The Anthony Joshua versus Wladimir Klitschko WBA heavyweight world title fight at Wembley was an epic event. If you were there on 29th April 2017, as DTB Sports and Events corporate hospitality guests taking full advantage of our sports events management expertise and benefits, we can’t imagine that you would have wanted to be anywhere else.
Anthony Joshua is no longer a pretender to the heavyweight title which the Klitschko brothers dominated for a decade. He has catapulted himself in to the sphere of elite fighters that contenders aspire to be.
It was only the fifth defeat of Klitschko’s professional career and it took 11 rounds and an energised uppercut to beat him so no one can claim that Joshua wasn’t forced to dig deep and earn the victory.
Anthony Joshua was already the Olympic Superweight champion and IBF Heavyweight world champion as he walked into the ring, eager to take the vacant WBA (Super) and IBO heavyweight titles.
Klitschko’s a man mountain who many have fought but few have overpowered. It’s no coincidence that between 2006 and 2015 has been given the moniker of the Klitschko era. He is the second longest reigning heavyweight champion of all time with the second highest success rate of title defences. He’s surpassed the legendary Mohammad Ali’s records.
The 29th April 2017 saw Klitschko’s first attempt to reclaim a title in over ten years. The result was never obvious. Both men were determined, skilled and invigorated by the knowledge of the title’s worth to them and to their opponent. Luck, natural talent and ingenuity combined to deliver arguably the best boxing match in several years.
In recent days even people who aren’t interested in boxing or haven’t watched a match in a while have found that their interest has been reignited. Britain is enjoying a strong presence in the sport and Joshua’s hard won victory will inspire. Who can say what he’ll be able to achieve in his career?
