Anthony Joshua believes Wladimir Klitschko will order a rematch with him because he will want to go out on a high.

It is expected Klitschko will activate the rematch clause despite reports he is considering retiring at the age of 41.

Joshua is currently at the peak of his powers as the new mega-name in boxing after becoming a unified world champion last month at Wembley.

But the 27-year-old insisted if he was in Klitschko’s shoes he would be eager to fight again.

‘If I was in his position I would fight again, but I’m not Wladimir and I do not know what he wants to do’, Joshua said at a fan Q&A over the weekend.

‘But, if I was speaking to Wladimir, I would say: ‘mate, it was a phenomenal performance, you were very good, but you did not win.

‘Leave on a high and let the other guys do what they’re doing.’

He added: ‘The type of fight it was, he probably thinks he can beat me and he has nothing to lose.’


Eddie Hearn is already planning for the possibility of a rematch later this year and has said Cardiff is the likely destination for a second fight.

Joshua was close to being finished mid-way through the Wembley battle before the Brit eventually stopped Klitschko in the eleventh round.

A redo clash would be held in another stadium after Wembley sold 90,000 tickets to set a new record for attendance at a boxing match on British soil in the post-war era.
