A HEAVYWEIGHT THRILLER STARRING ANTHONY JOSHUA DEFEATS WLADIMIR KLITSCHKO ON APRIL 29, 2017
A heavyweight division passing of the baton occurred during the contest between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko for the IBF and WBA world heavyweight crowns.
Although Joshua sought to establish himself as the dominant force in the sport’s most prestigious division, Klitschko hoped to make one final run as the heavyweight champion. What happened in front of a sold-out crowd at Wembley Stadium was nothing short of a classic.
After dominating his opponent in the fifth round, Joshua appeared to be on the verge of suffering his first professional loss when Klitschko knocked him to the ground in the sixth. But, Joshua was able to get back up and launch a relentless attack.
In the 12th and final round of this fight, Joshua landed a left uppercut that knocked Klitschko to the canvas once more. Despite responding to the referee’s questions, Klitschko was unable to get up on count, the British star launched a barrage at the Ukrainian, sending him tumbling back into the ring and forcing referee David Fields to stop the fight.
April 9, 2016: ANTHONY JOSHUA WINNS HIS FIRST WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT Championship.

Martin nearly managed to answer the referee’s count, but he was soon back on the ground following another devastating right hand from Joshua that ended the fight and allowed him to fulfill his destiny
Anthony Joshua assaulted a boxing referee, and the Misfits show marked a new low for his career.
In the dazzling new tag-team performance by Misfits Boxing, boxing referee Ian John-Lewis, who was demoted as a judge for his contentious scoring last year, made an appearance. In an odd Misfits Boxing tag-team match, a referee who was once hit by Anthony Joshua made an appearance.
Fans were in awe of the spectacle at the Misfits event on Saturday night, which featured the first-ever bout of its sort. But that wasn’t all; astute watchers soon realized that former British boxing referee Ian John-Lewis was presiding over the contest.
By his colleagues, John-Lewis was chosen as the finest boxing referee in the world in 2018. Yet because of his contentious scorecard for Josh Taylor vs. Jack Catterall in February 2022, he had a dramatic fall from grace.
He gave Taylor a score of 111 to 114, and Taylor went on to win in what was at the time considered the largest robbery of the year. John-Lewis’ status as a result was lowered. judge by the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC).
“After an internal examination of the scoring of the Josh Taylor vs. Jack Catterall contest by all three appointed judges, the Stewards of the Board decided to ask Mr Ian John-Lewis to appear before them to explain his returned card,” the Board’s statement after the probe said. The Stewards of the Board downgraded Mr. John-Lewis from an A-Star Class to an A-Class Official after taking Mr. Ian John-explanation Lewis into account.
Ian John Lewis
“Whilst the Board were satisfied that Mr John-scorecard Lewis’s did not affect the overall result of the contest, the Stewards of the Board did have an issue with his margin.”
Following his resignation from the BBBofC, John-Lewis went on to join the lesser-known British & Irish Boxing Authority (BIBA), which prepared him for the Misfit’s appearance. Yet even before his questionable scoring, he was at the center of everything.
The Gillingham referee made history during Anthony Joshua’s professional debut when, while attempting to remove the British boxer from his opponent, he was “bang on the button” by the eventual unified heavyweight champion. Back in 2013, AJ took down the Italian Emanuele Leo in two minutes and 47 seconds, but not before nearly sending John-Lewis into space.
The official recalled at the moment, “I was thinking, ‘He just hit me!’ It all happened in a split second. I was proud of the fact that in all my years as a referee, I had never been punched. Anthony apologised to the referee and afterwards said he had automatically tried to move in front of the Italian because he believed he was about to strike him. No offence intended to the other officials, but some would have been removed.”
“I can take a punch because I’m a big, powerful person, but that was a bang-on-the-button, flat-in-my-face cuff.”
