British heavyweight boxing star Joshua knocks out Klitschko

Posted May 04, 2017

Klitschko is now expected to retire after an illustrious career that will see him installed in the Hall of Fame one day, and his courageous efforts against a man 14 years his junior will have erased the embarrassment of defeat by Fury. I dig deep. It is what it is. Anthony was better today. I feel like it could've been his fight but I guess the better man won on the day. The other two judges - Don Trella and Nelson Vazquez - had Joshua up 96-93 and 95-93, respectively.

What happens night for the experienced fighter who dominated the division for almost a decade is anyone's guess.

Speaking to Radio 5 Live after the fight, Hearn said: "We broke British Box Office records on pay-per-view last night".

"The best man won tonight, and it's an unbelievable event for boxing", Klitschko told Sky Sports after the fight. He finally turned things around for good with a right uppercut early in the 11th round that spun Klitschko's head around.

"What can I say?"

"Whether he feels the same on reflection I don't know".

The British fighter was floored in the sixth round but fought back to drop the Ukrainian with a brutal combination of punches late in the eleventh. "I was planning to do it". "I know he's been talking, I want to give 90,000 a chance to see us".

Plan Constructed to Push Health Bill Forward
Upton said he expects the House Rules Committee to act on the amendment Thursday, paving the way for a vote as soon as then. With Democrats unified against the measure, GOP leaders can only lose about 22 Republicans and still pass the bill.

Fourteen years older than his opponent, he showed why he is one of boxing's most respected and enduring fighters but will go away with the refrain of "what if" ringing in his ears. "It didn't work. But all the respect to Anthony".

Joshua had tipped the scales at 17 stone, 12 pounds 2 ounces (113.4 kilograms) -10 pounds more than Klitschko and his heaviest ever pre-fight weight - at Friday's weigh-in. I have a rematch clause in the contract, which I can execute at certain times, and right now will not be making any decisions. Referee David Fields is about to bring the fighters together for final instructions. I wish I'd been the victor.

"Tyson Fury, where are you at, babe?"

He also congratulated his opponent whom he said doesn't have to fight "but he wants to challenge the young lions of the division".

"It was a great night, great night for boxing, great night for fans and it was an exciting fight, so I'm happy about that and that's what I'm taking with me", Klitschko told the media.

"I wouldn't mind fighting him again; if he wants a rematch no problem".
