When I re-watched Fury-Klitschko in a fit of masochism what I saw was how many micro-adjustments he makes. Advances — feints — backsteps — lateral jitters and wiggles.
He looks like an animation with frames missing! Unless he can get into the best shape of his life and soon, I would have to heavily favor AJ. But a fit, determined Fury would make for a really good fight.
Very interesting points there blackbird. I agree that Vitali at his best was better than his brother. And yes, Joshua was a bit exposed.
I believe they both possess the same kind of speed but I have to give a small edge to Joshua for his craftiness. All that being said, it would certainly be a very intriguing fight for sure!
AJ has the edge in power over Fury, too. Emmanuel Steward effectively gave Wladimir a new set of lungs. For Joshua, I think stamina might be less of an issue against others.
It was a big step up — one, arguably, that vaults him far ahead of Deontay Wilder in experience. He did look better than I recall seeing him in two dozen or so fights, including his more adventurous youthful days.
But that is also a way of acknowledging that he really stunk out the joint often. Grab and lean, one-two, grab and lean: He could certainly go on to be second best, clearing out everyone beneath Joshua.
I tip my hat to him for a dominant career but I did not enjoy his work. Looking at the judges scorecards, they all seemed fair to me.
One judge had Klitschko ahead by 2 points. I had it after I think Klitschko was expecting Joshua to run out of gas in the later rounds as you mentioned and as pretty much everyone thought would happen and he was really surprised by the sudden outburst.
Very entertaining fight displaying an old ex-champion in quite good shape and strong desires to be at the top again. A big surprise for everybody and Joshua himself when he hit the canvas but recovery well.
He was an easy prey because was exhausted due to the energy spent in the previous round and probably overweight.
Good experience for him and a learning one for future bouts. The stoppage looks a little bit premature. Yeah, no punches really hit in the final flurry, but the ref certainly took into consideration the 2 knockdowns.
Me too, I think he could have let it go a clean power punch further: However, better safe than sorry. Yeah also it is worth noting the ref gave an awful lot of time to Wladimir after both the last knockdowns so he could tell AJ to back off.
It was a great fight and you focus on the stoppage just to have something negative to say? Sometimes the ref stops the fight a little early and sometmes they wait too long.
And may I add, Klitschko did not complain about the stoppage. As I say below, I think nothing hit in that final flurry, but the ref took into consideration the 2 KD.

Ahead of the fight, Joshua was regarded as the 6th best heavyweight in the world by The Ring magazine , while Klitschko was 2nd behind The Ring champion Tyson Fury.
The website BoxRec had Joshua ranked number 1 in the heavyweight division. Klitschko was not ranked by BoxRec due to inactivity.
In front of a post-war record crowd of 90, in attendance, Joshua won by TKO in the eleventh round. They fought a close and cautious first four rounds.
In the fifth, Joshua came out and barraged Klitschko to the canvas. Klitschko rose up and dominated Joshua for the remainder of the round, battering him and scoring his own knockdown in round 6.
The next few rounds were again cautious, both men wary of each other, until a reinvigorated Joshua attacked Klitschko in round 11, sending him to the canvas.
Klitschko again rose but Joshua knocked him down for a second time in the round, then sent a barrage of punches while Klitschko was against the ropes that made the referee stop the fight.
At the time of stoppage, Joshua was ahead on two judges' scorecards 96—93 and 95—93, and the third judge had Klitschko ahead 95— Come on -- that's what they want to see.
I just want to fight everyone. I'm really enjoying this right now. Prior to the fight, Deutsche Welle called it "the most anticipated boxing match in decades".
After the bout, the fight was met with critical acclaim. Both fighters were praised for their performances, with many critics and fans believing that the fight lived up and exceeded expectations.
The fight, according to The Economist , "will be remembered as a spectacular one, perhaps even as a classic, for its dramatic swings in momentum and the ferocity of the punching" and for waking heavyweight boxing "from a prolonged slumber" during the years of unrivalled Klitschko dominance.
Big respect to Wladimir for challenging the young lions of the division.
