Joshua, returning to the arena where he knocked out Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko in April, 2017 to become a unified heavyweight world champion, was given a hero's reception by the nearly capacity crowd. I realized he was strong to the head but weak to the body so I was switching it up.

Wilder faces Tyson Fury next on December 1st with location expected to be announced next week at some point.
With Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury set to fight in December, a heavyweight superfight involving the victor and Joshua will hopefully be in place for 2019.
Anthony Joshua stated his eagerness to fight Deontay Wilder at Wembley next April after overcoming a major scare at the London venue to emphatically defeat Alexander Povetkin.
Joshua, 28, had a significant height and reach advantage of several inches over Povetkin.
Yet Joshua has quietly grown from each performance in ways that may not have been fully realized until Saturday when he held off Povetkin's attacking style by boxing from distance and used quick combinations in close to work his way out of trouble. I will start training for a fight in early January.
"We're not willing to wait until December", Hearn said.
Not only did he keep his composure after almost having his nose broken in the opening around against Takam, Joshua avoided getting rattled after blood began to pour from it in the opening round on Saturday against Povetkin.
After an early chess match in which Joshua suffered a bloodied nose before cutting his rival, the Briton grew in confidence and a savage right hand followed by a left hook began an onslaught which would prove telling.
But Joshua, who had a 4-inch height advantage and weighed in almost two stones heavier (246 pounds to Povetkin's 222), made better use of his jab later in the third round.
Povetkin climbed groggily to his feet, Joshua hit with a flurry of punches finishing with another right hand that finally end the fight.
"May the champion bring himself here and have a good old fashioned dust-up". Yet even though all three current champions have their obvious flaws - from Wilder's raw technique to Fury's weight, inactivity and mental state - it's Joshua who seems to absorb the most criticism.
"Dillian deserves it more than Fury because he's been consistent and Wilder because he's the champion".
Povetkin again rocked Joshua with a short left hook in the third round, after he had landed a big overhand right, and the champion looked nervous.
