Joseph Parker favourite to fight Anthony Joshua next

Joseph Parker favourite to fight Anthony Joshua next”

"When you start catching them flush, you know they can feel the shots, and so he was tough", Joshua, who won the title by beating Charles Martin in his previous fight, told reporters.

In a first defence of the IBF world heavyweight title, which Joshua won just over two months ago, the Briton finished Breazeale with two knockdowns from vicious combinations that the American could not resist. On Saturday night, Joshua pounded out a seventh round knockout of previously undefeated Dominic Breazeale.

Joshua sent Breazeale to the canvas early in the seventh round with a flurry that included a hard right cross that did most of the damage.

Speaking after extending his record to 17 knockout wins from 17 fights, Joshua said his priority remains a unification bout with fellow Brit Fury, the current WBA and WBO champion.

He got up that time but soon after, at 1min 01secs into the round, a barrage of blows rained in on the American and ensured his fight was over. Joshua has always been linked with an all British heavyweight contest with Fury since his breakthrough in the division, and is 4/5 with Betway should a potential fight get the go ahead in the future.

Joshua was asked about Joseph Parker bout with Frenchman Carlos Takam, he said that Parker should have knocked out Takam. "I get a nice little break for once and then I can come back with recharged batteries".

Joshua showed reasonable patience throughout the opening round, frequently landing left jabs and the occasional hurtful right, even showing a previously-unseen head movement to evade a Breazeale counter.

But at the weigh-in in Covent Garden on Friday, the champion said "the objective is to get him out as quickly as possible".

Joshua has yet to be beaten or go the distance after 16 pro fights - he's gone past the third round only once - and his handlers would love him to earn experience from more competitive rounds.

However, having postponed his July 9 rematch with Wladimir Klitschko on Friday (Saturday NZ time) due to a ankle injury, it has since been reported that Fury is the subject of a doping investigation.
