Just watching the (now) traditional pre-fight "tete a tete" between the fighters on Sky and......Joshua looks nervous.

I'm no body language expert but I have been on a few courses about how to read people over the years and he definitely looks a bit nervy to me.

Didn't expect that.

Still think he'll win though if he protects his chin.

I find this a hard fight to call.

It shouldn't be really a 27 year old Adonis against an old man of 40!

I thought Klit's experience would be enough to outfox Fury but Tyson boxed amazingly and proved me wrong.

So it should really be an easy call to say Joshua should do the same then - but will he?

Joshua has never gone over seven rounds before and he carries an awful lot of muscle.

I can see Klit being clever enough to make the bout go the distance and let Joshua tire as the rounds go by.

But on the other hand Joshua can hit!

He's had 18 bouts and won them all by KO.

My thinking is that Klit doesn't need the money nor the chance to make his name in the game so he must be boxing on because believes in himself and his ability to beat someone in amazing shape and a dozen years younger than himself.

He doesn't strike me (no pun intended) as someone just turning up expecting to win easy, I fully expect that he's trained hard and fully for this.

If Joshua can't stop him within the first half of the bout then I can only see a win for Klitschko.

So once again I'll go for Klit and see if he'll prove me wrong yet again!

just ordered the pay per view so can't wait for this now. Klitschko looked petrified of getting hit by Fury in his last fight and and for me Joshua hits even harder, i just wonder if he has got over that properly?

I'm going for Joshua to win in the first half of the fight as i think he will have too much speed and power.

Fury was a bad day at the office a one off klit will own Joshua and end it with a ko or stoppage either early or after Joshua has run out of oxygen with those muscles,this is not a good fight for Joshua. On the other hand he might blast klit out early. I'm also going for klit but probably wrong as well.

Looking forward to this. Think AJ will beat him, Klit is at the end of his career

I discovered earlier this evening that my Father in Law has booked the fight.

He's pretty new to Sky and the whole "push a button on your remote to buy shit" thing is still pretty new and awesome in his mind.

Anyone who saw the picture I posted after the last Sky Box Office fight will appreciate that this is a double-edged sword for me.

I get to watch the fight for free but I also have to put up with a couple of hours of mindless bullshit during the pre-amble, as he pontificates about why he thinks Fighter A or B will win. 

(His prediction will vacillate wildly during the course of the night and will depend on largely on which pundit has spoken most recently.)

And whoever wins, he will have called it.

Obviously......

At least I'll get a cup of tea and a piece of cake.

I've escaped, by the way, and booked it at home.

Ta.
I hate the so called 'ring walk',but I suppose I'll have to put up with it. They'll probably go off about midnight.
Speaking of ring walks,this has always been my favourite. It doesn't end well.

I've had a tenner on Joshua to win in round 1 @ 25/1.
And a fiver on Klitschko to win in round 1 @ 90/1.
I'm hoping for an interesting 3 minutes. Very Happy

Joshua wins in the 11th.

Fair play to both boxers - it could have gone either way at times.

Very well done to Joshua.

A well deserved round of applause to Klitschko too.

Great fight.

Was a great fight, both knocked down. Took longer for AJ to recover but turned as the rounds went on I think age went against Klit. A rematch? Tyson Fury next? Exciting times

fantastic fight and massive credit to both fighters. That uppercut on Klitschko almost took his head off  Shocked

I thought AJ was in trouble after he went down but Klitschko didn't move in quick enough to finish it off and let him recover.

Thoroughly enjoyed the fight despite watching it on a phone in a bar in Italy. Thought Joshua could have mixed up his repertoire of punches earlier in the fight when there were openings for hooks and uppercuts that he didn't take - but he can learn from that. Certainly paid off at the end.
Enormous hype surrounding the young man now so hopefully he'll pick his fights carefully going forward.
