Klitschko Banks On Experience To Beat Anthony Joshua In Upcoming Fight

Wladimir Klitschko is counting on experience to help him regain the IBF and WBA heavyweight titles when he faces Britain’s Anthony Joshua.

The 40-year-old said “you can be as good as you are, professional as you are, as athletic or strong but the only thing you can’t swallow like a pill is experience”.

He had remained unbeaten for 11 years before losing the belts to Tyson Fury in 2015.

The Ukrainian boxer has 64 wins and four defeats in his 20-year career.

The fight, which has been slated for April, is expected to draw the biggest British boxing crowd in nearly 80 years with an attendance of 90,000 set to watch at Wembley.

The 38-year-old, who is a senator in his country, retired in April before coming back to defeat Jessie Vargas.

I Won’t Fight Manny Pacquiao Again – Money Man Mayweather

Floyd Mayweather says he will not fight Manny Pacquiao again after branding the Filipino a “coward” and a “sore loser”. “He lost,” said the American, 38. “He knows he lost. I lost a lot of respect for him after all of this.” Mayweather says he did not detect any physical problem for Pacquiao during their welterweight contest.

“Absolutely not,” Mayweather said in an interview with Showtime, to be shown this weekend. “He was fast. His left hand was fast, his right hand was fast and he was throwing them both fast and strong.”

Mayweather told ESPN  earlier this week he would consider fighting Pacquiao again but backtracked
on that in the Showtime interview. “I change my mind,” he said. “At this particular time, no, because he’s a sore loser and he’s a coward.

If you lost, accept the loss.” Mayweather says his last fight before retirement will be in September, with Britain’s Amir Khan a possible opponent.
