In one of the most anticipated boxing matches of the year, Anthony Joshua will take on Wladimir Klitschko for the IBF, WBA (Super) and IBO heavyweight titles on Saturday.
Showtime will have television coverage of the event in the United States, beginning at 4:15 p.m. ET with the main event. They will also have a live stream available online at Showtime Anytime. If you want to watch the undercard, the only way to do so is via Sky Box Office in the UK.
HBO will air a replay of the event in the evening on Saturday.
Joshua is 18-0 as a professional and has yet to be subjected to the judge’s scorecards, with knockouts in every fight. He is the current IBF champion while the other two titles are currently vacant.
He earned the IBF title with a knockout win over Charles Martin in April 2016, and has defended it twice since, beating Dominic Breazeale and Eric Molina by TKO.
Klitschko is a legend of the sport, with 64 professional wins, 53 of which came via knockout. He does have four losses, the most recent being a unanimous decision to Tyson Fury in his last fight in November 2015. That fight lost him the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, The Ring, and lineal heavyweight titles.
He’s been out of competition for some time, but he’s still one of the most dangerous boxers to ever compete in the sport, and Joshua should have his hands full on Saturday. Joshua is as hot as a fighter gets at this point in his career, but one slip-up versus Klitschko could end his night and give him his first career loss.
Joshua has never faced anybody of Klitschko’s caliber, and he’s shown nothing in the ring to indicate such a drastic jump up in competition. If he’s competitive, it’s because he has the natural talent to do so, not because any of the last four or five fighters he’s been in the ring with were anywhere near Klitschko.
Below is all you need to know to watch Saturday’s event, as well as a full list of fights on the card.
