Undefeated British fighter Anthony Joshua defeated Wladimir Klitschko in their world heavyweight title fight at Wembley tonight. In his post match interview, Joshua said,
“Well, what can I say. First and foremost 19 and 0, three and a half years in the game. I’m not perfect but I’m trying. If you don’t take part you fail. I want to give a big shout out to my trainer and GB boxing, to 90,000 people in the arena and lastly a massive shout-out for Wladimir Klitschko. I’m not going to say too much in case he wants to come back and fight me again but he is a role model in and out for the ring and I’ve got huge respect and love for Wladimir Klitschko.
I am a little bit emotional because there are people who think I can’t do it. I dig deep and you never know the outcome. Boxing’s about character and when you go to the trenches that when you find out where you are. There’s nowhere to hide in that little ring. I came out and won that’s how deep i had to dig. I fought my heart out. And Tyson Fury baby, where are you man? I want to give 90,000 people another chance to watch a night like this’.
‘London I love you. The best man won tonight. Two gentlemen fought each other. Anthony was better than me tonight. It was really sad I didn’t do it. Love and respect to you guys, you are awesome. I wish I could raise my hands instead of not winning the title back. [A re-match?] I have to work out what the hell happened here’.
