Stormzy, Notorious B.I.G. and James Brown… The songs Anthony Joshua listened to ahead of his fight with Wladimir Klitschko
I had a chat with Dr Dre last night, not something you say every day. We designed a pair of headphones together for Beats, which is crazy.
I’ve been working on a playlist ready for the dressing room — a bit of Stormzy, some Notorious B.I.G. and James Brown… I like to mix it up.
You need some tunes to relax to when you get there but then you are looking to get sharp and switch on, too.
I always leave it late to pick my ring-walk music, sometimes something new comes up or I hear a blast from the past that I think fits nicely. I like to put on a show with my entrances.
