Joshua Vs Breazeale Navigation menu VideoANTHONY JOSHUA v DOMINIC BREAZEALE - OFFICIAL WEIGH IN \u0026 HEAD TO HEAD
Anyway, Chris Jr is really making waves in the world of prizefighting and is on the cusp of real stardom now. In the days before this bout, promoter Eddie Hearn has revealed they have held talks about a possible fight with GGG.
But if he fails to do the business tonight against Tom Doran, those plans will go down the toilet. No pressure, then. This undercard has been added a bit of extra spice by the inclusion of Conor Benn, who is now in the ring.
In case you missed it earlier this week, Benn was involved in an angry confrontation earlier this week with Chris Eubank Sr during a pre-fight press conference.
Everyone will be hoping his fight game is as good as his smack talk. And it is - Radic is KOd in the first round! The Czech is given oxygen on the canvas but seems to be OK.
Thank goodness. By Joshua Evans. Thanks for joining us! Well, that was a brilliant evening of boxing at the O2 Arena. A ringside view Anthony Joshua produced a classy display to knockout tough American Dominic Breazeale and make a successful first defence of his IBF world heavyweight crown.
As a fighter, however, he is not a patch on Joshua, just a tough, tough man with a solid chin. By the end of the round that eye was black and puffed up as Joshua stepped up the pace.
Carl Froch's reaction Anthony Joshua wins by KO! Anthony Joshua retains his IBF title with another knockout! With the American backed into the corner, Joshua finished the job in typically impressive style.
Round six A little hiccup for Joshua, as Breazeale bloodies his nose. Round five Joshua is walking forward, landing one punch at a time.
Having said that, Joshua has won every round so far. Round four Another round to Joshua, who has dominated since the opening bell without managing to put his opponent on the canvas.
The speed difference is clear, though, and Breazeale is surviving on courage alone. Round three Joshua continues to dominate, but he is still unable to get the unbeaten American out of there.
Round two Joshua almost stops it in the second round. Breazeale already looks like a worried man. Round one Breazeale makes it through the first session, as Joshua takes his time to find his range.
No major dramas in that round, though. Let's get it on! The introductions are done and dusted.
Breazeale was not happy with the referee attempting to assist him while he was down, as he pushed him away angrily.
Referee Howard John Foster stopped the fight officially at of the 7th round. After Breazeale got up, Joshua nailed him with some tremendous shots to the head that sent him down for the second and final time in the round.
Breazeale looked like he wanted to try and get up, but he was clearly far too hurt for him to make it to his feet. Breazeale was staggered badly in round 2 from a hard right uppercut from Joshua.
The punch sent Joshua scurrying across the ring on shaky legs. Breazeale did a good job of recovering in between rounds to come back and continue to take punishment in round three.
Joshua trapped Breazeale against the ropes in the round, but the American fighter was able to land some nice right hands that caused Joshua to back off.
Joshua was nailing Breazeale with a lot of jabs and left hooks that were doing a number on his eye. Joshua a huge left hook to the head of Breazeale late in the round that caused sweat to fly into the audience.
Breaeale had almost completely stopped punching by the 5th. He was just throwing jabs and looking to land punches when he was backed against the ropes.
Murray comes over the top with a counter right though to answer back, but Groves comes back with a clever uppercut as Murray comes forward. Good round for Groves.
Murray lands a solid jab early on and then manages to get Groves up against the ropes where he lands a few shots as his opponent covers up.
Murray continues to come forward and a cut opens up above Groves' left eye, but it may have been from a clash of heads. The referee warns Murray to watch where his head is going, but Murray will be happy with that round nonetheless, finishing with a nice inside right before peppering the body against the ropes.
Murray is being far too defensive here, perhaps because on his few attacks Groves has answered. The St Helens' man throws a nice left uppercut in a rare exchange in the pocket though.
Groves responds with a counger left hook before they begin to exchange a little more willingly. Murray seems to have had a fire lit under him and steps forward, before he is beaten back by that jab and a body shot.
Fairly even round probably goes to Groves. Murray looks tentative as he is on the back foot, failing to answer Groves' jab as he keeps his guard high to prevent it finding a home.
When Murray does attack Groves counters with a combination that skims off the forehead. Not much action again in that round but Groves is the one looking more comfortable.
Groves takes the centre of the ring stalking Murray with his famed jab. Murray is the first one to time a nice straight one off the lead hand though.
Nothing clean really landed in a cagey opener but controlled by Groves who probably edges that one. A battle of north and south here with these two.
They're underway in this super middleweight bout! Carl Froch said Groves should weigh about a stone more than Murray but fancied the year-old to be a tough test for his former rival.
