Should be a good fight.

I don't know why people claim Joshua is inexperienced. He's 27 & won Olympic gold as an amatuer. He's since fought 18 times as a pro & won the world title. His experiences have earned him a Wembley mega fight.

Klitschko had a bad night against Fury. At 41, he will still be just as fit as he was against the other fighters he's beaten from the age of 35 onwards. And now he's not got a belt, even more determined. However he will be rusty after not fighting for so long. They say a round in a fight is better than a thousand rounds of sparring.

AJ is inexperienced because he has never fought a high calibre heavyweight like Pulev or Povetkin for example. He won the IBF from Charles Martin who obtained it in a vacant fight. But still its early days for AJ.

I believe Wladimir will win. How about you?

People said Lewis/Ruddock was a 50/50 fight after Ruddock had gone the distance with Tyson in their second fight, after wobbling Tyson in the first fight.  However Lewis, who had not fought anyone worth while then,  stepped up a level & won early. Joshua may do the same although Klitschko is no Ruddock.

Joshua early or late stoppage. Klitschko if it goes the 12 rounds.

AJ in round seven. Experience has nothing to do with it. Wladimir is to old, and just wants one more big payday.

Ruddock thought a Tyson in decline. 1985 to 1987 is when Tyson was on fire.

This is 1986 Mike Tyson. Avoids a 10 punch combo and counters it with a one punch KO.

Thought Tyson was in decent shape against Ruddock. He went on to beat Bruno even more convincingly than before.

He was never the same after Don King took over and replaced his trainer Kevin Rooney.
