Boxing returned to Wembley Stadium connected by EE for a heavyweight bout of titanic proportions.

Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko went through 11 rounds of heart-stopping, hard-hitting boxing as they fought it out under the arch for the IBF, IBO and WBA Super Heavyweight Championships of the world.

Both fighters exchanged early blows but it was Joshua who made the first real impact of the night when he caught Klitschko in the 5th Round and sent the Ukrainian to the floor.

The former Heavyweight champion responded perfectly by returning the favour when he caught Joshua with a right hook and the English man hit the deck.

But it was Round 11 when Joshua showed his true class as he landed some amazing blows on Klitschko who hit the floor two more times before the referee had to step in and stop the Ukrainian from receiving any more punishment.

Another truly memorable night at Wembley and it was great to see the best part of 90,000 Anthony Joshua fans heading home happy.
