Joshua vs Klitschko – let’s get ready to rumble!
Britain’s Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko are set to fight it out for two of the heavyweight belts of boxing tonight! (Saturday, 29 April) Current IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua believes he will take “another step towards greatness” when he meets Klitschko in the ring.
Get into the spirit of Joshua vs Klitschko, the fight being touted as the richest bout in British boxing history – with the Shoot Boxing Playlist.
Featuring ring walk anthems from Stormzy (‘Shut Up’) and Red Hot Chili Peppers (Can’t Stop’), to crowd favourites and stadium anthems from Queen, Dr Dre, Survivor, Guns ‘N’ Roses, The Prodigy, 50 Cent, AC/DC, DMX, Kanye West, Foo Fighters, Kasabian, The White Strips and many more!
Joshua, 27 (18-0, 18 KOs), will defend his title and bid for the vacant WBA belt in front of a record boxing crowd of 90,000 at London’s Wembley Stadium in just his 19th professional fight, and it’s expected to be a clash of styles to say the least.
Klitschko, 41 (64-4, 53 KOs), was unbeaten in 11 years prior to his last fight in November 2015 (against Tyson Fury) and states he is “obsessed” with overcoming Joshua. Klitschko will no doubt bring a more defensive style to the ring.
According to some sources, Joshua heads into the fight as a sizable favorite to topple the former king of heavyweight at -260, with oddsmakers are leaning toward the up-and-comer to earn the victory.
“I will always stand up to the competition,” said Joshua. “There is no fear at all which trembles through the body.”
Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn has dubbed the £30m showdown between the former sparring partners, a fight for “the history books”.
Joshua vs Klitschko is expected to sell roughly a million times on UK pay-per-view television, with the fight is also being broadcast in Germany, and in the US rival broadcasters Showtime and HBO will both transmit the bout.
