British heavyweight boxing star Joshua knocks out Klitschko

Anthony Joshua established himself as the world's leading heavyweight when he stopped Wladimir Klitschko in 11 rounds at Wembley.

Joshua knocked Klitschko down once in the fifth and twice in the 11 before referee David Fields stepped in to protect the defenseless former champion at 2:25 of the penultimate round.

Joshua survived a knockdown for the first time in his professional career in the sixth round and looked close to surrendering his unbeaten record until his late bombardment forced the stoppage.

A crowd of 90,000 is packed into Wembley Stadium for the bout.

On the possibility of a rematch, Hearn explained: "If fans want to see a rematch then I would say there's a very good chance that be met".

Officers stopped and searched another Arizona woman, a 26-year-old from Rico, who was returning to the country from Mexico. Three Americans, including the woman, and a Mexican national were arrested for trying to smuggle drugs into the country.

Still undefeated, Joshua has now set his sights on Tyson Fury and after Saturday night's victory the Watford man will be confident of defeating the 28-year-old or anyone else who stands in his way.

"To be exposed in front of 90,000 people with your lack of experience is brutal but to come through the other side is just one of the most remarkable performances I've ever seen".

One thing is certain: Joshua has breathed new life into boxing's blue riband division, which for over a decade was characterized by Klitschko's one-sided and often uninspiring victories over a succession of mediocre opponents.

Klitschko courageously got up but was nailed by another right and another right uppercut which dumped him back on the canvas.

Klitschko landed 4.5 jabs per round after averaging 8.7 per round coming into the fight, according to CompuBox.

"As boxing states, you leave your ego at the door and you respect your opponent, so a massive shou-tout to Vladamir Klitschko for taking part".

Joshua rocked Klitschko and dropped him in round five.

"I'm a little bit emotional, because I know I've got doubters that think that I can't do this and do that, but I dig deep". I will play with you. By the end of the round, it was Klitschko pummeling a exhausted Joshua.

Cameras picked up Joshua urging Klitschko on and talking to him in the clinch.

Fury has been inactive since his defeat of Klitschko having most recently struggled with depression, but has made plenty of noise on social media in the run up to the fight having returned to training in Marbella. "It's really sad I didn't make it tonight." .
