Anthony joshua vs whyte
It was in the end a fine lesson in the sweet science of heavyweight boxing from Anthony Joshua in front of another 70,000 people on Saturday night at the Principality Stadium. Joshua used his left hand in a dozen different ways to hit, tame and hurt Joseph Parker and at the final bell, the first time Joshua had heard that chime of relief as a professional, his left hand was raised in victory. Joshua now owns the IBF, WBA, IBO and the WBO belts - the last one changed hands in the ring, Parker losing it and his unbeaten record in a fight that was even more tactical and technical than expected. It is nice to see a heavyweight risk-taker like Joshua fight to a strict punch-by-punch agenda. There were some that complained, insisting that both looked reluctant to get hit and each somehow settling for a safety-first distance fight. However, it is hard to stage-manage men with the finishing power of Joshua and Parker; Joshua used his boxing brain, Parker needed to take a risk after about six … [Read more...] about Blood and guts brawls will return but Anthony Joshua vs Joseph Parker showed the noble art of the sweet science

World title fights come down to key moments, split-second decisions in the heat of battle that make or break your dreams. I’ve turned this fight over and over and conclude it has probably come 18 months too early for Joseph Parker. That is not to say he won’t make this a difficult night for Anthony Joshua. He will. And if he fights the perfect fight, he has the tools to win. Parker has real power, and though not particularly fast, is fast enough to have Joshua on the seat of his pants. But overall I don’t think he is seasoned enough, even though he has had four more fights than his opponent. Every fighter matures at a different rate, and it’s about the quality of the opponents faced. Though Joshua started boxing late he had a full Olympic cycle in competition with the best amateurs in the world. Yes, he was fortunate with a couple of decisions at London 2012, but he emerged with a gold medal around his neck. In the professional sphere he was wobbled by Dillian … [Read more...] about Barry McGuigan’s big-fight verdict on Anthony Joshua vs Joseph Parker
