Boxing: Anthony Joshua Secures Another Knockout Victory
Nigeria-born British Boxer, Anthony Joshua is not just winning his bouts but he has been knocking out his opponets.
His latest victim is France-based Cameroonian boxer, Carlos Takam who kissed the canvas in the tenth round on Saturday's fight at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff.
Takam became Joshua’s 20th consecutive knockout victim in a fourth defence of his IBF belt and first of his WBA title, but the challenger stubbornly resisted the champion after being cut by the right eye in the fourth round.
“It was a good fight until the ref stopped it. I have the upmost respect for Takam,” said Joshua, who injured his nose from a headbutt in the second round.
“Imagine if it’s broke and I couldn’t breathe and he started catching up in the middle rounds? It would have been a disaster, so I kept my cool. You have to control these situations because, if I showed any signs of weakness, the ref could have jumped in," he added.
It had been announced that a delegation from Nigeria embarked on a jamboree to Cardiff to 'cheer' Joshua to victory.
The delegation was meant to be made up of the Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, Solomon Dalung and Lai Mohammed among others.
