Last weekend, the boxing world held its breath as one of the most highly-anticipated fights got underway at Wembley Stadium. The veteran Ukrainian mountain Wladimir Klitschko went up against the Watford-born Anthony Joshua for the WBA, IBF and IBO heavyweight titles, and for a lot of people, it was too close to call. The fight reflected the similar skill level of these heavyweight fighters, as Joshua and Klitschko went all the way to 11 rounds before the fight was stopped, and Anthony Joshua was declared the victor with his 19th win (and knockout) in a row.
At the age of 41, Klitschko has been around for a long time, and has been monitoring Joshua’s career since he was a young Olympic medallist back in 2012. There’s a lot of respect between the two fighters, but after the bout, Anthony Joshua revealed exactly what he said to Wladimir Klitschko just before the fight was brought to an end.
