Preview:

Joshua has youth and confidence on his side, whilst Klitschko has all the experience in the world for what is being billed as a match-up to reveal whether the Briton is ready to take over or the Ukrainian has come to the end of the road.

For my money, Klitschko is up against it and will face a barrage from Joshua in the early stages that he may not being able to recover from. Getting through those first four rounds will be key for Klitschko to gain a foothold in the fight, although the determination of Joshua to take his place as the best around may prove too much.

The fight can go one of two ways, but the outcome should see the coronation of a new ruler at the helm of heavyweight boxing.

Make no mistake, Joshua has everything in his locker to do similar to what Klitschko did between 2005 and 2015. The 2012 Olympic champion has all the attributes, dedication and determination to clean up at 200 pounds plus, and beginning on Saturday night, fans are all set to witness the dawning of a new era in the sport.

Klitschko, 41, would have to plant one of his world famous left hooks right on the money to get the job done, although judging by his fight with Tyson Fury, it could be a case of easier said than done.

Joshua v Klitschko will be live on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK with coverage beginning at 6pm.
