I'm going.

I think Klitschko will edge it.

Joshua for the win, probably inside 5 rounds.

Not going - had a look at the corp hosp and it's eye watering. Eddie Hearn is going to make out like an absolute bandit. Will watch on PPV

my wife's nephew is going - for his 18th b'day treat - could be monumental or could be a damp squib - K is going to be laser focussed and is hugely experienced - J has the advantages of youth and (silly twitter exchanges with fury aside) seems to have a wise head on those young shoulders - could be great.

If Joshua boxes like he did against Dillian Whyte, he'll take a pummelling. He can't get sucked into a brawl with Klitschko

Not got a ticket yet but may pick something up between now and next Saturday.

Key issue I think is how far on the climb up the mountain is Joshua from the peak, as he will be a better (and more durable agreed) fighter in 2-3 years time. Whereas on the other hand how far down the other side of the hill, past his peak is Klit.

18 months is a long time out of the ring at WK's age, and whilst he took Fury lightly I think and will have done the work this time, I'd edge towards Joshua here.

But could be great, and certainly hard to call.

The only time VK has ever been in a brawl was about 10 years ago and he got battered.

Boxing casuals.... sigh

Interesting one this.
I'll say Joshua to win on the basis K is too past it.

I of course am spending the evening with the in laws who don't have Sky and don't agree with boxing.

Fer feck's sake.
