Anthony Joshua Demolishes Sprott in One Round

Echo Arena, Liverpool - In a final eliminator for the British heavyweight championship, Olympic gold medal winner Anthony Joshua (10-0, 10KOs) demolished British veteran Michael Sprott (42-23, 17KOs) in the first round. Joshua rocked Sprott with a few punches that sent him stmbling backwards into the ropes. Joshua then jumped on him and unleashed a furry of punches with both hands until the referee jumped in to wave things off.

39-year-old Sprott has seen much better days. He was knocked out in the first round in June by Kali Meehan and also knocked out the first last year by Erkan Teper.  While Joshua is viewed as one of the biggest rising stars in the sport and he might be in line for a world title shot by the end of next year.

[QUOTE=LacedUp;15124232] I still can't believe Wilder fought a final eliminator vs Malik Scott, a guy Chisora knocked out. Makes no sense.[/QUOTE] I couldn't believe that either. If knocking out Malik Scott makes you No.1 with the WBC, how come Chisora…

Can't believe some people are saying Joshua is building his career the same as Wilder. It's literally so stupid. To give you an example, Deontay Wilder fought Matthew Greer in his 27th pro fight. The same guy 19 year old…

They need to move him unto the European level now. Domestic scene is now done unless he fights David Price next.
