Yeah, if it did go the whole 12 rounds then i think Klitschko would have just won on points.

Think he's answered a few questions tonight...

He can go the distance albeit not comfortably - but he never will, carrying that muscle mass he'll always struggle.

He can take a punch... and has got the heart to come back.

I think with AJs last round or so with the punches he landed it would've been damn close.

Both fighters were a credit to sport tonight. AJ looked in big trouble but boom!!!

Apparently AJ was ahead on the judges cards, that round would have sealed it if there wasnt the stoppage.

This is a huge win for Joshua, i dont even think hes near his full potential and hes just taken out one of the greatest boxers in recent times.

I hope he fights Fury and knocks him the f*** out.
That was an epic sporting event. Superb in every way.

So do I... but I don't think he would. Fury is just too tall and awkward. He's f***ing garbage - but his reach wins him fights. He doesn't stay in shape cuz he hardly has to move about. Don't get me wrong, if AJ lands, he'd hurt Fury (Fury has been floored by far worse early in his career), but whether he can get to him or not I'm not sure.

AJ is a f***ing animal. Genius strategy from AJ, clear as day after that initial burst that AJ was just going to defend the next 3-4 rounds and get his breath to go again, risky but it worked to perfection. One of the best in the world, if not the best.

I was buzzing, only just coming down now. And I'm not even a big boxing fan but that fight was impossible not to get absorbed by. Two superb ambassadors for their sport, for any sport.

I need a drink!

If I'd done that then a stake of £0.00 would've returned £0.00 <roll>

Really got out of the betting habit this season as ultimately you never win. Had a couple of accys but that's it.

This. Haven't followed boxing at all in the past 10 years but that fight was completely engrossing. At the start I was actually leaning slightly more to favouring Klitschko (Don't give a s*** about Britain, Klitschko's one of the greats) but Joshua completely won me over with how he approached that fight and I cheering each punch of his in the 11th round as if it was a Newcastle attack!

What a fight.

I think Fury would've had a much tougher time had that Wlad turned up against him.

I watched it with my wife who isn't a sports fan at all. Even she was up shouting and cheering in R11 and bricking it when AJ went down. One of those rare sporting events that the occasion and competitors just pull in everyone.

Great fight that. Would even watch a rematch, or Vitali to try avenge the loss <awe>

Also Wlad looked better than he has for years, whether that's due to it being AJ or just that he was so up for it, not sure at all. Cannot see AJ beating a fit Fury though, he's just too quick and has the best movement I can remember in a HW in 20 years.

Never seen so much beer being thrown in the air as when he knocked Wlad down just before the ref called it off. Special ,special atmosphere.
