Anthony Joshua Now Holds Three of four major Title belts As He defeats Joseph Parker

Anthony Joshua, took the distance for the first time in 21 paid bouts, and collected a third world title belt when he cruised to a convincing if drama-free win over the WBO champion, Joseph Parker, and looks in good shape to raise his game for what will be a more demanding assignment against Deontay Wilder.

Two judges saw it 118-110, and the third had it 119-109 – a bit harsh on the New Zealander, who might have had a share of the sixth and a shout of stealing the seventh in a fleeting period of success. But the verdict was, overall, fair. It was a technical fight, a clinical victory.

Joshua said in the ring: “I was always going to stick behind the jab, one of the most important weapons in boxing, and kept the right hand up. This is boxing. It’s what we do. Forget the hype. Joseph Parker is a good world champion. As I said before, this would be about boxing. The main thing now is I am the unified heavyweight champion of the world.”

Anthony Joshua’s statement about not needing to conquer America when you have 80,000 people watching you at Wembley is a lesson for everyone in Entertainment. If you rule your kingdom well enough, you can become the global star you wanna be.
