Anthony Joshua stops Wladimir Klitschko with a knockout at Wembley

03 May 2017

"In this small little ring here, there's nowhere to hide".

On the undercard is IBF featherweight champion Scott Quigg (35-1-2, 24 KOs) of Greater Manchester taking on Romanian Viorel Simion (21-1, 9 KOs).

"I took rounds upon rounds of experience, and I can move forward now on to bigger and better things". The Associated Press had it 94-94 going into the final round.

In fairness, it was hard not to be caught up in the moment, after what had been the best heavyweight fight in years.

Fury had earlier tweeted to Joshua congratulating him on the victory and appearing to indicate he was keen on fighting his compatriot. I don't fear anybody and I'm not scared to go to anybody's house.

Maybe he had a few quid on Joshua ending the bout in the 11th round, or he just got the flawless shot of the dramatic moment. "As I said, I'm not flawless but I'm trying and if you don't take part you're going to fail", said Joshua who was put on the canvas for the first time in his career in the sixth round of the see-saw battle. "When you go to the trenches, that's when you find out who you really are". The pair battled deep into the fight, with Joshua landing a vicious uppercut in the 11th round to earn his second knockdown of the bout.

Former heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis said: "Crackin' Fight!" It's really sad I didn't make it tonight.

"I tried to recover and then step it up in the later rounds, that was the plan". But congratulations to Anthony, he got up, he fought back, and he won the titles.

Bayern Munich wins fifth consecutive Bundesliga title
Bayern have three more games remaining in what will, from this point forward, be the Philipp Lahm and Xabi Alonso farewell tour. He has claimed every major honour with Bayern - notably winning the 2013 Champions League as well as the German Cup six times.

In the process of claiming the biggest win of his career, Joshua showed wonderful resilience, and this was, by far, his most impressive performance. Already a hero in his native England, he may become one worldwide as he continues to advance his career at a rapid pace. He came to show what he was about, that he still had it.

Joshua could not stop smiling when he appeared in the press conference nearly two hours after his triumph and revealed what he was saying to Klitschko during the fight. Though he made it to his feet, Joshua immediately pounced and referee David Fields stepped in and called the fight.

Klitschko got up but was on unsteady legs and began swinging wildly.

"The best man won tonight, and it's an awesome event for boxing", Klitschko told Sky Sports after the fight.
