Klitschko vs Joshua Live: In less than two weeks, current IBF Heavyweight titlist Anthony Joshua and former universally recognized Heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko will tangle in front of a massive British crowd of 90,000 fight fans at the iconic Wembley Stadium in London, England, in what could be a “changing of the guard” within the sport’s former glamour division, or a belated career defining fight for an aging future Hall of Famer.
While the young, strong incumbent title holder is slightly favored leading into the highly anticipated showdown, most experts and handicappers only list the undefeated Briton as a 2-1 favorite. Can the 41 year old puncher from Ukraine pull-off the mild upset on April 29 in the UK?
In the theater of the unexpected that is boxing, anything can and often does happen.Although former WBC world champion Vitali Klitschko will undoubtedly assume a customary role in his little brother’s corner, Dr. Iron Fist admits he has no idea how the scheduled twelve round contest will play out.Nobody knows,” the former two-time Heavyweight champion stated to FightHype. “The the sport of boxing is, ‘let’s see what happens’. But I know it’s two Olympic gold medalists and two of the best Heavyweights in the world.”
The 6’8″ Mayor of Kiev believes the IBF championship is Wladimir’s to win or lose.
“I know Wladimir has great skills, and he’s the best in the world. He sometimes needs focus for a fight. If Wladimir is focused 100%, Joshua doesn’t have a chance.”
“But everything depends on Wladimir. How focused with my brother be in the fight?”
After losing his coveted distinctions to Tyson Fury in November of 2015, the aging title challenger was heavily scrutinized for only landing 52 of 231 total punches thrown throughout the dreadful twelve round affair with the UK native. And with an inactive streak spanning a full year and a half, many pundits and ringside experts agree that Klitschko’s best years are behind him.Despite being 14 years older than the local favorite and active champ, Vitali claims age will not be a factor in this match-up.

Klitschko was a world champion at heavyweight for 10 years until losing to Tyson Fury two years ago in 2015. That was the last time that Klitschko fought. He spent a year trying to get a rematch with Fury, but two fights against him fell through for various reasons. Wladimir is now coming off of a loss and a 2-year layoff to fight Joshua. That’s not good news. Some fans have likely forgotten about Klitschko. Many of the fans that did see Wladimir lose to Fury in 2015 think the Ukrainian fighter is over-the-hill. He sure looked it against Fury.
According to Rafael, HBO isn’t paying as much for the fight because of them showing it on tape delay. However, given the time that HBO is showing the fight during primetime, you can argue that they’re getting a better deal. Fans in the U.S are accustomed to watching boxing events in the evening rather than the afternoon. As such, there might not be a lot of fans that tune to see the Joshua-Klitschko fight live on Showtime Klitschko vs Joshua Live. Even if they advertise the fight to the hilt, I’m not sure that a lot of fans will be around in the afternoon to see the fight on the day of the fight.Showtime could have advantage over HBO if they send out a press release immediately after the Joshua-Klitschko fight to the boxing websites letting them know of the results. By the time HBO’s broadcast starts in the evening, the fans will have already known about the fight results for the Joshua-Klitschko fight.
The fight will be televised in the UK on Sky Box Office pay-per-view. In the States, HBO and Showtime have agreed to a $3 million deal with Joshua’s promoters at Matchroom Sport to show the fight in the U.S, according to Dan Rafael of ESPN. Showtime will televise the Joshua-Klitschko fight live in the afternoon on Saturday, April 29, while HBO sill show the fight by tape delay in the evening hours during the primetime. Showtime already had Joshua under contract to have his fights televised in the U.S. In the past, Klitschko had some of his fights shown on HBO. His 2014 fight against Bryant Jennings was televised on HBO.
HBO and Showtime are still working on the contract for the fight, according to Rafael. There’s not much time left before the Joshua vs. Klitschko fight takes place on April 29, so they’re going to need to finish the negotiations soon. The fight won’t be announced in the U.S until the contract negotiations are done for the Joshua-Klitschko fight.Joshua and Klitschko’s world heavyweight title fight, live on Sky Sports Box Office on April 29, is fast approaching and both men have been surrounding themselves with the best possible training partners.Washington (18-1-1), a former world title challenger, opted to spar Klitschko instead of sharing a gym with Joshua.”They asked me to come, and I would love to work with [Joshua] also, but I wanted to be around someone who has had longevity like the long-time champion,” Washington exclusively told Sky Sports.“I want to gain that experience.
