Anthony Joshua defended his IBF heavyweight title for the first time with a seventh-round knockout of Dominic Breazeale in London, according to a BBC report.
The unbeaten American was more than prepared for the bout, standing up to some brutal assaults by the champion, who now has 17 knockouts from as many fights.
Breazeale was, however, floored for a second time in the seventh, the referee waved the fight off.
Joshua told Sky Sports: “It’s been tough. I only had two weeks off after my last fight and got straight back in the gym. I can have a nice little break for once and come back with recharged batteries.”
