anyone watching ?

AJ to win within 4 rounds would be my guess if he utilises his jab and uses his head

I know more about horse racing than I do boxing, so that tells you my boxing knowledge is about as limited as can be!

I'm not paying to watch it.

No interest myself but link to RP preview.

Hills are enhancing Joshua by KO, TKO or disqualification to evens later.

That article pretty much sums up my first thoughts on the price Joshua at 1.50 to win seems a bit ridiculous.
Klitschko has fought in 28 heavyweight title fights

Might be a watching brief for the first couple of rounds.

But to be fair, I thought that Klitschko would thrash Tyson Fury. {:(

Joshua to win for me , despite his being vastly more experienced i just cant see Klitschko winning , AJ is fitter , faster and if he isnt over awed by the whole thing and doesnt afford Klitschko too much respect i can see him winning within 7 rounds . I agree with Col the first coupla rounds will probably be ones where they size each other up etc ... but once they get going i think Joshua will prove to fast and powerful for the Ukranian. I wouldnt put anyone off Klitschko however as he's been there and done that and merits the utmost respect but as i say despite his knowledge and experience i think hes been out of the ring along while , hes slower than he was , and he will need to be at the very top of his game (and probably need a bit of luck besides) too beat a hungry , fitter and more powerful opponent .

Good summing up Linny, agree with all that - let's hope it's a good fight though I'm not paying to watch it. Wonder if there are free streams on Kodi?

Out on his feet in the middle rounds, came back to knock him out.
