Team Klitschko

Mike Tyson

Speaking to Showtime's Jim Gray, the former undisputed heavyweight champion of the World said: "I'd like to see Klitschko win but it's going to be tough. I saw highlights of the other guy Joshua and he's knocking guys out everywhere."

Explaining his reasoning, he added: "If he wins, I win in a strange way because he was in our era. When he goes it means it's over for all of us."

Hayden Panettiere

Behind every great man, there's a great woman –and Klitschko definitely has his. He has been dating 27-year-old Nashville star since 2009 and the couple have a daughter. His fiancee is often spotted ringside for his fights, including his victory over Samuel Peter and the defeat by Fury.

In an interesting turn of events, Tyson Fury himself appears to be supporting Klitschko.

Undecided

Lennox Lewis

"I'd always go with experience and this fight is no different," former heavyweight champion, Lennox Lewis told the Evening Standard. "Everyone says that Joshua is young, hungry and a champion in the making and they're right. He can win but Wladimir has been in this situation times, plus he has more to prove."
