Join us on Saturday 29th April 2017 from 6.30pm as Anthony Joshua faces his sternest opponent yet - two-time world heavyweight champion, Wladimir Klitschko at the Wembley arch for the IBF, IBO and WBA Super Heavyweight Championships of the world.

Billed as the heavyweight fight of the year, Wladimir Klitschko who has been inactive for the last 14 months is seeking to reclaim his world champion status but not one to give him that title easily is current IBF heavyweight champion and Olympics Gold medallist, Anthony Joshua. Joshua who boasts an impressive track record of 18 fights won by knockout and 0 lost is presently the bookies favourite but Klitschko who has a decade of experience in the ring may stand victorious if he is to give it his all.

Anthony Joshua commented “This fight will be one of the biggest nights in my boxing career, it marks the highest point of my climb through the professional ranks. It is three years since I turned professional, I have taken the time to gain experience, fight men who have fallen and some who have fought hard and through this I am learning my trade, how the business works and gaining the ring craft which is sometimes underestimated as everyone wants to see the mega fights right away.

It is the perfect time for me to move up another step and contest my heavyweight championship belt against one of the legends of our sport. There is no doubt this will be a titanic battle with a huge amount on the line, just like every fight, but when I enter the ring I will be prepared for victory as I have been with all my other fights. The legend against the champ – it’s time to write history.

Wladimir Klitschko added “I’m looking forward to this fight of the year, just like boxing fans all around the world. This is the first time in a decade that I’m the challenger again. I will fight against a champion who I consider the best of the young generation. Basically, the experience will take on youth. This makes this fight that unique. I will be ready for the challenge!
