Olympic Gold medallist Anthony Joshua MBE was declared fit to fight this week by a Sheffield optician.

The big fight is looming
Joshua, who trains at the English Institute of Sport in Sheffield, dropped into Specsavers on Pinstone Street to have his eyes tested ahead of his big fight against Eric Molina tomorrow.

Fit to fight
The boxer spent time meeting and greeting the Sheffield Specsavers team before going through to a testing room, where opthalmic director Paul McGinty performed a thorough eye examination and declared Joshua ready to face his rival at Manchester Arena.

A gentle giant
Store manager Anita Harrison said: 'Anthony was a delight to meet, he was a real gentle giant. We were so pleased that he picked our store to check that his eyesight is in tip top condition ahead of his big fight.

'We wish him the best of luck for the fight and we will all be watching and cheering him on this Saturday night.'
