Anthony Joshua Not Fully Pleased With Recent TKO Win

Olympic gold medallist Anthony Joshua's seamless transition to the professional ranks continued on Saturday as he knocked out Dorian Darch in the second round in Cardiff.

The heavyweight was making his fourth professional outing and extended his 100 percent record as he put his Welsh opponent down. Out of 24 rounds he could have boxed since joining the paid ranks, the 24-year-old has been in the ring for just seven of them.

"A few things I was noticing in there when I was getting my jab going and my one-two, but you know how it is, the first round you are just warming into the fight. I was trying to capitalize on some of his weaknesses from early on, but as round two came along I started finding my rhythm. The next fight in March, hopefully you will see a bit of improvement," Joshua said.

He is next slated to fight in Glasgow on March 1.

[QUOTE=Earl Hickey;14196240]he should lose a little muscle. Vitali is a good example of how a super heavy should look imo[/QUOTE] Agreed. He is less ripped than Vlad, and I think that's why he didn't need to worry so much about…
