ANTHONY JOSHUA can add the WBA heavyweight title to his IBF belt when he fights Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.
Here, we take a statistical look at his promising career.
18 – Joshua has had only 18 professional fights, yet is the favourite to beat one of the finest heavyweight champions in history.
18 – he has stopped all 18 of his professional opponents inside the distance, giving him a 100 per cent knockout record.
3 – the number of world heavyweight title fights he has been involved in – against Charles Martin, Dominic Breazeale, and Eric Molina, all of America.
3 – the number of recognised professional titles Joshua has won. He is the reigning IBF heavyweight champion, and once held both the British and Commonwealth titles.
5 – five of Joshua’s 18 opponents were stopped inside a round. Emanuele Leo, Hector Alfredo Avila, Matt Legg, Michael Sprott and Gary Cornish were all unable to survive even three minutes with him.
7 – the highest number of rounds any of Joshua’s fights have lasted. First Dillian Whyte and then Breazeale proved his most resilient opponents.
7 – Joshua’s age in years when Klitschko made his professional debut, in November 1996 against Fabian Meza. The Briton was six when Klitschko won Olympic gold at Atlanta ’96.
1 – Olympic gold medals won. Joshua’s came at London 2012.
44 – the number of rounds he has boxed as a professional. Klitschko surpasses that in his five most recent fights alone.
90,000 – the number of spectators expected to attend Saturday’s fight, a post-war record for a boxing event in the UK.
