The biggest heavyweight fight in more than a decade had something for everyone, but in the end, it was Joshua who announced himself as the future of the division. He finally turned things around for good with a right uppercut early in the 11th round that spun Klitschko’s head around. He was all over the Ukrainian and dropped him with a left hook, but Klitschko got up only to take even more punishment. Joshua knocked Klitschko down again and was landing punches to his head on the ropes when referee David Fields moved in to stop the bout late in the 11th round. “When you go to the trenches, that’s when you find out who you really are,” Joshua said. “In this small little ring here, there’s nowhere to hide.” The fight was stopped at 2:25 of the 11th. Joshua was up 96-93 and 95-93 on two scorecards, while Klitschko was ahead, 95-93, on the third. The Associated Press had it 94-94 going into the final round. LONDON (AP): Anthony Joshua survived the first knockdown of his young career, coming back to drop Wladimir Klitschko twice before stopping him in the 11th round on Saturday night to retain his heavyweight titles and stake his claim as the boxing’s next star. Before a boisterous crowd of 90,000 at Wembley Stadium, Joshua, 27, and Klitschko, 41, traded huge punches in a spectacular fifth round and again in the sixth before Joshua finally found a way to finish the long-time former champion late in the fight.

They turn out in their numbers week-in, week-out.“Against Stoke at Elland Road on Sunday, that was certainly one of the best atmospheres I’ve played in.“They’re a credit to the club and a credit to themselves, they pay big money to come and watch us play and the boys, myself and the whole club are very grateful for that.”Listen back to talkSPORT’s interview with Leeds United captain Liam Cooper IN FULL above!
