British campaign wins heavyweight showdown at Wembley Stadium
Undefeated British fighter Anthony Joshua has beaten Ukrainian Wladimir Klitschko in their world heavyweight title fight at Wembley

British champ Joshua was defending his IBF, WBA and IBO world heavyweight titles in front of 90,000 fans.

Ukrainian fighter Klitschko has not boxed since he lost his heavyweight crown to Tyson Fury 18 months ago but the 41-year-old rolled back the years with a gutsy performance.

The best man won tonight. It was an amazing event who fought each other.

After the fight, the Russian said:

“Anthony was better today than I, it’s really sad that I didn’t make it tonight. I was planning to do it but it didn’t work.

“All the respect to Anthony. I enjoyed the night. I wish I could’ve raised my hand. He got up and fought back to win the titles.”

Joshua was born in Watford to a Nigerian mother and a British father of Nigerian and Irish descent. His cousin is fellow unbeaten professional boxer Ben lleyemi. The pair made their professional debuts together in 2013.

Joshua grew up for some of his early years in Nigeria and returned to the UK halfway through Year Seven to join Kings Langley Secondary School. Growing up on the Meriden Estate in Garston, Hertfordshire, Joshua was called ‘Femi’ by his friends and former teachers, due to his middle name ‘Oluwafemi’. He excelled at football and athletics and broke the Year Nine 100m record with a time of 11.6 seconds
