Anthony Joshua defeated Wladimir Klitschko in an epic world title fight in London on Saturday night to claim the WBA and IBF World Heavyweight Championship titles.
The Brit triumphed in the 11th round of a fight that was real roller-coaster ride of emotions.
Both men looked down and out at some point in the fight only to recover before Joshua finally finished off the veteran Ukrainian after catching him with a sweet uppercut in the 11th round.
Predictably the fight garnered more than its fair share of tweets, with fans and personalities alike lining up to congratulate AJ on his achievement.
