Rtl Klitschko Vs Joshua VideoAnthony Joshua v Wladimir Klitschko - Full Fight! - 29th April 2017
R d 2 Fascinating again. Joshua desperate to let right hand go. But patient and very smart so far. Better from Klitschko, using the jab but Joshua rallies strongly and hits a rapid right overhand.
Klitschko using his geometry to slip away. Has some sap in his legs too, Klitschko. Joshua fires a right but is out of range.
A couple of rights connect followed by a left. Good body shot for Joshua. Nothing from cagey Klitschko, Joshua similarly conservative.
Real battle as they both try to establish dominance of the jab. Better work from AJ. No right hands from Klitschko - yet. T he bell and Klitschko in grey advances on Joshua in white trunks.
B uffer, that is G areth is ringside and is hugely impressed:. It feels huge, so huge in here. Both pacing around inside the ring.
C losed my eyes I think AJ will try to establish his jab to be faster than WK in the first and then get more bullish in the second. It will never be the same if he loses.
It will be Sweet Caroline too in mo K litschko has been accustomed to controlling fights. Joshua will not want to let him, and will look for a steady assault from late in the second round onwards.
If the home favourite has not hurt, or stopped, Klitschko by round seven, the youngster could get manned out of the fight by the wizened old ways of Klitschko.
We cannot rule that out, but I do not see it. For me, Joshua stops Klitschko inside five rounds, his vim, vigour, explosiveness and youth proving too much for the old legs of Klitschko.
Joe Cordina, rather too easily for the matchmaking business, Katie Taylor was stretched a little more and looked scrappy at times, Luke Campbell grew into the fight and wore Perez down with guile and class while Scott Quigg slugged it out and used his superior power to win in unanimously on points.
Or to be more precise the minute build-up to the main event. P lay Telegraph Predictor: A mazing sporting occasion and real sense of a special moment here, the sun is down the neon has taken over and there is almost a distracted hubbub in this near full stadium as we await the arrival of Joshua and Klitschko.
These are the die hard boxing fans and the hipster chattering classes on a great night out. Massive massive cheer when the jumbotron screens above the ring showed AJ with Rob McCracken having his hands wrapped in the dressing room.
The ex champion could be out here mins before that first bell. He ll need to stay warm. W ins by unanimous decision, by six points on two cards and two on the third.
Simion has stones of stone but Quigg will get the verdict, surely. Q uigg showing his doggedness and strength again even though he continues to be caught by the spirited Simion.
I f this goes the distance then it will take us past Quigg is taking some shots on the back foot and the sages on social media think this is why Lee Selby will beat him convincingly next up.
S imion is caught twice in this mano a mano contest. Quigg lands a low one accidentally and is forgiven by referee and opponent. This scrap is getting scrappier by the round.
B oth look beaten-up and Quigg is bleeding behind his left ear but a sequence of spiteful left hooks must take their toll on Simion.
Fighting not boxing but a remarkable spectacle. C arl Froch wonders if Simion lacks the power to end this for all his qualities of resilience.
Quigg has started to gain ground with heavier shots. S imion has a crafty knack of dipping his shoulders to evade blows. Quigg has discovered more precision now with a series of malignant body shots.
Simion had the better defence but then takes a vicious right to the left cheek. He counters forcefully, though, and elicits a slip from his opponent.
This is some scrap. I feel wiser and more confident. The only nerves are to perform. Round by round I shall get a victory.
Q uigg has the shortest shorts of the night, he throws a left and leaves his chin open for a Simion left hook. Simion is a tenacious so and so and the effect is two terriers going for it straight from the off.
Quigg goes for body shots. This is something of a tear-up already. Simion won that comfortably. Scenes from Wembley lennoxlewis getting mobbed -- slowly filling up here -- Campbell created bit of excitement then too JoshuaKlitschko pic.
E xcellent comeback from Campbell after a testing first three rounds. Perez walks away after a long spell of Campbell targeting the body. After that praise for him as a warrior, Perez pulls out.
After a word from the ref he advances but Campbell closes off the ring and Perez calls off the fight, claiming his left arm is injured, on the inside of his elbow.
The former world champ looks seriously hacked off when he wobbles from a stinging right cross. Campbell firmly in control now.
Perez wobbles but regains his balance and comes back determinedly with really venomous shots to the body.
Very good round that. Better round for Campbell. Campbell then clips him with a right hook. No doubt Perez has found the target with more precision in the opener.
A nd his stop and chat with the Real Deal:. AnthonyfJoshua has arrived at Wembley! Perez, of course, did not make weight yesterday so winning guarantees him nish.
T ell us which fighter you expect to win the fight and how. A nd hugs Evander Holyfield as he walks to his dressing room.
Carl Froch is ringside, back at the scene of his disabusing of the doubters. H e concludes that Taylor was so dominant and Meinke, brusied, had lost every round.
She was stuck in a neutral corner and failing to parry or avoid a series of combinations. So Taylor is now the WBA international lightweight champion.
Still think Katie Taylor could ave won a world title on her debut. M einke comes out for the third without her gumshield, smiles when she realises and goes to fetch it.
Taylor uses her power to wriggle out of the attempted headlock and land some quick combos on the inside then impressively slips a hook when they separate before firing two accurate lefts.
M einke is very keen on holding when against the ropes but dances into the open ring, trying a couple of big shots.
Her eye is starting to swell and she is hit by a steely left and right that causes her to stumble. The Irishwoman won the Olympic lightweight gold at London As a fight correspondent I really do adore and savour these nights The Young Pretender to the heavyweight throne has been relaxed all the way A nd the knitted event merchandise is as ubiquitous as ever.
Are you blue or are you red? M eanwhile, a word from the last man to win a world heavyweight title belt at the old Wembley:. Its your turn make us proud as a nation.
W ho is going to be walking away from Wembley triple-belted tonight? Boxing is a sport of self-control. You must understand fear so you can manipulate it.
Fear is like fire. Let it go out of control and it can hurt you, even kill you … fear is a friend of exceptional people.
In Young Stribling defeated Phil Scott. There will be 90,, mainly partisan home fans at Wembley Stadium for the fight who will be fizzing with eager anticipation for Michael Buffer to take the microphone for the main event.
