The Big Fight

Just one month to go before heavyweight boxers Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko battle it out for the IBO and Super heavyweight titles.

This is already being called ‘the biggest fight in British boxing history’ and the two boxers with go head to head at the Wembley Stadium on the 29th of April 2017.

Since the start of Joshua’s professional career he has been undefeated, he has won all of the 18 fights he has had earning him the IBF Heavyweight title. Klitschko has had 68 fights over his career and has only lost 4 fights, it seems his 69th fight with Joshua could go either way. Both boxers are appearing to be well trained and ready to take the title, but only one can.

Joshua competed in the 2012 Olympic games and represent team GB in the boxing ring. He won a gold medal in the games and has been winning ever since, beating opponent after opponent however this time around he may have met his match.

The Nigerian boxer has been training for the past few months in preparation for the fight in April. Joshua broke down his strict regime that he has been sticking to since his last fight with Molina last year. He said “I had 98 days in camp, 420 litres of water. I did 660 rounds of sparring and 210 miles of running” and this is not even half of what he has done to prepare for one the biggest fights of his career thus far.

All the way in the Ukraine Klitschko has been also training hard. The boxer recently turned 41 but with almost 15 years age difference between the boxers, Klitschko is looking to be in good condition. Both boxers took to Instagram to show off the benefits of their training.
