They are nearly identical in size, 6 foot 6 inches tall, 240-250 pounds in weight, the biggest difference is in age, but along with age comes wisdom and experience something Klitschko will have over the younger Joshua.
The big stage is new to Joshua, will the nerves of fighting in front of 90 thousand hometown fans in London at the famed Wembley Stadium be too much for the 27 year old to handle? or will he shine and take the moment with a memorable fight that would crown him the king of the new era?
