Joshua, with heavyweight title, may make boxing must-see TV

Posted May 03, 2017

The fight between Anthony Joshua and his rival Wladimir Klitschko was a really exciting boxing show.

Tyson Fury has accepted the challenge issued by world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua following the Londoner's title victory over Wladimir Klitschko.

Joshua stopped the Ukrainian in the 11th round of their heavyweight bout at Wembley stadium, securing a victory over the dominant fighter in the division over the past decade.

Klitschko stood, but was again dropped by a left hook moments later, and then stood again, only for referee David Fields to save the challenger when pinned against the ropes.

British-Nigerian boxer, Anthony Oluwafemi Joshua, knocked out former unified champion Wladimir Klitschko in the eleventh round of saturday's title fight in London to retain the IBF World Heavyweight belt and also claim the vacant WBA Heavyweight belt.

With the veteran fighter using his years of ring craft to edge ahead on many pundits' scorecards, time was ticking down for Joshua.

Klitschko suffered his first stoppage defeat since 2004 when he was overwhelmed by Joshua's precision and power in a ferocious 11th-round assault. "Thank you for coming out to a handsome night of boxing".

The 27-year-old began the second confidently and repeatedly found Klitschko with his jab. I will play with you, you are a boxer's dream'.

Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn said that if a rematch were to take place in the United Kingdom later this year, it would likely be at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, which has a roof.

For Klitschko - who perhaps with an extra few punches might have finished Joshua - it could spell retirement, especially after his previous defeat more than a year ago by Britain's Tyson Fury. Joshua said. "Come on - that's what they want to see".

However, he remains active on social media and indicated he wants to return, judging by his reply on Twitter to Joshua's calls from the ring.

The back-and-forth bout saw Joshua knockdown Klitschko in the fifth round, only to suffer the first knockdown of his career in the sixth frame.

Anthony became very good at the sport of boxing very quickly, and had won all 18 fights at amateur level during his early 20s.

"It was really sad I didn't make it tonight", Klitschko said. Klitschko had been knocked down three times against Samuel Peter in their September 2005 fight, but Klitschko won that fight by unanimous decision.

Before last night, Tyson Fury was the last man to beat Klitschko.
