How Nigerian Anthony Joshua Knocked Out Experienced Klitschko (Photos, Videos)

Anthony Joshua on Saturday night produced a remarkable recovery, to knock out Wladimir Klitschko in the 11th round of an epic heavyweight world title fight at Wembley.

The 27-year-old Nigerian-British appeared to be on the brink of his first defeat since he turned professional, after he was floored in the sixth round. But he produced a dramatic late onslaught to halt Klitschko with one round left.

After 10 rounds, two judges had Joshua ahead, one by 96-93 and one by 95-93, while the other judge had Klitschko 95-93 ahead.

With this victory, Joshua has successfully defended his IBF title, while also claiming the WBA ‘super’ belt.

“What can I say? 19-0, three and a half years in the game. As I said, I’m not perfect but I’m trying and if you don’t take part you’re going to fail.

“As boxing states, you leave your ego at the door and you respect your opponent. So a massive shout out to Wladimir Klitschko,” he told SkySports.
