Can Anthony Joshua beat Wladimir Klitschko to become the best heavyweight in the world?

The simple answer to everyone’s question just after midnight on Saturday was yes, Anthony Joshua can beat Wladimir Klitschko in Wembley in April.

Joshua is set to face off against one of the greatest of all time in front of a 91,000 Wembley crowd on April 29.

His fight and predictable knockout of Eric Molina quickly became a sideshow when Eddie Hearn announced after the clash Joshua would take on Klitschko next year.

It is truly a super-fight, not unlike Andre Ward’s clash with Sergey Kovalev last month, this one will get boxing fans excited.

There is no turning back now for Joshua, the time of fighting borderline amateurish opponents has gone by.

Klitschko kept a vice-like grip on the heavyweight division for ten years, but Joshua needs just one chance to show the thunder in his gloves.

Klitschko is elite, but Joshua can write his own legacy with one swift punch to the Ukrainian’s chin.

So, can he do it?
