Joshua and Klitschko Duel in a Terrific Heavyweight Battle – Wembley Stadium was a fitting scene for a titanic clash of heavyweights between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko.
The results are in and symbolically the baton has been passed from Wladimir Klitschko to Anthony Joshua in a match that saw the veteran former champion go out on his shield as he yielded to the younger man. Both men got up off the canvas at different times to continue fighting and it was Joshua who closed out the deal in the eleventh round, sending Klitschko to the canvas twice before the referee stepped in to save the former champion from Joshua’s final barrage.
