WLADIMIR KLITSCHKO, the holder of WBO, WBA and IBF heavyweight titles, has been sparring with fellow Olympic gold medallist Anthony Joshua in his current training camp.

Klitschko, a dominant champion and clearly regarded as the best heavyweight in the world today, is preparing to defend his titles against Kubrat Pulev on September 6 at the O2 World Arena in Hamburg, Germany.

Klitschko won his Olympic gold medal in 1996. Joshua, who triumphed at London 2012, is just starting out his professional career. 7-0 (7) so far, this kind of sparring will provide invaluable experience. Joshua is expected to box on the September 13 show in Manchester.
