Tonight’s fight between Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium proved the fitness of the two fighters who have been on each other’s neck over the past couple of days as to the one to become the best.
It was a two-way affair. If Anthony wins he adds WBO title from Joseph to his titles and if Joseph wins, he will also amass Anthony’s WBA, IBO and IBF in addition to his own title.
The two stepped into the ring looking energetic enough and making it hard for anyone to decide from afar who was going to win the night and become the champion to be celebrated by the world.
Joseph delivered a strong match for Anthony as he made it hard for him to gain it easily and walk away. Anthony, however, stood his grounds becoming the champion on the night based on points.
Now, there are talks for Anthony to fight WBC heavyweight champion, Deontay Wilder but it is premature to conclude on the certainty of that fight.
