outing on the Froch-Groves undercard after being troubled by an arm/shoulder injury.

However, the issue was not a serious one and the promising heavyweight is looking forward to his fourth fight in 10 weeks.

"I'm at the start of a fresh new chapter...the Olympics was amazing but it's in the past," said the 23-year-old. "I am loving life in the pro ranks and learning every day.

"Dorian is a tough test for just my fourth fight and he'll want to make a name for himself, as all my opponents do.

"I am grounded, I am focused and I am taking every fight very seriously. It's vital that I keep winning and keep learning because one lapse of concentration in the ring could be disastrous."

Joshua's return to the ExCeL Arena in East London is part of a huge night of boxing on Sky Sports.

The stacked card features 15 fights with former world lightweight title challenger Kevin Mitchell facing Italian Brunet Zamora for the vacant IBF Inter-Continental title.

Recent world welterweight challenger Lee Purdy aims to take the European title from Italian Leonard Bundu, while there are also outings for Jamie McDonnell and Anthony Ogogo.
