Nigerian-born British heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua has been crowned the new IBF, IBO and WBA Super World Heavyweight Title Champion after knocking out former title holder Wladimir Klitschko in emphatic fashion in front of a 90,000 strong crowd held Saturday night at the Wembley Stadium, London.
Joshua kissed the canvas in the sixth round but fought back to drop the Ukrainian with a brutal combination of punches late in the eleventh with the referee stepping in to wave the fight off.
