On the eve of the Wembley Wladimir Klitschko and Anthony Joshua gave possibly the best heavyweight title fight since the memorable battle between Lennox Lewis and Vitali Klitschko.
Two Olympic Champions were worthy of each other – 41-year-old Klitschko showed amazing courage, after a knockdown in the fifth round, but did not use his chance in the next round when Joshua survived the crisis, regained strength and made a decisive assault in the 11th round.
At the time of stopping the fight by split decision, the leader was Anthony Joshua, to whom this victory has allowed to become the owner of three championship belts – the IBF, IBO and “super champion” by the WBA.
