Anthony Joshua Vs Wladimir Klitschko : IBF, IBO and WBA Super Heavyweight Championship Fight

Scheduled For 29/4/2017

Anthony Joshua is now is Unbeaten in 18 games since he became professional in 2013 but will have to face this tough test as he looks to step up his Career in professional Boxing against Wladimir Klitschko who is now 41 and had won 64 Boxing matches with only 4 losses ruling the Heavyweight Boxing world for over a decade till he lost to Tyson Fury in November 2015.

The Ukrainian hasn't fought since he lost to Fury but his opponents feels his age is not on his side and expects him to have his first Back to back losses saying

"He has to pass on the baton. I do hear it a lot, he's too old, he's faded," Joshua, 27, told BBC Radio 5 live.
"But then I try and flip it. Even if he is too old, which I think he is, he's in a good place mentally and that's a dangerous fighter.Timing is everything and maybe Father Time has caught up with the former champ."
"I am a completely different person now. I'm at a place now where he's obsessed with beating me and I'm confident. I'm not a gym fighter. If I'm depending on his age and he's depending on the sparring from years ago then he will definitely get it wrong.
"He's got to come across a young lion who studies the game.
"Whatever type of fight he wants to fight, if it goes down the route of us two swinging until the cows come home, I don't think I will back out. My obligation first and foremost is to make him look like a novice."

Rob McCracken, who has been training the youngster since his early years says, His age is what his team capitalized on to fix the Match with Ukrainian.
"I'd be a liar if I said it wasn't the case. I think the last couple of fights he hasn't looked at his best," said McCracken.
"Timing is huge in boxing. Klitschko is coming to the end of his reign as a heavyweight on the planet.
"We are rolling the dice with Anthony in this situation. It's a huge step up in terms of experience and the calibre of the opponent but we think the timing is right."

The Match which is set to hold on the 29th of April at the Wembly Stadium will be the second time in three years since Matchroom Boxing have partnered with the national stadium to bring boxing to an enormous stadium audience.
