How Anthony Joshua knocked out Vladmir Klitscko

Anthony Joshua has knocked down Ukranian Vladmir Klitschko to become the IBF and WBA champion.

The stunning world heavyweight title fight at Wembley Stadium, London saw both men suffering knockdowns early in the fight before recovering to take an epic contest to the 11th round, when the British-Nigerian fighter came out on top.

Making the third defence of his IBF title, Joshua also became the WBA champion after recovering from the first knockdown of his career to impressively win at the Wembley.

Klitschko was initially knocked down early in the fifth round but got off the canvas and had the younger man in desperate trouble in the sixth, knocking Joshua down for an eight count.

Joshua recovered, though, and after several even rounds he went on the offensive from the opening bell of the 11th. An uppercut sent Klitschko to the canvas once more and though the Ukrainian beat the count, a flurry of punches saw the referee step in and stop the fight.
