Another big fighting happening on 29th April!

Tempted to say Joshua will win but you never know. Klitschko is getting a bit old I don't know if he has the stamina to go toe to toe for 12 rounds.

Either way going to be a good watch.

Its the power of AJ. Everyone he has come up against has been made to look ordinary. Having said that I think Klitschko must be thinking he'll retire if he loses so he will have been training very hard for this and probably has a lot of motivation for the fight.

Would still put my money on AJ though.

I'd put my money on Klitschko. lol

Before Fury, VK was the man to beat, now all of a sudden, he's done. Boxing is like that!

He's got the jab to keep AJ away and has power so will be a massive test for AJ!

Not long before the big fight... Genuinely not sure how this will go.

Hoping atleast 10 rounds before a KO to either corner.

Wow so some quick rounds there but I'm sure Klitschko could go all the way. Have you seen his nose? That guy must have taken a massive beating over the years. AJ is young and poweful but Klitschko definitely will be more of a strategic boxer.

Either way I'm glad heavy weight boxing is being represented in UK again.

I would expect Klitschko to try and stay behind that piston jab of his while he looks for openings.
Was watching a few things about them last night in the build up and they both obviously looked determined and Klitschko sounds like he is really enjoying the training and build up and has said he's enjoying being the under dog. This may well have revitalised him and as I've mentioned if he gets beat then he must seriously be thinking of retiring so this may be his last hoo-ra!!

Its good for boxing and the fans to genuinely not know 100% how this will go.

I must be the only one thinking klit will weather the first 6-7 rounds and then knock AJ out !

Still a question mark for me on Aj's chin. Let hope hes not the new Bruno.

It's Klitschko for me ,even at 41 he is still one of the top heavyweights ,i think he will have too much experience for Joshua who is unproven over 8 rounds and despite having good handspeed he has really poor head movement and Klitschko will pick him off with the jab and win on points for me.

Anthony Joshua stops Wladimir Klitschko in the 11th round at Wembley
Anthony Joshua produced the performance of his career to add the WBA world heavyweight title to his IBF crown with an enthralling knockout win over Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium.

A post-war record 90,000 fans at the national stadium were treated to a see-saw contest, Joshua dropping the former unified world champion in the fifth round, before being put down - for the first time in his 19-fight career - in the sixth.

It was a great fight and aj did well to get on the canvas and and ride the storm and eventually finish the fight in style.

Thought this was a really good fight. Glad it wasn't over in a couple of rounds and it could have went either way until the 11th.
Think both fighters can hold there heads high. Obviously AJ's a little higher :)

Apparently 2 weeks and they'll be a decision whether the rematch will happen which would be in the Autumn.
Surely this has got to be a yes because of the amount of money involved.
Would imagine the rematch would be in America as well to generate the extra money for the fight.
