With both the WBA and IBF heavyweight titles up for grabs for Anthony Joshua, it could all go down to numbers

ANTHONY JOSHUA can add the WBA heavyweight title to his IBF belt when he fights Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium on Saturday. But Klitschko will be aiming to become a three-time world heavyweight champion when he steps in the ring.

 

The Ukrainian has had 68 professional fights, which is already over a third more than the fighter widely considered to have preceded him as the world’s leading heavyweight, Lennox Lewis.

And yet it’s Briton Joshua who is favourite to win, despite only having 18 professional fights under his belt.
