Anthony Joshua has defeated Wladimir Klitschko with an 11th round stoppage in a thrilling heavyweight title fight at Wembley.

Both fighters were on the brink of defeat at various stages, with Joshua recovering from a knockdown that subdued him in the middle rounds to steady the ship and stop the Ukrainian.

Klitschko, 41, defied many who believed he would be steamrollered in the early rounds by his younger opponent, and held off the Briton behind his jab.

Joshua found his mark with a ferocious flurry in the fifth that sent Klitschko to the canvas, but the experienced former champion held on to the bell.

Remarkably, he came back with a right hook of his own to knock down the British fighter, who then himself appeared seconds from defeat.
