Anthony Joshua powered to six wins from six professional fights with a first-round blow-out of Matt Legg. The Olympic super-heavyweight champion is navigating his way into the paid ranks and had little trouble at Wembley Stadium on Saturday. Opening the show for the Carl Froch against George Groves rematch, the 24-year-old knocked Legg out with an uppercut after just one minute and 23 seconds.

"It's brilliant to fight at Wembley on a night like this with all these people here," Joshua said. "It's a small ring and I knew I could land on him."

Promoter Eddie Hearn revealed former world title challenger Matt Skelton (28-8, 23KOs) could be Joshua's next opponent for July 12th in Liverpool.

He's old and past it.... but a lot of experience against a 6 fight guy. If he was like 12+ I wouldn't be as skeptical... but at this stage, you never know. The last guy Legg... he was landing good... until the KO

Will Barry Hearn be searching senior citizens homes for Joshua's next opponent after Skelton?

Good test for Josh. If he looks good against Skelton, then it should be Sprott and maybe even Harrison after that. Not that anyone wants to see Fraudley in a big fight again, but the idea of two HW Olympic gold medalists being matched up is pretty cool.

Good fight because I've heard of Skelton
