McCracken will be in his corner on Saturday night, having drawn on his own experience of a big night at Wembley, when he guided Carl Froch to a knockout win over George Groves in 2014.Joshua fought on the undercard then, but his 83-second win over Matt Legg came when the sun was still shining, and before the stadium filled.“My experience there helps,” said McCracken. “I just need to get it across that it is a boxing ring no matter if it is in a huge arena.“AJ is aware of that. He’s already boxed at Wembley, he’s been in the big stadium. It’s a big night and a massive fight. Klitschko will come out as he normally does looking very confident, but it is Anthony’s job to take that confidence away from him.“He’s 41 years of age and that has to show as long as Anthony executes the game plan and does what he is supposed to.”Froch sings a similar tune, describing the Wembley atmosphere as “gladiatorial” – and he must find his own calmness in the maelstrom.Anthony Joshua has been labelled a nasty motherf***** ahead of his fight with Wladimir Klitschko

I loved it and I’m a nervous fighter, but I just relished that.”Joshua has yet to face anyone in the class of Klitschko.The Ukrainian former world champion may be a fading force at 41 and coming off a defeat by Tyson Fury 18 months ago, but he is a world away from the likes of Charles Martin, who Joshua beat to win the title.

Am I good enough?’“When I walked into that crowd at Wembley, I knew I was good enough and I knew I was going to win because I knew I beat him already even though I was ill prepared for the first fight.“Joshua will be thinking, ‘Oh dear, this is it’.
