Klitschko nailed Joshua with hard shots by the ropes and in the following rounds continued to get the better of Joshua, who was going past the 7th for the first time and appeared gassed.
It came after Joshua was floored for the first time in his professional career and the unbeaten heavyweight is now comfortably the biggest name in boxing.
The retired American boxer also claimed not to have known Joshua before the fight against Klitschko, but according to him, the new boxing king has all qualities necessary to be a long-serving champion.
As a heavyweight, his profile has been enormous for years but after triumphing over future Hall of Famer Klitschko in one of the greatest heavyweight title fights in modern history, 'AJ' has gone stratospheric. They won't pay for it, they want the best and the best is Joshua.
"I'll have a few comeback fights, two or three, while I'm waiting for Joshua".

He added: "Joshua was supposed to walk right through him as he was old and useless supposedly, but it didn't work like that did it?" Klitschko is 41 and no one has ever done that to him. And while the former "Baddest Man on the Planet" is a keen follower of the UFC - noting bantamweight champ Cody Garbrandt as one of his favourite fighters to watch - he believes the balance of power is tipping back in boxing's favour.
Joshua earned $15 million from the Klitschko fight and now stands to earn more on the strength of the dramatic win. That's what boxing is all about but most fighters just don't have that hunger.
"Joshua was massive before the Klitschko fight but that's taken him to another level".
We'd love to see the big Tyson Fury or Deontay Wilder showdown but fear the mandatory challenger situations may have to be dealt with, before we get what we want. You're going to be financially challenged, scholastically challenged.
"I really don't think Deontay Wilder would be a good fight for Joshua, I'd much prefer to see him fight Mike Perez". I saw him at Bethnal Green before the Olympics and he was a nobody back then - people were walking past him. No, not Garth, this was Deontay Wilder, nothing to Gene, who was quite keen on fighting the victor and thus was being very polite and saying all the right things. "In boxing we have one discipline but we use it in different ways but in MMA there's so many different disciplines, it opens up so many different ways to win".
