Anthony Joshua Takes Out Wladimir Klitschko to Become Boxing's King

Anthony Joshua Takes Out Wladimir Klitschko to Become Boxing's King

Joshua, meanwhile, now boasts a flawless 19-0 record following his win over Klitschko, with all of the 27-year-old's victories coming inside the distance. On the line is Joshua's IBF title, as well as the vacant WBA and IBO belts.

Joshua called out Tyson Fury after his sensational stoppage of Klitschko in front of 90,000 people.

Klitschko bravely got to his feet again, but Joshua then went in for the kill.

The Ukrainian legend kept Joshua at bay with probing jabs in the first and stunned him with a stinging right hand in the fourth.

Parker's trainer believes that a match-up with outspoken British slugger Tony Bellew makes the most sense if the Kiwi can successfully defend his title against Romanian Razvan Cojanu in Auckland next weekend.

The 27-year-old put the experienced 41-year-old former world heavyweight champ on the canvas twice in the 11th round, and a series of heavy blows with Joshua's final lefty before the referee interfered to declare the technical knock-out.

"Fury, Tyson Fury, where you at baby?" "In this small little ring here, there's nowhere to hide".

Most likely a fight between the two could not be possible until very late this year or early next year due to Fury needing to return to fitness, have at least one warm up fight, get his boxing license back in the first place and also address an ongoing situation with UKAD. But the Nigerian-born Briton stormed out for the fifth and floored Klitschko with a brutal barrage of punches.

Commuters have faced major delays for the last several weeks due to infrastructure issues, including track maintenance problems. Construction work at the station will continue past this summer but will switch to a weekend-based schedule, Moorman added.

But Klitschko hit back and pinned Joshua to the ropes to turn the round on its head. "As I said, I'm not flawless but I'm trying and if you don't take part you're going to fail", Joshua said ringside. Anyone can do this, anyone can do it, just give it a go. The Associated Press had it 94-94.

What happens night for the experienced fighter who dominated the division for almost a decade is anyone's guess. Congrats to both for giving the fans something to talk about!

It was anyone's fight when Joshua landed the uppercut that proved decisive, much to the delight of his countrymen who packed England's national stadium for the highly anticipated bout.

With the victory, Joshua moved to 19-0, with all 19 wins coming before the final bell.

Joshua had never been beyond seven rounds, and it looked like he might be running out of gas as he tried to find his legs following the knockdown in the sixth.

Fury has not fought since he beat Klitschko after suffering a number of physical and mental health issues, which saw him forced to give up his belts and his boxing licence, but says he is ready to return to the ring. I was planning to do it but he did more. It didn't work, but all the respect to Anthony.

Fury, 28, is also unbeaten as a professional, with 18 knockouts in 25 fights, but surrendered his world heavyweight titles in an effort to focus on his mental health problems and is now without a boxing licence and out of condition.

"Tyson Fury, I know he has been talking a lot and wants to come back and compete".
