LONDON: Britain’s heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua says beating Ukrainian veteran Wladimir Klitschko in their mouthwatering showdown for the IBF and WBA crowns next April would entitle him to be called a legend. The 27-year-old 2012 Olympic champion — who defended his IBF title successfully last Saturday against American journeyman Eric Molina — will face off against Klitschko on April 29 at Wembley Stadium and said the bout could be a life-changing experience for him. “A knockout is the cherry on top but to win, whichever way, is very possible,” said Joshua at a news conference also attended by Klitschko at Wembley on Thursday. “This is a fight that can change one from champion to legend overnight.”
