Tomorrow night, Saturday 29th, Anthony Joshua is set to take on Wladimir Klitschko in the IBF heavyweight world title deciding contest at the home of football, Wembley Stadium, London.
Only the second boxing event to be staged at the national football stadium after Carl Froch knocked out George Groves in the pair’s rematch in May 2014, this match promises to be a unforgettable showdown.
The pair will go toe-to-toe on this box office big fight in front of an expected crowd of 90,000 boxing fans, a post-war record for a fight in the UK. This momentous evening could define both fighters’ careers, Klitschko will provide Joshua with his biggest test yet.
