Anthony Joshua won an outstanding bout against Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley on Saturday to add the WBA world heavyweight title to his IBF crown.

Joshua sent the Ukrainian to the canvas in the fifth round only for Klitschko to respond by putting the Englishman down in the sixth.

The 41-year-old Klitschko appeared to be finishing strongly when Joshua stepped up his game in the 11th round, putting the Ukrainian down twice before referee David Fields put an end to the enthralling contest.

At the time of the stoppage, Joshua was up 96-93 and 95-93 on two cards, with Klitschko leading 95-93 on the other.

An elated Joshua said afterwards: "I knew it was possible to hurt him, but I am learning round by round. I'm learning under the bright lights.

"I don't come to box, I come to hurt people. With all due respect, I came to hurt him.

"At the end of the day, I figured out what I had to do and got him done.

"I showed that fights are won in the gym. It gets tough and boxing isn't easy. You have to have the whole package."

Joshua is available at 8/13 to win a future bout against Tyson Fury who is 5/4 to come out on top.
