BOXING fans enjoyed a knockout night as a world champion came to town.

Fresh on the back of beating Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley last month, British champion Anthony Joshua met fans in the Premier Suite at the Macron Stadium.

The IBF, WBA and IBO heavyweight champion met fans and posed for pictures at the event, with guests also having the chance to grab a boxing glove signed by the man himself.

The lucky people attending the event also got to enjoy a drinks reception, a four course meal, entertainment, an auction and an interview with Joshua.

Hotel staff Danny Clarke, Margaret Graham, Suzanne Speak and Paul Huddy got the chance to pose with the boxer as he held up a personalised Wanderers shirt.
