British super-heavyweight boxer Anthony Joshua looks to be in peak physical condition ahead of his upcoming battle for the world super heavyweight championship against Wladimir Klitschko. The heavy handed boxer looks to be absolutely shredded ahead of his showdown with Klitschko on April 29th, 2017 at Wembley Stadium in London.
Joshua boasts a 100% knockout to win ratio, is undefeated with 18 wins and is ranked the world’s top heavyweight by BoxRec as of February 2017. The Olympic gold medalist has been pursuing a unification bout with Klitschko for the WBA super title and the vacant IBO heavyweight title for quite some time and doesn’t look to have been slacking while he waited. Videos of Joshua’s workouts have surfaced on twitter, showing the heavyweight looking extremely light and quick on his feet.

An Instagram post from the 27-year-old shows him looking to be in peak physical condition ahead of his fight with Klitschko, who has 64 wins and 21 years of professional ring time. Regardless, Klitschko hasn’t entered the ring for about 18 months and could be a little bit rusty. He last fought Tyson Fury in November of 2015, losing the WBO title in the process.
Predictably, Joshua believes he will defeat Klitschko by knockout. The 40-year-old Ukranian veteran has only lost 4 fights in his 68 fight career, with three of them being via TKO. He last lost by TKO in 2004 against Lamon Brewster in a fight for the vacant WBO title.
90,000 fans will be in attendance at Wembley Stadium in London as the two finally face off against each other next month in what is sure to be the biggest boxing event ever held in England.
