Klitschko eyes Joshua fight in spring

Wladimir Klitschko says he wants to fight British heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua in "March or April".

A planned December bout fell through because the fighters "ran out of time", said Klitschko's manager Bernd Boente.

"That'll be the biggest heavyweight fight for years," former world champion Klitschko, 40, told German newspaper Bild.

The  WBA has yet to state whether its vacant title would be on the line.
Promotor Eddie Hearn initially blamed confusion over the titles on offer and a "minor injury" to Ukrainian Klitschko for the failure to arrange a December date.
