Confirmed: Anthony Joshua Set For His Biggest Test To Date Against Wladimir Klitschko

Anthony Joshua is the rising name in British boxing. The undefeated IBF world heavyweight champion has finally confirmed his most highly anticipated fight yet - a £30 million bout with boxing legend Wladimir Klitschko.

The fight is confirmed for the 10th of December, but a venue is yet to be confirmed.

It's unlikely to be in the O2 in London because of the proximity to scheduled concerts.

David Haye is backing Joshua, 26, to beat Klitschko, 40, saying that the Ukranian great is past his best, and that Joshua will have too much for him (via the Sun):

Joshua has got him at the perfect time. Klitschko physically always looks the part and comes to the ring in shape but he is not the fighter he once was.

Joshua at 26 is too fresh, too young, too enthusiastic. Klitschko is just too old.
