Anthony Joshua

Anthony Joshua can become biggest star in boxing, says promoter Eddie Hearn

IBF champion Joshua can add the WBA 'super' title with victory over Klitschko in Saturday's heavyweight unification clash, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

A record crowd of 90,000 will attend the fight, which will also be watched by a worldwide audience on television, and Hearn believes the unbeaten 27-year-old could soon be recognised as the most marketable figure in the sport.

"He becomes the biggest star in British sport and the biggest star in world boxing," Hearn told Sky Sports. "It's early in his career, it's his 19th fight, so masses of pressure."

Anthony Joshua v Wladimir Klitschko: 'Memory stick mind games won't faze me'

Klitschko, who is entering his 29th world title fight, revealed on Thursday he has made a video of his prediction for their heavyweight bout at Wembley.

That has been saved on a memory stick which will be sewn into his robe.

"It's strategy," said Joshua, 27. "An attempt at a mind game. I didn't take it the way he wanted to express it."

Former heavyweight champion Klitschko, 41, will auction his robe - and its contents - for charity after the Wembley Stadium super fight for Joshua's IBF title and the vacant WBA belt.

Joseph Parker v Anthony Joshua fight 'possible'

Parker, the World Boxing Organisation champion, makes his maiden defence against Fury at Auckland's Vector Arena.

NZ Herald reports Joshua, the International Boxing Federation titleholder, and Klitschko, the former IBF, WBO and World Boxing Association champion, fight for the vacant WBA belt at London's Wembley Stadium.

A total of 90,000 tickets are understood to have been sold for the latter fight alongside an expected million pay-per-view passes, courtesy of an exclusive deal with BSkyB. Budgets suggest the fight will generate more than 50 million in revenue.

Joseph Parker on Anthony Joshua's radar again

Klitschko says he will only take the December 10 fight in Manchester if the WBA belt is on the line too.

The WBA and WBO belts have been freed up by Tyson Fury who handed them over to concentrate on his battles with depression and drug use.

Joshua's manager Eddie Hearn said the next 48 hours would be vital as they seek a ruling from the WBA. In the meantime he confirmed he is looking at other options.

Hearn's easiest backup route is to call out Parker who is the mandatory challenger with the IBF.
