Klitschko: I enjoyed fighting Joshua
Heavyweight boxer Wladimir Klitschko has revealed he really enjoyed the fight against Anthony Joshua in the stunning world heavyweight title bout at Wembley on Saturday April 29.
Klitschko was defeated by the Nigerian-born British heavyweight boxer.
Both men suffered knockdowns early in the fight before recovering to take an epic contest to the 11th round, when the British fighter came out on top.
Making the third defence of his IBF title, Joshua also became the WBA champion after recovering from the first knockdown of his career to impressively win at Wembley Stadium.
Joshua recovered, though, and after several even rounds he went on the offensive from the opening bell of the 11th. An uppercut sent Klitschko to the canvas once more and though the Ukrainian beat the count, a flurry of punches saw the referee step in and stop the fight.
After the bout, Klitschko tweeted: “Really enjoyed the fight, I hope you did too. Thank you for your amazing support. I can truly feel it. Respect & congrats to @anthonyfjoshua”
