Anthony Joshua Has Defeated Wladimir Klitschko

Anthony Joshua has defeated Wladimir Klitschko in London in front of 90,000 people.

The attendance figures was a post-war record for boxing, making this one of, if not the biggest fight ever.

The majority of those at Wembley were behind the Brit, hoping to see him achieve his 19th victory in professional boxing. Thankfully, he achieved it, knocking out the Ukrainian in the 11th round to retain the IBF, WBA and IBO world heavyweight titles.

This takes AJ's record to 19-0, with all 19 of those victories via K.O.

The noise and atmosphere in Wembley stadium was electric, as Joshua once again used the power of his country's support to secure another emphatic win.

The fifth round in particular was exciting, as AJ sent Mr Steelhammer crashing to the mat, though he replied, knocking AJ down, too.

Prior to the fight very little had gone on in the way of mind games, however earlier in the week Klitschko did bring a memory stick to a press conference saying that he'd recorded his prediction and saved it on the stick. He also claimed Joshua was nothing more than "a puncher".

AJ responded by saying: "When I start punching you in your jaw, you best stand up to the power."

It seems the Ukrainian wasn't quite right, but what was on his memory stick?

Congratulations, AJ.
