Fury tells Joshua 'challenge accepted' as he seeks showdown with world champion

But Klitschko hit back and pinned Joshua to the ropes to turn the round on its head.

In response, Fury tweeted: 'Anthony Joshua challenge accepted.

Heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua, has revealed the Nigerian foods that gives him strength.

No reason to leave early when being the heavyweight champion is so much fun. "I'm really loving this right now". "So, a massive shout out to Wladimir Klitschko", he said.

The biggest heavyweight fight in more than a decade turned out to be one of the best in recent times.

"Let's just remember it was tough fight for Klitschko and it was a tough fight for Joshua".

"I tried to recover and then step it up in the later rounds, that was the plan. But all the respect to Anthony, congratulations", he said. I just want to fight everyone.

"Of course, we have it in the contract", Klitschko said.

Joshua called out Tyson Fury after his sensational stoppage of Klitschko in front of 90,000 people. Joshua said. "Come on - that's what they want to see". Joshua asked. "Come on, we're here, man".

"I wasn't surprised that the fight ended in a knockout, I had predicted that it would surely happen but I didn't get the round correct".

The possibilities are tantalizing indeed, and so are the prospects for stardom for Joshua.

This did not sound like a man who was quite ready to hang up his gloves and he had not looked like one either as he often outboxed his old sparring partner, teaching Joshua more in one night than he had learned in his other 18 bouts combined.

His knockout power is unquestioned, and after Saturday night so is his heart.

"The experience I've gained is more important than the belts".

As the Wembley crowd cheered him afterwards, though, Klitschko started to appreciate that the historic contest had elevated the reputations of all involved.

"But I must obtain that belt first so I can bring it to the table for a unification fight". "As long as Rob [McCracken, Joshua's trainer] thinks it's good I'm good to go".

"I'm not ideal but I'm trying", Joshua said. When you go to the trenches, that's when you find out who you really are.

"The next phase is all about the big heavyweight championship fights". Klitschko, in his 29th world title fight, seemed to be taking the advantage in the later rounds until the vicious uppercut sent him spinning across the ring.

American boxing great Sugar Ray Leonard described the encounter as an "an awesome fight, with two great fighters", adding, "Lot of heart by both fighters".

However, he remains active on social media and indicated he wants to return, judging by his reply on Twitter to Joshua's calls from the ring.

"This is boxing. I'm only going to improve", Joshua said. "As I said, I'm not ideal, but I'm trying".

However in the 11th round, he knocked the veteran to the canvas two times and eventually won at the stroke of the end of the round.

"The best man won tonight and it's an unbelievable moment for boxing".
