In 2012, Joshua won the Olympic super heavyweight gold medal for Great Britain, become a megastar at home and steamrolled his way to becoming a unified world titleholder. He faced by far the biggest challenge of his career on April 29 when he met former longtime world champion Wladimir Klitschko before a sellout crowd of 90,000 at London's Wembley Stadium in one of the greatest atmospheres ever, and they produced an all-time classic heavyweight title fight that more than lived up to the hype. Joshua survived a knockdown and many difficult moments to score three total knockdowns in a dramatic 11th-round knockout victory as he retained his title and also claim a vacant belt. Klitschko has the right to a rematch, so that very well could be next for Joshua. Whomever he fights it's sure to be an entertaining fight.
