Anthony Joshua vs. Wladimir Klitschko Live Stream: How To Watch Online

Boxing matches don’t get any bigger that this, as there will be an absolutely massive fight going down over the pond. The undefeated Anthony Joshua will put his heavyweight IBF title on the line against the legendary Wladimir Klitschko in front of a sold-out Wembley Stadium crowd. The buzz surrounding this fight is so palpable that they even added an extra 10,000 seats to the stadium to match demand, meaning that 90,000 people will be in attendance. The vacant heavyweight WBA title will also be at stake in this 12-round bout, which will air live on Showtime this evening and be replayed on HBO later tonight.

Joshua (18-0, 18 KOs) is looking to become the next dominant heavyweight force in boxing, and there’s not too many people who are doubting the British superstar. He won a gold medal at the 2012 Olympics in the super heavyweight division, and he’s been steamrolling the competition since turning pro. Joshua won the IBF heavyweight title on April 9, 2016, knocking out Charles Martin in the second round of their fight. He’s successfully defended his belt twice, stopping Dominic Breazeale in the seventh round and Éric Molina in the third.

If you name an achievement in boxing, there’s a damn good chance that Klitschko (64-4, 53 KOs) has done it. He won a gold medal for the Ukraine in the super heavyweight division at the 1996 Olympics, and he’s held every belt imaginable professionally, including the WBA, WBO, and IBF titles. He’s a two-time heavyweight champion, and prior to being upset by Tyson Fury in his last fight, Klitschko had been undefeated for more than 11 years. This will be Klitschko’s 29th world title fight, which is a record in the heavyweight division.

Will we have a changing of the guard or does the wily veteran still have some gas left in the tank? There’s only one way to find out, so let’s breakdown all of the different ways you can watch Joshua take on Klitschko.
