Britain's former Olympic Gold winner and boxing's IBF champion Anthony Joshua is taking on intimidating Ukrainian challenger Wladimir Klitschko this weekend, in what promises to be a classic encounter that should leapfrog David Haye and sit alongside Lennox Lewis in the pantheon of ring memories.

Anthony Joshua vs Wladimir Klitschko: What's at stake?
IBF champion Joshua, 27, is putting up his title alongside the vacant WBA and IBO belts, effectively unifying the Heavyweight division. However, the winner may have to give up one of either the IBF or WBA belts due to rather convoluted internal politics of boxing.
Klitschko, 41, despite being the challenger for once, is an old hand, with a record from 68 fights of 64 wins (53 by knockout) and 4 losses. Joshua, meanwhile, has 18 wins from 18 fights, all by knockout– all of which you can check out here:

The fight is on this Saturday, April 29th. Unlike many top-tier boxing matches, though, this one's in England – at Wembley Stadium, in front of 90,000 people, no less – so isn't on in the middle of the night. While the programme starts at a teatime-tastic 6pm, the actual fisticuffs commence at 10pm (give or take the usual delays).
