Anthony Joshua beats Joseph Parker but loses flawless knockout record

Anthony Joshua beats Joseph Parker but loses flawless knockout record

Anthony Joshua is now the WBO, WBA, IBF and IBO heavyweight champion of the world. "They have never picked up the phone", he added.

Being a multiple champion brings with it a range of mandatory fights.

"We would have worked that inside more [without the ref breaking things up repeatedly], but whatever happened here happened".

It's not the first time Hearn has spoken of the difficulties in dealing with Wilder's people, and it likely won't be the last.

What Joshua wants, is what is usually delivered to him by his promoter Eddie Hearn who now faces tricky dealings with the Wilder camp who have been far too greedy with their monetary hopes in earlier attempts to set up the fight. "I'm not in the business of hype, hype, hype, talk, talk, talk". Joshua believes, as a holder of four belts, that he deserves a bigger share of the pie.

Asked about the referee's performance, Parker's trainer Kevin Barry said: "Obviously, when one guy (Parker) has got a 76-inch reach and the other guy has got 84 or 85 (Joshua), it's important when we do close the distance that we are able to work. Why do I have all these belts, just to give someone a bonus". So I knew he was going to be determined. I don't get scared.

'Baaghi 2' has best opening of 2018
The most awaited 'Baaghi 2' starring Tiger Shroff , and Disha Patani , has been released worldwide on Friday, March 31st, 2018. While Baaghi 2 accolades are being showered on Tiger Shroff , a person who desrves them as much is Director Ahmed Khan .

"Throwing the right hand at times would have put me in a position where he could have countered me so I held it back and continued working that left hook".

And that's his problem. Much to their chagrin, Team Joshua might have to relent if their man is to reach his goal. Joshua has so far had all 21 fights in the United Kingdom and his last three bouts have pulled in crowds of 90,000, 78,000 and 78,000 again.

Parker was escorted by Samoan chiefs as he arrived for the biggest battle of a 24-fight career, followed by the home favourite Joshua, whose white robe was lit up by pyrotechnics while he strolled confidently towards his 21st opponent.

Joshua looked typically confident and carried that energy into the ring, often keeping his opponent on the back foot with an accurate ramrod jab and the Kiwi was muscled to the ropes by a crunching combination in the third.

Parker threw a lot more punches than Joshua but landed a lot less. "Parker said this would be war, I said this would be boxing finesse". Just like Wilder does, admittedly in front of smaller crowds. Negotiations over the next few weeks will determine if that happens this summer.
