LONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 7 – Anthony Joshua admits he needs to keep fans on his side to set up a Wembley showdown with Wladimir Klitschko.

The IBF heavyweight world champion defends his title against Eric Molina at the Manchester Arena on Saturday, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Klitschko, who will be working ringside, has already said he is more than happy to head to the national stadium and face the Brit at the end of April, in a possible unification fight.

The fight is yet to be confirmed but with Wembley on the horizon, north London’s Joshua will continue to build his growing fan-base to fill the 80,000 capacity.

“It makes sense but you’d have to be able to predict if it will sell though,” he told Sky Sports when asked about fighting in the famous stadium.

“There’s no point in going to Wembley for no reason with the size of the stadium, but I just hope it will┬ásell out, so it’ll be no problem.

“They only love you when you’re winning, so I’ve got to keep on winning. To sell-out Wembley you have to be a winner.”

Joshua has already boxed at Wembley Stadium, stopping Matt Legg inside the first round on the undercard of Froch v Groves II, in May 2014.
