Joshua v Klitschko: the moment boxing’s epicentre moved from Vegas to London

Las Vegas has long been boxing’s most aspirational platform, but the Anthony Joshua-Wladimir Klitschko fight in London may signal a shift in the sport’s commercial centre of gravity

Anthony Joshua lingered in the ring at Wembley Stadium as midnight struck on Sunday morning, bathing in the afterglow of the famous night that saw him write his name indelibly into his country’s rich fistic lore. It had been more than an hour since the 27-year-old from Watford had come off the canvas to violently dispense of Wladimir Klitschko in the most gripping heavyweight title contest since the first bout between Evander Holyfield and Mike Tyson more than a generation ago, yet the former Olympic champion was content to delay his retreat to the post‑fight news conference, instead holding court with the throngs of well‑wishers who refused to disperse, to the chagrin of the harried stadium stewards. It was as if he did not want the night to end. Who could blame him?

• ‘We’re going to box twice a year … The plan is new markets around the world’

Anthony Joshua is about to embark on what he calls phase three of his journey and, whatever his repeated declarations that he is in boxing for fun not money, over the next decade he could bank as much as £500m, drawing him alongside Floyd Mayweather as the biggest earner in the history of his precarious sport.
