Last time British boxing attracted those crowds came in 1939 when Len Harvey duelled with Jock McAvoy

ANTHONY JOSHUA’S heavyweight showdown with Wladimir Klitschko will attract the biggest crowd since post-war British boxing.

Plans to extend capacity at Wembley Stadium have been given the green light meaning 90,000 fans will flock to the home of English football to watch the duo fight it out for the IBF, IBO and WBA Heavyweight Championships of the world.

Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko will face off in front of a joint record crowd at Wembley

The last time English boxing attracted crowds of that number came back in 1939 when Len Harvey went toe-to-toe with Jock McAvoy at White City Stadium.

Crowds are usually kept limited to 80,000 due to network transport reasons.

But London mayor Sadiq Khan has struck a deal with Network Rail and Transport for London so Wembley can max out the allocation.

Boxing supremo Eddie Hearn will promote the fight after he attracted 80,000 for the rematch between Carl Froch and George Groves.

Anthony Joshua says a knockout would be the cherry on top in Klitschko fight

Joshua’s scrap with the dethroned king will take place on April 29 and the Brit will feel full of confidence stopping all 18 opponents inside the distance so far.

Klitschko on the other hand went unbeaten from 2004 to 2015 before he was stunned by Tyson Fury.
