Joshua-Klitschko To Take Place at 90,000 Seat Wembley Stadium

Anthony Joshua will be fighting Vladimir Klitschko on April 29th for the heavyweight championship at 90,000-seat Wembley Stadium.  If the event were to sell out it would be the highest attended boxing match in Britain since before World War II.

Carl Froch fought George Groves at Wembley Stadium in 2014 to a crowd of 80,000.  London Mayor Sadiq Khan has given permission for the stadium to allow for 10,000 more fans to watch the Joshua-Klitschko fight.

Ringside Analysis:

Tickets for the heavyweight championship fight have gone quickly and the record-breaking event is sure to make a splash in the newspaper headlines.

Great Britain has been one of the hottest locations in the world for creating championship level fighters and hosting championship fights.

Anthony Joshua is one of the most promising young fighters with elite athleticism and Olympic Gold Medal skills.  Vladimir Klitschko is the current heavyweight champion after Tyson Fury, who outpointed Klitschko to take the heavyweight title from him, was stripped of his belt because of a drug violation.  This fight could be the passing of the torch in the heavyweight division.
