Kl­itschko to use Joshua ses­sions as home­work

Sunday Trust - - FEVER PITCH -

Former cham­pion Wladimir Kl­itschko has said spar­ring with Bri­tain’s An­thony Joshua a few years ago has given him an idea of what to ex­pect ahead of their world heavy­weight ti­tle clash at Wem­b­ley Sta­dium on April 29.

Ukrainian Kl­itschko, who in­vited Joshua to a train­ing camp in Novem­ber 2014, was im­pressed by the Lon­don 2012 Olympics cham­pion’s at­ti­tude and ath­leti­cism but in­sisted that both fight­ers had ben­e­fited from the spar­ring ses­sions.

“It’s an ad­van­tage on both sides. We have sparred and we have been in the ring to­gether,” the 41-year-okd Kl­itschko told Bri­tish media in the build up to his bid to hand de­fend­ing IBF cham­pion Joshua a first de­feat as a pro­fes­sional.