Bring on Gennady Golovkin. But Eubank was at the most impressive best in his career thus far. He had vowed there would be no mercy for the next man up despite the trauma of having sent Nick Blackwell to hospital in a coma in his previous.
I feel I'm at world level now I feel like I can be challenging for world titles. People think you're indestructible. You're not and I'm coming.
Anybody out there with a world title you're getting it. Eddie Hearn said he expects the Golovkin fight to be signed next week, while dad Eubank Snr said: 'Golovkin should be, if he's clever, watching this young man here.
Eubank showboats a bit after those two knockdowns before another uppercut, which has been the shot of the fight, drops Doran for a final time.
This time it's the body shots that see Doran down. He's back up and then down again seconds later Doran is throwing wild hooks but isn't landing cleanly as Eubank ducks and weaves.
The champion responds with a lovely combination with bodyshots and uppercuts which turns into a relentless assault up against the ropes. He pressures the Welshman into letting an uppercut through which drops him.
Doran gets back up but looks shakey as he goes to his corner. Doran is open for Eubank's jab every time and gets his nose bloodied early in round two.
The Welshman does well with lovely counter hooks though, landing a left and then later a right. Eubank establishes his range again though and beautifully evades Doran's swings whle popping the jab.
Another round for Eubank. Very strange start to the fight with mind games from Eubank. He stays in his corner and beckons Doran on but is told off by the referee as the first exchange is held up.
Eubank lands a lovely uppercut but then takes a stumble before shaking it off with an Ali-like jig. The champion then establishes the jab with a minute to go, landing three stiff ones in quick succession.
Doran doesn't look fazed though and times a few nice shots of his own before the round ends. That one goes to Eubank though who landed far more. We've just seen Chris Eubank Jr warming up with his father in the dressing room and Michael Buffer is on the mike.
Eubank faces a much tougher test than the son of his dad's old rival, in the shape of undefeated Welshman Tom Doran.
As if there weren't enough big hitters at the O2 tonight Rory McIlroy is in the house, fresh from his disappointing display at US Open.
One thing McIlroy won't have in common with the two men in tonight's main event is being Olympians, after the Northern Irishman withdrew from the games in Rio due to fears over the Zika virus.
McIlroy will surely have watched his countrymen get knocked out of the European Championship against Wales earlier today and will be hoping for a more rousing performance from Anthony Joshua tonight.
It was time for me to really take my time today and really start learning how to box,' the year-old said. He climbed back to his feet but a perfectly timed right wasn't seen by Benn's dazed opponent and rocked his head back brutally, knocking him out cold.
Anthony Joshua is in the building and looking relaxed as he has all week ahead of his first title defence. The year-old was returning from shoulder surgery and a seventh-round knockout loss to Anthony Joshua in December but wasn't completely satisfied with his performance against a late replacement.
Hibbert put up a good fight but was battered and bloody by the midway point and the referee had seen enough as the Italian laid it on the Briton.
A good evening to all and welcome to our live coverage of tonight's action at the O2 Arena, where Anthony Joshua will defend his world heavyweight title for the first time against Dominic Breazeale.
Joshua has promised to put on a show in his fifth successive fight in his home city, but the undefeated American will be looking to defy the odds and provide a massive upset in front of a partisan crowd.
Before that we'll be providing round-by-round updates from the O2 in a crucial all-English super middleweight clash between George Groves and Martin Murray, which follows another battle of Britain which sees Chris Eubank Jr defend his British title against Welshman Tom Doran.
The champion then followed with a lightning combination at the end of Round 1 that left the American floundering. Joshua staggered Breazeale with a huge left hook in the first 30 seconds of the second round, then hurt him again late with another left that sent Breazeale reeling around the ring, although he survived the onslaught.
Breazeale, 30, came out for the third round sporting a black eye and bloodied nose, but he continued to show a solid chin as Joshua landed almost at will working behind his jab and firing stinging shots with his left hook.
Joshua was making the first defense of the world title he won in April with a second-round KO of 6-foot-5 American southpaw Charles Martin, who went down without much resistance against the 6-foot-6 British slugger.
The 6-foot-7 Breazeale certainly proved that he could take a shot, though, and started to fire back with some combinations of his own in Round 5, but Joshua just seemed to shake off the best the challenger could deliver.
Joshua was taken into the seventh round for just the second time in his career, but he would not have to go much farther as his power began to break down the challenger.
Anthony Joshua used his jab to set up his power punches against Dominic Breazeale on Saturday as he earned a seventh-round KO in London to retain his heavyweight world title.
