Anthony Joshua vs. Joseph Parker - CompuBox Punch Stats

Although Anthony Joshua and Joseph Parker boasted a combined 38 knockouts in their 44-0 record, their four-belt unification bout was a war of nerves fought at long range.

Joshua exploited his six-inch reach advantage by out-jabbing the retreating Parker 93-49 despite throwing 46 fewer jabs. The jab comprised 70.5% of Joshua's total output and 66.9% of his total connects while it made up 64.2% of Parker's output and 48.5% of his total connects.

Joshua also landed more body shots than Parker, a body-shot specialist, as he led 46-40 in that department, including 29-11 in body jabs. Scoring: 118-110 (twice), 119-109, probably due to his superior ring generalship and his ability to keep Parker on the back foot. Joshua landed an avg. of 12 of 32 per round (hvt. avg.: 15/45) after going 15 of 44 in his previous 6 fights.

Joseph Parker has surrendered his WBO heavyweight world title following a 12-round fight with unbeaten Brit Anthony Joshua at Cardiff's Principality Stadium.

The 26-year-old Aucklander became the first man to stretch Joshua, who moves to 21-0, the full 12 rounds but was defeated by unanimous decision on Saturday.

The Watford-born 28-year-old now holds the IBF, IBO, WBO and WBA belts. Two of the three judges scored it 118-110 in Joshua's favour with the third giving it to the London Olympic champion 119-109.

There were few clean punches in a tense opening stanza as both boxers felt each other out, an energetic Parker however unable to stop Joshua dominating the middle of the ring.

A cut above Parker's left eye was evident from the third round on as he was again forced to expend energy trying to move a steadfast Joshua around.

A crowd of almost 80,000 was on hand at Wales' national stadium with American legend Sugar Ray Leonard and former Chelsea and Netherlands striker Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink among those ringside.

[QUOTE=chicken-;18627459]That fight only reinforces the notion that Klitchko was an old man by the time AJ got to him and he was nearly knocked out by Wlad. He's going to have his hands full vs Wilder. AJ has no head…

Very bad performance by the weightlifter. He obviously won but looked clumsy and again ran out of gas early.
