Anthony Joshua beats Eric Molina

SUCCESS: Anthony Joshua

ANTHONY JOSHUA has successfully defended his IBF heavyweight title against Eric Molina, and has revealed that he will be fighting Wladimir Klitschko.

The 27-year-old will face former heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium on 29 April 2017.

Joshua, who was making the second defence of his belt, knocked Molina down with a short right before the referee waved the fight off.

The Manchester Arena was a 21,000 sell-out and those in attendance included Klitschko, former heavyweight world champions Shannon Briggs, David Haye, and WBC cruiserweight world champion Tony Bellew.

Kitschko, who will be 41 in April, lost his WBA, IBF and WBO belts to Manchester's Tyson Fury last year.
