Eddie Hearn's Matchroom promotions has confirmed that 50,000 tickets have already been sold for the heavyweight title fight between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko next Spring. 

The bout is due to take place at Wembley stadium on April 29th.

Joshua will look to defend his IBF World Heavyweight title and the unbeaten Briton is currently unbeaten as a professional.

Joshua has stopped all 18 of his opponents and is coming off a third round stoppage of Eric Molina in Manchester on the 12th December.

Klitschko is the former unified heavyweight world champion with a record of 64-4 with 53 wins by knock-out.

He hasn't fought since he was beaten by Tyson Fury in November 2015. The Ukrainian was ringside for Joshua's last fight and the pair confirmed the match-up in the ring after.
