– Joshua has successfully defended his IBF world heavyweight crown

– The 26-year-old knocked-down Breazeale in the seventh round

– The boxer will face Zealand’s Joseph Parker next

The British professional boxer produced a classy display to knockout tough American Dominic Breazeale in the 7th round of their clash.

The 26-year-old dropped Breazeale – only the second man to take him past three rounds – in the seventh with a huge left, right combination.

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.

Both boxers lived up to expectation with exceptional displays, but Joshua showed he could handle the extra distance as he needed someone who could take him into the middle rounds.

Joshua will now take on Zealand’s Joseph Parker, the IBF’s mandatory challenger, but will take a couple of weeks off.

Recall that Joshua had entered the ring for his last fight against Charles Martin wearing what he described as an old-school white robe, a nod to the apparel of Ali’s day, and he returned wearing the same last night to face the challenge of Breazeale.

The American stood firm though but as Joshua jabbed away he wasn’t going to stay there and finally he crumbled in the seventh.
