JOSHUA KNOCKS OUT KLITSCHKO AT WEMBLEY

British boxer Anthony Joshua, AJ as fondly called, proved his doubters wrong as he knocked out Russian long time heavy weight champ Wladimir Klitschko in front of 90,000 fans at Wembley.


The 27-year old added the WBA title to his IBF title after stopping his opponent in the 11th round.

The younger fighter was knocked down in the sixth round but he returned to continue, a thing that would trouble the WBC champion Deontay Wilder who sat at ringside. AJ fought hard to bring the fight to a dramatic conclusion – what makes fans go wild.

The Ukrainian champ Klitschko had the experience after 68 fights in an 11-year period but the youthful and promising AJ was not deterred. A single uppercut in the 11th round that left Klitschko dazed was the game changer. Soon after a left hook and a right slowed the fighter and then Joshua expertly went for the kill.

“Massive respect to Klitschko. He’s a role model in and out of the ring and I’ve got nothing but love and respect for anyone who steps in the ring. London, I love you. Can I go home now,” AJ said after the fight and the response was deafening. Read more »
