Anthony Joshua: The Boxing Record
Last week, we had an article about Tyson Fury’s boxing record, this week, we’re going from one heavyweight to another in Anthony Joshua. Joshua made his boxing debut in 2013 and that’s where we’re going to start off.
Anthony Joshua made his debut against Emanuel Leo in 2013 which was scheduled for 6 rounds but Joshua knocked him out in the first which started his career off strong and was a sign of things to come.
In Joshua’s fifth fight, he fought Hector Avila in Glasgow, Scotland. He beat Avila by KO in Round 1 extending his KO streak alongside his undefeated streak to 5-0.
His tenth opponent was Michael Sprott who Joshua TKO’ed in the first round. This was a good challenge for Joshua but Joshua just overlooked him and KO’ed him before Sprott could even plan the fight out.
His fifteenth fight was against Dillian Whyte, arguably Joshua’s biggest threat at this point. At the time, Whyte was 16-0 and had a decent KO percentage but he was no match for Joshua. Joshua won in the 7th round after yet another KO win.
On the 29th of April 2017, it was time for Anthony Joshua’s biggest fight yet and of all time. He would fight Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium and the hype was unreal. Joshua would TKO Klitschko in the eleventh round marking Klitschko’s fourth TKO loss and first in 13 years.
Joshua’s most recent fight was against Joseph Parker which Joshua won but not by knockout, but by unanimous decision. This was Joshua’s first win which wasn’t by KO.
It is unknown when Joshua will fight next but apparently there are several fights on the table for the orthodox boxer and I’m sure we’ll see many more to come.
