Photos: Anthony Joshua knocks out Dominic Breazeale
Nigerian-born Britain’s IBF world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua defended his title for the first time yesterday at the O2 Arena in London against American Dominic Breazeale.
Tony won with a seventh-round knockout of Dominic Breazeale.
The sold out arena loved every second of the big fight – from entrance to brutal denouement. It was a night on which Joshua was bleeding from the nose himself in the sixth round.
However, two crunching barrages from Anthony Joshua in the seventh round consigned challenger Dominic Breazeale to the canvas.
Joshua extended his professional record to 17 successive wins after this fight while Breazeale suffered his first defeat in his 18th outing.
