Carl Froch has stated that Anthony Joshua should be prepared to face Wladimir Klitschko at his best.
Klitschko has not fought for over 18 months and he’ll be 41 when he faces Anthony Joshua at Wembley.
The Ukrainian boxer lost his IBF, WBA and WBO world titles to Fury back in November 2015.
“We know Klitschko is an ageing fighter but with age comes wisdom and the experience he’s got,” he told Sky Sports News HQ.
“He’s had 68 fights and he was unbeaten in 10 years as a heavyweight up until he faced Tyson Fury and that was an awkward, torrid night for him.
“He had problems in the background with his wife [Hayden Panettiere] going through post-natal depression and it wasn’t publicised much but if he had something else on his mind, wasn’t switched on and on top of that had someone like Tyson Fury goading him, smiling and doing his weird dance for 12 rounds, he just couldn’t get going.
“We may just see the best – and last – of Wladimir Klitschhko.
“It’s at Wembley Stadium and if he is thinking this is my final fight on this stage – with 90,000 not 80,000 – and if he thinks to himself this is it for me, my exit card, my final fight you know he is going to turn up.”
