TalkTalk TV has recruited boxing legend Frank Bruno to whip up excitement ahead of Anthony Joshua's fight with Wladimir Klitschko.

The two boxers will be competing for the IBF, WBA (Super) and IBO heavyweight titles on Saturday April 29th at Wembley.

TalkTalk TV customers will have the chance to watch the fight via Sky Sports Box Office on channel 416 for a cost of £17.95 from 6pm, while every punch and jab will be repeated at 9am and 4pm a day later.

Subscribers to TalkTalk Plus TV will also have the option of recording the fight and watching it until 11pm on April 30th.

In the run-up to the fight, Frank Bruno is starring in a new video depicting him with his son Franklin sharing tips for so-called armchair boxers.

The pair will offer advice on how to deal with matters such as pre-match preparation, embracing the passion of watching a fight and how to unwind after the fight.

Aleks Habdank, Managing Director of TalkTalk TV, commented: "We know how excited the nation is about what promises to be the biggest fight of the year and who better to share their tips for watching it at home than British boxing legend Frank Bruno and his son Franklin.

"We’re passionate about giving our customers access to all the best sporting events. That’s why all TalkTalk TV homes can watch the fight from the comfort of their own armchairs at a knockout price."

Bruno added that watching a match can be very emotional regardless of whether it is being watched ringside or from an armchair at home.

"I’ve been known to get up and shout, or body pop and breakdance as if I’m in the ring myself," he revealed.

Bruno added that he believes Joshua has a good chance in the fight, as he is a very powerful puncher who has got "youth on his side".

However, he said Klitschko is "a great fighter" whose experience in big matches could help to see him through.
