Joshua v Klitschko: Time of the fight, channel and odds

The fight we've all been waiting for in 2017 has finally arrived but how can you watch it and who is going to win?

When is it?

The fight is on Saturday April 29, 2017. The two fighters' ring walks are expected to be between 21:35 and 21:45, with Klitschko walking out first followed by Joshua about ten minutes later. The first bell is expected at around 22:00 but will depend on how the undercard fights go.

Where is it?

The mega-fight between two of the most in demand fighters in the heavyweight division is aptly going to be in front of 90,000 fans at the home of football, Wembley Stadium in London.

It's only the second time a boxing event has been held in the venue, after Carl Froch and George Groves went head to head for the second time in May 2014. Groves has said this week that he is hoping to finally move past his Wembley experience when he arrives to watch Joshua v Klitschko on Saturday.

What TV channel will it be on?

The fight will be exclusively on Sky Sports Box Office for UK viewers but will be available whether you are a SKY TV customer or not.

What are the odds?

Joshua has been the clear favourite since markets opened for the fight, opening up at 4/7 and is now best priced 4/9. Klitschko has seen significant support through Oddschecker over the last couple of days though and will undoubtedly provide a stern test of the so far unbeaten Joshua's credentials.

Anthony Joshua - 4/9

Wladimir Klitschko - 9/4

Draw - 40/1
