British world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua says Wladimir Klitschko is the hardest puncher he has ever faced in his boxing career.
Joshua was floored four times by Andy Ruiz who handed him his first career defeat last year.But Joshua insists Klitschko hit him harder when he dropped him in their 2017 battle.
When asked the question on the Pound For Pound Podcast, Joshua hesitated and then replied: “Who’s hit me the hardest? Yeah, Klitschko.
“I was gonna say Ruiz, but when he hit me that was like a concussion on the back of my head.
“When I went in with Klitschko, yeah, I just knew this could go two ways.
“I could either win or I’m gonna be laid out on my back. You know when you get carried out on a stretcher?”
JJoshua eventually stopped Klitschko in round eleven after a hectic couple of middle rounds in which he exchanged knockdowns with the legendary champion.
Joshua put the Ukrainian down in the fifth before being flattened by a right hand three minutes later.
Referencing that famous punch, he continued: “It was the 15 that came after that as well.
“This guy’s a beast, he’s a beast.”
