(Boxing) Anthony Joshua Vs Wladimir Klitschko : Why This Will Be A 50/50 Fight

Everyone is gearing up for the fight between Anthony Joshua and  Wladimir Klitschko, scheduled to hold on the 29th of april but only few have been able to compare their differences and similarities, also how each will affect the outcome of this great clash. I will take my time now to analyze them one after the other also including how each of this could affect the result.

1 Age And Power

Anthony Joshua (27) will have this advantage as his age will influence his Power And speed in movement around the ring, which has seen him knockout all his opponents in his 18 bouts as compared to Wladimir Klitschko (40), who will be depending on his Power and Defenses, as he was ones the most defensive Boxer in the planet (pound for pound)

Klitschko will be in the knowledge if how much power the young boy has and will be conscious as ever, as the boy has as much power to knock him out as he has done in his past 18 fights.

2. Experience

Wladimir Klitschko beats the his young opponent to a large extent on this one, his experience stretching out since 1990's starting from his Amateur Boxing Career which had been also full of mind blowing records and at the time Joshua came into professional Boxing (2013), Klitschko was the Most defensive fighter in the world of Boxing. 

The youngster has only 44 rounds in the ring in his 18 bouts  while Klitschko has had 400 rounds of experience winning 368 of those rounds in 68 bouts, 28 heavyweight title fights more than any other Heavyweight Champion in Boxing history. Surpassing him with a library of experience

3. Wins And Knockouts

It is known that Anthony Joshua has never tested defeat and has gone through 18 games without defeat with all of them ending in knock outs, giving him a 100% knock out rate but if you look at the Boxing Legend, who rolls with 64 wins- 4 defeats with 53 of them Knock Outs, you will discover the Ukrainian has seen many fights like this and has also defeated many undefeated personalities like Anthony Joshua in the past, which also includes his win over the then Undefeated Sultan Ibragimov in 2008.

Anthony Joshua is taking on the biggest fight of his life and none of his past opponents hold a record as big as that of Wladimir Klitschko who has 78% knock out rate and so much has power in his hands.

4 Rounds They Can Persistently Fight

Wladimir Klitschko is strong in the ring and has gone past the seventh round in eleven of his last 15 fights of which seven ended in knock-outs but the Brit has never gone past the seventh and has only twice gone past the third round which is a sign of how much power he possesses but for how long can he keep up giving out that much power without getting worn out by Klitschko's fitness and persistence.

5 Losses and Comebacks

So many will count this, an unnecessary thing to consider in the fight but many will agree that throughout Joshua's Career, they haven't seen him wear out on the ring or Made a comeback to win a fight. Hence, the Uncertainty still lies deep as to how Joshua will deal with a much powerful opponent.
Obviously we have seen Klitschko in his four losses and we have seen him comeback to win despite his weakness and power of his opponent against all odds.

6 Time Off The Ring (Ring Rust)

This will be very influencing when this fight begins and it will definitely be in favour of the British Boy, who has fought four fights since the last time Wladimir Klitschko stepped his foot in the ring, which was his defeat to Tyson Fury in November 2015 spanning 17 months
