Anthony Joshuas IBF-WBA world heavyweight title clash against former long-reigning champion Wladimir Klitschko, announced on Saturday for April at Wembley Stadium, is being tipped to be the biggest in British history.But other heavyweight fights on British soil have also captured the publics imagination. Here, Nick Parkinson runs through the top five -- will Joshua-Klitschko storm in at No. 1?Frank Bruno vs. Oliver McCallAttendance: 23,000 (Wembley Stadium, London, on Sept. 2, 1995)Popular Bruno finally became world heavyweight champion when he captured the WBC crown from Oliver McCall in front of 23,000 at Englands national stadium.It was Brunos fourth attempt at winning a world title and the unanimous points decision made him the third British-born world heavyweight champion after Lennox Lewis and Bob Fitzsimmons.Frank Bruno vs. Lennox LewisAttendance: 25,784 (Arms Park, Cardiff, on Oct. 1, 1993)Bruno hoped it would be third time lucky for him in world title attempts and public opinion was firmly on his side in the first all-British world heavyweight title clash when he challenged WBC champion Lewis.British boxing fans had not taken to Lewis, who was born in London but had a Canadian accent after he moved to Ontario at the age of 12, while Lewis had also called Bruno an Uncle Tom.Bruno was leading on one judges scorecard while the other two had it even when Lewis stopped his compatriot in front of 25,784 at what was then Wales national stadium. Bruno wobbled Lewis in the third but was then hurt by a left hook in the seventh and subsequently stopped.Lewis earned £4m for the fight but pay-per-view figures failed to top a million.David Haye vs. Dereck ChisoraAttendance: 30,000 (Upton Park, London, on July 14, 2012)It was the fight boxing bosses tried to ban and no world titles were on the line but 30,000 turned up at Upton Park, the former home of West Ham United Football Club, to see David Haye and Dereck Chisora settle their festering feud in the biggest British heavyweight bout of the 21st Century so far.The Londoners had clashed at a press conference in Germany earlier in the year following Chisoras loss to Vitali Klitschko. The brawl made front page headlines and they were subsequently banned. But that did not stop the fight from happening and the Luxembourg Boxing Federation sanctioned it.Haye won in five rounds and then retired before making a comeback in 2016. Haye earned £2.5m for the fight that was screened live on a subscription channel.Frank Bruno vs. Tim WitherspoonAttendance: 40,000 (Wembley Stadium, London, on July 19, 1986)Hopes were high that Frank Bruno would become Britains first world heavyweight champion since Fitzsimmons in 1899 when he challenged roly-poly Tim Witherspoon, the WBA champion, on home soil.But a 40,000 crowd, including Ali and Cooper at ringside, was left disappointed as Londoner Bruno succumbed to an 11th-round defeat at Wembley. Bruno, who faded after a promising start, earned upwards of £750,000 for his defeat to American Witherspoon and the fight started at 1 a.m. local time to cater for U.S. television, but it was shown to a huge audience on free-to-air TV the following day in the UK.Muhammad Ali vs. Henry CooperAttendance: 45,973 (Highbury Stadium, London, on May 21, 1966)?The biggest attendance ever for a heavyweight bout on British soil, Our Enry was once again betrayed by cuts as The Greatest made a fourth world heavyweight title defence in front of 45,973 at Highbury Stadium, then home of Arsenal Football Club.Alis accurate blows left Coopers face covered in blood and the fight was stopped in the sixth round, dashing the Londoners hopes of revenge having lost to the American three years earlier.At 32, Cooper was eight years older than Ali, who had won the title in 1964. It was the first world heavyweight title fight in England for 58 years and was front and back page news, while millions tuned in to listen live on radio. Vapormax 97 Italia . "It was nerve-wracking, but we pulled through," said Collaros, who threw four touchdown passes to lead the Toronto Argonauts (8-4) to a 33-27 win over the Calgary Stampeders (9-3) in front of 28,781 fans at McMahon Stadium.
