AJ And Klitschko Aim To Give Boxing A ‘Different Image’

On Wednesday night at Wembley Stadium, the ‘friendliest’ press conference ever seen, took place between Ukrainian boxer Wladimir Klitschko and our boy, British born and IBF heavyweight title holder ANTHONY JOSHUA! The press conference is ahead of their eagerly anticipated ‘Sky Sports Box Office Fight’ on April 20th 2017!

In the conference, Joshua stated outright that winning is all that matters. The 27 year old heavyweight really showed his confidence, whilst sitting just feet away from Klitschko. You are one brave boyo Joshy!

The fight has been named as ‘the toughest test’ in his career yet!

The press were shocked during the conference as neither fighter had a single bad word to say about one another. Instead there were a few smiles (sort of) and a cheeky little tickle to Joshua’s abdominal area from Klitschko (Who after that, I like to call – ‘A big friendly teddy bear’)

During the head to head at Wembley Stadium, Joshua said:

“To knock him out would be the cherry on the cake, but to win whichever way, I think it’s very possible,” said Joshua.

“This is a fight that can change (me) from champion to legend overnight.

“It’s the fight that will get the masses out and draw massive attention and they’re the type of fights that can change the way that people view you in your industry.
