Heading into the 12-round heavyweight contest on April 19 with the IBF, IBO and WBA world titles on the line, 27-year-old British boxer Anthony Joshua was the overwhelming favorite with the bookmakers because of his undeniable talent and surrounding hype.

Joshua, the young lion, took on the veteran Klitschko who was looking to regain the heavyweight crown he once held for nearly 11 years and defended 22 times.

Tyson admitted he knew little about Joshua before the fight but insisted that he exhibited all the qualities necessary to be a long-serving champion.

It came after Joshua was floored for the first time in his professional career and the unbeaten heavyweight is now comfortably the biggest name in boxing.

"An astonishing round in this heavyweight fight of the ages", said Smith, just in case you'd missed it a minute ago, and with Deontay now alongside him and Carl Froch, Wilder explained what was going on: "This is heavyweight boxing, ladies and gentlemen".

In Tyson's own words, one fighter has seemingly altered what was a bleak landscape for boxing.

"I think that if he wants to show that this is the way he wants to go out, like I wanted to do with no regrets, I think he deserves and [has] paid his dues to be able to write the script for how he wants to go out, [rather] than how he went out [against Joshua]".

"I'll have a few comeback fights, two or three, while I'm waiting for Joshua".

"I will play with Joshua like a cat with a ball of wool - hands behind my back, making a right mug of him".

"He's 41, it's a young man's game, if Klitscho wasn't 41 he'd definitely beat him". I am the outlaw so people love to hate me.

"The best man won tonight, and it's an wonderful moment for boxing", Klitschko said in a post-fight press conference.

"The performance and features of the Range Rover SVAutobiography Dynamic espouse the attributes of an elite athlete like Anthony Joshua: distinctive style, powerful at heart and a jaw-dropping combination of performance and capability", he said. I just want to fight everyone.

"That's what fighting needs". When you go into the trenches that's when you find out who you really are. WBC and WBO World Champions - Deontay Wilder and Joseph Parker - have also expressed interest in the fight.

"I've had my turn and done my stuff, no way will I be coming back".

"I see the comparison, sure", Tyson added.

"Of course we have a rematch in the contract".
