One of the more light-hearted notes in the sport of boxing has come to light in a new documentary produced by Sky Sports ahead of this weekend’s Anthony Joshua vs Alexander Povetkin fight.
The marquee name on Joshua’s record to date is still Wladimir Klitschko.
And what a win it was.
Fighting in front of a huge crowd at Wembley stadium, Joshua overcame adversity from getting knocked down to ultimately get up and knock out Klitschko.
That was the last time Klitschko ever fought.
Speaking on Sky’s new ‘Joshua vs Klitschko – Behind The Scenes’ documentary, former world champion Carl Froch told Joshua straight after the fight:
“Josh, you took my title, you took my 80,000 and then you do that (knock out Klitschko). That was outrageous.”
Joshua then asked:
“Was it alright?”
To which Froch signaled a perfect hand sign and nodded.
Good old Froch, never one to let us forget that he boxed in front of 80,000 people in the rematch against George Groves.
He should get 80000 trademarked at this stage.
Fast forward couple of years on this weekend Joshua finds himself back at Wembley taking on another Olympic champion from Eastern Europe in the form of Alexander Povetkin.
