Yep could well be over even sooner than that.


But getting in close to Klitschko is not any guarantee of knocking him out of his game plan.


For every fighter that has managed to get joy on the inside against him there are seven or eight that failed.


Don't think this fight will go the distance either way though.

Joshua has to set the pace straight away and he needs for that pace to be high. Think the weight that Joshua has come in at also says that he is going to try to overpower Klitschko. The worst thing that could happen to Joshua would be if he tried to start fast and Klitschko weathers it and manages to slow the pace down.



Would like to see Klitschko land clean though to see how Joshua takes it.

What I do believe though is that if Joshua does get a stoppage win that Klitschko being shot should not be used as an excuse.

I'm pretty excited about this fight and i think i'm going to be underwhelmed to be honest, i can see go either way. Joshua hasn't been in the ring with anyone close to the skillset Klitschko has so it could be a learn-on-the-job long night for him. But also Joshua seems to have the power (if he connects) and loads up i'm not sure Klitschko will have the legs to take much.

Heavyweights always seem tougher to call.

It really is a tough one to call. And to be honest I am on a terrible run of form when it comes to heavyweight fights.

Never in a million years did I see that pikey fuck Fury beating Klitschko, and even then I would have bet my house on Haye smashing Bellew to bits.

What the fuck do I know?!

Joshua weighed in at 250lbs.

No way this fight is going the distance.

Go for a tactical post meal dump at 10bells and line up a stream from your phone. It's a heavyweight so it could be over after the first ding lands. Perfect crime.

Me too. Pacing will be crucial. 2 Roundstones, 1 Einstock and there's a bottle of red breathing in the kitchen.

I just can't choose between them. It's unfair to judge Wlad on that Fury fight because Fury was just so awkward and fucking weird for him to fight. Joshua might just be a chinny hype job - I don't think he's really been tested, and I refuse to accept that Dillian Whyte is a massive hitter capable of troubling the cream of the division, yet he nearly put AJ over. Wlad also has the years of experience in massive fights, yet Joshua is young and potentially superior physically.

Can't pick it!

Nah, theres no chance of skipping it. The restaurant we are heading to is one of those fucking faux posh ones too, so no chance of having the boxing on.

I could record it but I fucking hate watching sport recorded, some cunt always ruins it!

Ill just have to bite the bullet & hope the missus makes it up to me later!

I didn't fancy that price and like Marty I've no recent boxing record in terms of calls to be proud of. Cost me a few dinners.

If AJ is aggressive & can take Klitch's power (if Klitch still has it) then it will be a great fight!
