Joshua v Wladimir Klitschko: WBA heavyweight Fight sat
29th April 2017
Boxing returns to Wembley Stadium connected by EE in
2017 for a heavyweight bout of titanic proportions.
On Saturday 29 April 2017 Anthony Joshua will face
Wladimir Klitschko under the arch for the IBF, IBO and WBA
Super Heavyweight Championships of the world.
It will be the second time in three years Matchroom Boxing
have partnered with the national stadium to bring boxing to
an enormous stadium audience.
In 2014 a packed house saw Carl Froch knock out George
Groves in a highly anticipated rematch.
Joshua was the opening fight of that memorable night as he
despatched Matt Legg inside a mere 86 seconds.
No doubt the current IBF World Heavyweight Champion
would love a repeat of that performance on 29 April!
Anthony Joshua can add the WBA heavyweight title to his
IBF belt when he fights Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley
Stadium on Saturday.
By contrast, the Ukrainain is aiming to become a three-time
world heavyweight champion in his first return to the ring
since losing his crown to Tyson Fury in November 2015.
Here, we take a statistical look at their career numbers up
until this point…
Anthony Joshua by Numbers:
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.
Wladimir Klitschko by Numbers
68 – Klitschko 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.
78 – the percentage of opponents Klitschko has stopped
inside the distance. He has won 64 of those 68 fights, and
53 via stoppage.
3 – the number of fights in which Klitschko has been
knocked out. Only one of his four defeats – against Tyson
Fury in November 2015 – came on points.
3 – Klitschko held three separate, recognised versions of
the heavyweight title until that defeat: those from the WBA,
WBO and IBF. He has never simultaneously held all four.
The Ukrainian has not returned to the ring since losing his
crown to Tyson Fury in 2015
358 – the total rounds the Ukrainian has boxed as a
professional, which gives him 314 more than the
inexperienced Joshua.
18,240,000 – the value, in pounds, of the winning purse bid
for Klitschko’s fight with Alexander Povetkin, which was held
on 5 October 2013, the same night Joshua made his
professional debut.
18 – Klitschko has made 18 successful defences of a world
heavyweight title. He remains seven shy of the all-time
record held by Joe Louis.
1 – the number of Olympic gold medals won. Klitschko took
his at Atlanta in 1996.
8 – eight of Klitschko’s fights have gone the 12-round
distance. Joshua, in contrast, has never fought beyond the
seventh round.
