Joshua v Klitschko: Return to Wembley
When Britain’s Anthony Joshua fought Wladimir Klitschko in front of 90,000 fans at Wembley in 2017, it turned out to be the sporting event of the year. First Joshua knocked the former champion down, then he too was punched to the canvas in a fight that was more dramatic than a Rocky movie. After looking destined for defeat, Joshua produced an astonishing comeback to beat the Ukrainian in an epic 11th round.
Opus has co-produced ‘Joshua Klitschko Return to Wembley’ which sees the two fighters meet for the first time since that dramatic night last April. And in this brilliant new encounter they describe what really happened in the ring that night.
Featuring extended highlights of the fight for the first time on free-to-air television, it provides fans with a brilliant insight into the minds of the two men as well as looking forward to Joshua’s potential defences of his heavyweight crown against fellow Britain Tyson Fury and the American champion Deontay Wilder.
The Opus team captured the two champs meet on the Wembley turf and talk about their epic encounter. The respect and friendship for each other was evident and their memories about that night very insightful.
Tune in to BBC1 on Wednesday 9th May for the first screening at 10.45pm.
