Though the first four rounds of this fight were somewhat conservative, Joshua roared into offensive mode in the fifth, battering his decorated foe and dropping him early in the round. From there, Klitschko surged back, controlling the remainder of the round and scoring his own dizzying knockdown in the sixth. Having tasted each other’s power, the two heavyweights then engaged in another cautious, chess-like stretch, until Joshua turned up the volume in eleventh, and dropped Klitschko yet again. Though the Ukrainian great was able to regain his footing after this knockdown, Joshua was quick to unleash another onslaught, this time punishing a dazed Klitschko against the ropes until the referee intervened.
