While Sky is the main destination to watch the fight in the UK, there are also options in other parts of the world. The fight is being broadcasted in Germany by RTL, and in the US the fight will be available to watch via HBO and Showcase.

If you want to tune in yourself you will want to see this list that includes how best to do so, and what to expect.

When?

The fight is tomorrow, Saturday the 29th of April 2017, and the fight itself is set to begin at 22:00 BST.

The actual time for the beginning of a fight such as this can be subject to alterations, this is predominantly down to the undercard. The undercard is the compilation of other fights set to take place prior to the main event.

Are you decided on who you want to win?

The British Olympic gold medalist, Anthony Joshua, will be firm favourite for many in the UK. He is the embodiment of youth, exuding confidence, ferocity and hunger for victory, claiming himself that victory against Kitschko will be another step toward greatness.

Wladimir Klitschko stands firm in the path of Joshua however, representing experience, and skills honed in a long and successful career. The question is, can wisdom beat the power of youth? This is in no way denying Klitschko’s power, as he has won 64 out of 68 total fights, and 53 of those wins were by KO.
