Joshua has won all 18 of his professional bouts since his gold medal triumph at the 2012 London Olympics. It will be the third defence of his IBF title after victories over Americans Dominic Breazeale, and Eric Molina.
The pair will also fight for the vacant WBA belt which was relinquished by Tyson Fury as part of his decision to focus on his medical treatment and recovery.
This will be Joshua’s second fight at Wembley Stadium, following his victory over Matt Legg as part of the Carl Froch v George Groves undercard in 2014.
Klitschko will be out to reclaim the IBF and WBA belts he lost in a shock defeat to Briton Tyson Fury in November 2015. The Ukranian has won 64 of his 68 pro fights in a highly-decorated career that started back in 1996.
“This is the fight the boxing world has been waiting for,” said Adam Smith, Sky Sports’ Head of Boxing.
“Can the young lion, Anthony Joshua, rise to the challenge and conquer the former and long reigning king of the heavyweights Wladimir Klitschko? It is one of the biggest fights in the most glamorous division and it is on. At Wembley Stadium! What a stage for our sport, what a build-up in store and what a night it’s going to be on April 29th.”
