Anthony Joshua ko v Wladimir Klitschko

Boxing - Heavyweight - 29 Apr 22:00

The closer this one gets the more confident I am that Joshua will win. If the fight goes the distance then something has gone wrong. If AJ is landing enough to win a decision then he's landing enough to put old man Klitschko away. On paper this looks like a tough fight, but for me I think this will be less of a passing of the torch and more an extinguishing of the flame. Joshua will want to stamp all over Klitschko and show the world he really is far and away the best heavyweight out there.

Klitschko won't get his usual referee favours in London, so his speciality of grabbing and pushing down his opponent should hopefully be non-existent. He's also never been a one punch ko artist. When he stops someone it's usually after he's systematically jabbed them into submission. I see him having to take more risks than usual, which will leave him open to more shots. He won't enjoy physical advantages in any department in this one. He trains like a champion should do, but you can't train away the years and he is 41 after all, hasn't fought for a year and a half and hasn't won a fight in 2 years. The last fight he had, against Tysn Fury, showed that he either isn't any good against a good big man or that he is shot. Either way, he'll be in trouble against Joshua. He won't have experienced anything like the power that AJ will be landing on him and his chin has never been great. He's protected it well since Sam Peters repeatedly floored him 12 years ago. Joshua has 18 wins, 18 ko's. He's never been past the 7th round.

I see a cagey start for the first 3-4 rounds. Once Joshua has worked out his best form of attack the ending could come at any time. At a guess I would say 8 rounds.
