Joshua floors Klitschko twice to claim WBA and IBO belts

The British Olympic champion added the vacant WBA and the IBO titles to his IBF belt by stopping the Ukraine fighter in the 11th round.

Anthony Joshua was hailed as "the biggest star in British sport and the biggest star in world boxing" after his exhilarating world heavyweight title triumph over Wladimir Klitschko on Saturday sky-rocketed him into the global sporting elite.

After the Briton's 11th round stoppage of Ukraine's rejuvenated former champion at Wembley Stadium in a heavyweight title fight for the ages, Joshua's handlers outlined ambitious plans to turn him into a global phenomenon.

Promoter Eddie Hearn envisages the charismatic, 27-year-old, who unified the IBF and WBA titles in front of a record-equalling 90,000 crowd, emulating his idol, Muhammad Ali, by taking his special talent around the world.
