Joshua stops Klitschko to retain heavyweight belts

Wladimir Klitschko failed in his bid to become a three-time world champion as he was stopped in the 11th round by Britain’s Anthony Joshua at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

The 41-year-old Ukrainian was down on the canvas in round five before sending Joshua to the mat for the first time in his career in round six.

But Joshua rallied back and dropped Klitschko twice with an uppercut and left hook combination before a flurry of punches in the corner gave the referee no choice but to stop the fight in the penultimate round and declare Joshua as the undefeated WBA and IBF heavyweight world champion.
