Anthony Joshua, reigning IBF champion, added another two titles to his list – the WBA (Super) and the IBO title – after his dramatic win over Wladmir Klitschenko yesterday night.
The pulsating boxing match was watched by over 90,000 spectators; the highest attendance at Wembley for over 80 years. It seemed as if Klitschenko would claim victory, even though he was knocked down on the canvas in the fifth, as the Ukranian produced a stunning display to render Joshua almost defenseless as the latter ended up in the canvas.
However, the British fighter regained composure, and delivered a vicious uppercut at the Ukranian, followed by a devastating left hook which assisted Joshua in claiming one of the biggest victories of his career, as he defeated the Ukrainian via TKO in the 11th round.
The Ukrainian, after the match, sent Joshua a classy message on Twitter, by saying that he “really enjoyed the fight”, and sent his “Respect&congrats” to Joshua, also complimenting the latter on the “amazing support.”
