Who is favourite?

Joshua - but only marginally. This will be by far the sternest test of his professional career, with Martin having gone undefeated in 24 fights.

He won the IBF title by stopping Vyacheslav Glazkov in January and, while not in the elite class of heavyweights, he is a canny fighter who could target Joshua's slow feet.

What are the latest odds?

Anthony Joshua 1/5

Charles Martin 7/2

Draw 40/1
