Joshua v Klitschko 29/04/2017

Sky Sports Box Office

The running order for this month’s huge heavyweight title clash between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko has been completed.

Matchroom Boxing’s undercard features Scott Quigg facing Viorel Simion at Wembley Stadium Connected by EE as the event goes live on Sky Sports Box Office April 29th at 6pm.

Quigg boxes at Featherweight for the second time having landed the WBA International title in his first fight at his new weight in December in Manchester with a ninth round stoppage.

London represents another first for Quigg as the one-time world title holder has future hall of fame trainer Freddie Roach in his corner for the first time as he takes on Simion. The WBA have sanctioned the fight as an eliminator.

At lightweight, Luke Campbell MBE will take on Darleys Perez, also in an eliminator for the number one position with the WBA.

Campbell defended his WBC Silver title for the second time in February with a second round demolition of Jairo Lopez in his hometown of Hull, following hot on the heels of his impressive stoppage win over Derry Mathews in October in Liverpool.

Olympians Lawrence OkolieJoe Cordina and Josh Kelly are all given places to shine on the massive card.

The trio represented Team GB in Rio last summer before turning to the paid ranks, with Okolie the first to make his debut and in spectacular fashion in Manchester earlier this month.

Okolie has been pitted against Russ Henshaw, whilst Kelly fights Faheem Khan after making is pro bow in Glasgow on the undercard of Ricky Burns’ World Super-Lightweight title unification battle with Julius Indongo earlier this month.

Cordina claimed the number one slot in a draw between the three former amateur stars this week and will open the show opposite Sergej Vib
