Klitschko Wants Joshua Rematch


One or maybe two more punches would have been enough and the fight would have been decided in his favour.

It was billed as the biggest fight night ever staged in a British ring and it did live up to its billing with so much for for the 90,000 fans at the Wembly stadium and beyond to cheer about.

"This is boxing - I'm only going to improve", Joshua told Sky Sports News.

Should Fury return to boxing it could be an even bigger fight than Joshua's epic against Klitschko.

"Come on is that what you want to see?"

"I want to get stronger".

U.S. legend Sugar Ray Leonard called the fight "amazing" and said the opponents showed a "lot of heart".

"If people don't want to see a rematch, it won't happen".

"If you don't take part, you're going to fail", Joshua said. I have a rematch clause which I can execute at certain times, and right now will not be making any decisions. Right now I will not announce anything. Now I feel like I've had 144 rounds of boxing.

Mike Mayock mock draft 2017: Is the safe safety the play?
Garrett is the one true star in this year's draft and even if he doesn't pan out, no one could blame the Browns for taking him. At an NFL Draft event Wednesday at Shriners Hospital, Trubisky defended his ability and work ethic.

Shutdown? New president, same old government brinkmanship

Support for marijuana legalization just hit an all time high
And numerous regulations imposed on Colorado's gaming industry have also been applied to recreational marijuana, Brohl said. That suggests that even many people who say it's as unsafe as other drugs such as heroin perhaps don't truly believe that.

"I don't feel as someone who lost".

It was Klitschko's first stoppage defeat since Lamon Brewster beat him in 2004 and leaves his record at 64 wins and five defeats.

Joshua - the London 2012 Olympic gold medallist who was born in England to Nigeria-born parents - had never been beyond seven rounds, Klitschko has fought 12 rounds nine times.

With an entire country screaming for him, Joshua - who had knocked all his previous opponents out by the end of the seventh round - looked exhausted.

"As I've said, I am not flawless but I'm trying". "I thought I could have done more to finish him after he went down".

"I'm looking outside of the ring and seeing so many familiar faces and the look on their faces rebounds on to me, and that's the time I allowed myself to get on the ropes".

WBC champion Deontay Wilder was ringside on Saturday night and the American said he would relish a unification fight with Joshua. "I was planning to do it, but it didn't work".

"(I learnt) that I can knock out anyone.

On a global level, a place on boxing's top table awaits at a time when the sport - and particularly the heavyweight division - has struggled to stay in the public consciousness.
