Photos: Anthony Joshua Rocks Kisicek, Sprott Wins Big
York Hall, Bethnal Green, London - Top heavyweight prospect Anthony Joshua (3-0, 3KOs) stopped Hrvoje Kisicek (5-7, 1KO) in two. Joshua was unloading the punishment in the first round. He dropped Kisicek hard off a combination in the second. Joshua started unloading as he pressed Kisicek against the ropes and the referee jumped in. The fight was stopped a little early, but the writing was on the wall with Kisicek looking outclassed from the first minute.
In a battle of two tired fighters, Michael Sprott (40-21, 17KOs) won his second Prizefighter tournament with a three round unanimous decision over Jason Gavern (24-16-4, 11KOs). The scores were 29-28, 30-27 and 30-27.
Sprott had more left in the tank, and outworked a battered Gavern, who had two tough fights leading into the tournament final. Sprott, who previously won the 14th edition of Prizefighter, received his trophy and tournament check from former heavyweight champion Larry Holmes.
