He’s done it. Anthony Joshua has beaten Wladimir Klitschko in what many have been calling the most exciting British fight in years.
In front of an audience of over 90,000 at Wembley Stadium alone, Joshua did just what the bookies expected him to and was able to come out on top in his most challenging bout to date.
The fight came to an end in the 11th round when Joshua, who seemed to be getting beat for the bulk of the fight, hit Klitachko with a huge uppercut, stunning the Ukrainian.
After meeting and greeting the count, Wladimir was hit by a second wave of huge punches before he was knocked down again by AJ.
Despite tonight’s celebrations and no doubt commiserations for the Klitschko camp, what’s next for Anthony Joshua?
Deontay Wilder, Joseph Parker, or maybe even a bout against Tyson Fury who told his fans just yesterday how sorry he is for the past two years in a heartbreaking letter but that he is definitely coming back into the heavyweight world.
Fight Fury Joshua. Christ, Fury fought Klitschko two years ago when he hadn’t lost a fight in 11 years and unanimously destroyed him.
