As the fight ebbed and flowed, at Wembley Stadium, on Saturday night, it really was edge of the seat stuff.

With no access to the scorecards we could only accept the advice of the numerous TV pundits or form our own opinion on how the three ringside judges were scoring the fight.

After the bout was over, Anthony Joshua admitted that he too didn?t know how it was going and as he returned to his corner, he politely enquired as to how he was doing to his trainer, Robert McCracken.

At this point we?ll let Joshua take up the story,

?About round nine, I said ?How am I getting on? Am I winning?? They didn?t answer, so I thought, ?OK cool, I?ve got to step on the gas a little bit? I didn?t want it to be close, I wanted to go out and dominate.?

And that is exactly what Joshua did when the bell for round eleven sounded. The huge uppercut he caught Klitschko on the jaw with would have toppled most heavyweights in the world and the left-hook that put Wladimir down on the canvas for the second time in a round wasn?t too bad a punch either.

But with the veteran wobbling, Joshua unleashed fifteen punches with none coming back from Klitschko, making the stoppage a very wise one.

I guess that?s called stepping on the gas when it?s needed.
