The Countdown Is On: Anthony Joshua Gets Ready For Wladimir Klitschko

The mega-showdown between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko is just over a week away, as Joshua makes the third defence of his IBF heavyweight world title.

As well as the IBF belt, the vacant WBA Super title is also up for grabs as the pair of monster heavyweights will trade leather at the home of the England national football team.

90,000 fans will flock to Wembley Stadium to absorb not just one of the biggest fights on these shores, but one of the biggest events in the sporting calendar.

Joshua is fresh off thrashing Eric Molina inside three rounds, after his mauling of the stubborn American Dominic Breazeale.

Ahead of the highly-anticipated fight, Lucozade Sport has produced a stunning film. The video encompasses the highs and lows of Joshua's life while showing his drive to move forward.

After successfully retaining his title twice, Joshua will look to make it a hat-trick of defences while collecting another world title.

Meanwhile, Klitschko will return to the ring after being stripped of his titles by fellow-Brit Tyson Fury. It's his first outing since being stunned on the night of November 28th 2015.

The intriguing heavyweight unification clash pits many questions.

Is Joshua ready for this acid test? Is Klitschko making a mistake not having a fight in the interim? To name but a few.

The Lucozade Sport ambassador is set for his toughest professional test as he takes on a former unified world champion.

After embarking on an inspiring story stemming from his modest surroundings to now fighting at an iconic stadium, the stage is set for Joshua to show his potential.

This story is perfectly encapsulated in Lucozade Sport's 'Made To Move' video tribute which chronicles the rise of the nation's boxing icon; from being chased by the police in Meriden estate to fighting at Wembley Stadium.

Though Klitschko will be seeking to inflict him with his first pro-defeat, while regaining his world titles as the 41-year-old heads into the twilight of his boxing career.

It's almost here! April 29th can't come soon enough.

Joshua or Klitschko - who's everyone backing?
