But the Briton ’ s bout is set to be rescheduled due to the pandemic .
“Wherever you are in the world I’ m just checking in personally for everyone to just say , I hope you were well I will keep it safe , ” Joshua , 30, said on his YouTube channel .
“ I’ ve lost no one immediate to me . But I’ ve lost close ones from my boxing gym , close friends and friends of friends .
And it gets serious when it starts coming closer to home . ”
Joshua , the WBA , IBF , WBO and IBO champion, admitted he is missing his daily routine while he stays in lockdown .
“ I would love to be out there right now doing the most on my dirt bikes , meeting up with my boys , sparring , going down to the boxing gym .
Even a rebel like me is trying to follow some guidelines to do the right thing , ” he said .
