ANTHONY JOSHUA’S devastating uppercut to set up his spectacular victory over Wladimir Klitschko will go down in history.
Champ AJ landed one of the greatest punches in boxing history when his huge right connected with the Ukrainian’s chin.
Klitschko somehow did not go down but it was the beginning of the end for the legend, 41.

Slow-motion footage of the punch landing showed just how brutal it was – and makes it even more incredible that the former champion stayed on his feet.
Joshua recorded a TKO victory when the referee stopped it later in the round after the Brit had put the challenger down twice inside a minute.
Joshua’s amazing blow – witnessed by a post-war record 90,000 fans at Wembley – will now enter boxing legend.
And fans on Twitter were quick to react.
Former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson was famous for landing huge uppercuts.
His destructive blow on Jose Ribalta in August 1986 was typical of his raw power and aggression.
And Frank Bruno will certainly have had a Hangover after Iron Mike pummelled him through the ropes a decade later.
Roy Jones Jr is also right up there after landing a sickening body shot on Virgil Hill in 1998.
His wicked right crashed into the challenger’s ribs and sent him tumbling to the canvas in agony.

Brits Ricky Hatton and Amir Khan suffered similar fates in their fights against Manny Pacquiao and Saul Alavarez.
The Hitman was pole-axed by the Phillipino superstar who connected with a fearful left-handed counter smack on the chin.
While Khan walked straight into a lightning right-hook against Canelo with the same result.
AJ has been compared to all-time great Muhammad Ali, who of course makes the cut.
In 1965 Sonny Liston has no answer as the evasive Ali launched a superb right-handed counter from a southpaw stance.
Six years later, he was on the receiving end as power-hitter Joe Frazier cleaned him out with a wild left-hook that Ali somehow bounced up from almost immediately.
Tommy Morrison blunted Razor Ruddock in 1995 after landing a flashing left hook to the chin from nowhere.
Sugar Ray Robinson was known for his movement but also packed a wallop as Gene Fullmer found out in 1957.
Robinson shot out a left so quickly that his opponent had no chance to brace himself – suffering a first KO of his career.
Earnie Shavers and Larry Holmes fought a couple of classic bouts which included an incredible straight right.
In their 1979 meeting, Shavers powered a shot straight through his rival’s defences en route to an 11th-round TKO victory.
Another superb uppercut marked Joe Walcott’s 1951 bout against Ezzard Charles.
Charles managed to get up but keeled over soon later after the blow, which was a perfect combination of speed, power and timing.
