Anthony Joshua-Yaroslav Zavorotnyi on August 30th

British heavyweight Anthony Joshua enjoyed another short night, stopping veteran Matt Skelton in the second round in Liverpool.

Joshua, who won super-heavyweight gold at the London 2012 Olympics, turned pro last year and has now put together seven straight victories, all inside two rounds.

Skelton, the 47-year-old former British, Commonwealth and European heavyweight champion, was put down by a clubbing right hand to the head late in the second round.

He just beat the count and was briefly allowed to continue before the referee stepped in moments later as the former world-title challenger immediately toppled backwards towards the ropes.

"It's definitely a good name on the record, there's not much point in me fighting guys I'm knocking over all the time," Joshua told Sky Sports.

"Matt was game but the plan worked, I stuck to my jab. I'm learning all the time and, if I keep on progressing, I'll keep getting these first and second round knockouts."

Joshua will return to the ring on August 30 in Dublin against Ukrainian Yaroslav Zavorotnyi, who took David Price 10 rounds on his most recent outing.
