News Image
The BBC has announced an exclusive documentary into one of Britain's major sporting superstars in the final days before one of the biggest fights in recent history - the Joshua v Klitschko world title fight.

The film tells the story of the final hours leading up to the fight as Anthony says farewell to his family and friends. It includes intimate insight into the young champion at home the night before the fight and in his dressing room as the clock ticks down to the opening bell.

The third film from Goalhanger Films with unique access to the young fighter as he rises to the pinnacle of boxing’s most dangerous division, this new documentary includes a dramatic extended sequence featuring all the key action from the fight along with Anthony's own fascinating narration and analysis of the biggest test of his career so far.

Alison Kirkham, Controller of Factual Commissioning, said: "This revealing documentary gives viewers an extraordinary insight into Anthony’s biggest fight to date and the physical and mental preparation it took to take on a world champion - and win.

"Having followed his rise to the top in our two previous films, this new documentary gives a unique perspective on his victory through Anthony's post-fight analysis. It's the perfect reminder of why he's such an exciting fighter as he prepares to take to the ring once more."

Tony Pastor, Executive Producer, Goalhanger Films, also said: "I can't remember a more talked about sports event in recent times. It was like watching Rocky but for real. In this film Anthony explains what really happened inside that ring and it makes truly compelling viewing."

Anthony Joshua will defend his world title belts in Cardiff against Bulgarian challenger Kubrat Pulev on 28 October.

Anthony Joshua: The Fight of My Life was commissioned by Charlotte Moore, Director of Content and Alison Kirkham, Controller, Factual Commissioning. It is being made by Goalhanger Films where the Executive Producer is Tony Pastor.

The 40 minute documentary, Anthony Joshua: The Fight of My Life will be shown on BBC One on Wednesday 18 October at 10.40pm.
