Wladimir Klitschko Loses To Anthony Joshua in a 11 round encounter on 29 April.
Anthony Joshua, now the Mke Tyson of sorts in the heavyweight division, waded past some very difficult moments but retained his world title by winning a vacant belt to boot — in over enthusiastic fashion.
He did so by knocking out erstwhile world champion Wladimir Klitschko, who was bidding to become a 3-time world champion, in the eleventh round of an epic blowfest on Saturday night before a British-boxing-record crowd of 90k at over-sold Wembley Stadium.
With the fight neck to neck, Anthony Joshua knocked Wladimir Klitschko down 2 times in the eleventh before the referee stopped the fight at the 2:25 mark.Watch Highlights Anthony Joshua Wladimir Klitschko Wembly Stadium
The fight, after a huge pre fight hype had the British public & the boxing world entertained by the biggest heavyweight fight since Lennox Lewis knocked out Mike Tyson to retain the world title way back in 2002.
Joshua was asked many a time if he was ready for this fight and his answer was honest : “I’m not perfect, but I’m trying,” said Joshua, 27, of England. “I got a bit emotional because I know I have doubters. I’m only going to improve. Sometimes you can be a phenomenal boxer, but boxing is about character. When you go into the trenches, that’s when you find out who you really are. I came out, & I won — that’s how far I had to dig. I came back, & I fought my heart out.”
