so Joshua blew him away inside 2 rounds! Looks like the real deal.

Lucrative fights with Haye and Fury down the line means the British heavyweights are set to dominate the immediate future!

Yeah, they keep on saying "it's his first real test" and then he just blows them away. I don't know how much awkwardness fighting a southpaw actually brings. People seemed to make a huge deal of it, but it was Martin who seemed to find the fight awkward. Coming to Joshua's backyard might have had an effect but AJ clearly looked a number of classes above him. I'm a bit disappointed the fight didn't last longer - to see how awkward it could get for Joshua, but he clearly outboxed Martin in the first round and simply throttled him in the second.

I like Joshua, he seems a genuinely nice guy (outside the ring) and only tends to get involved in talk when poked. In the ring, he just oozes menace.

Re: BOXING

Agree with all that..I would have liked to see how he reacts when someone puts him under pressure..every fight Ive seen of his so far, the opponent has just backed off and he has teed off on them. I want to see hopw he takes a punch (or combination of shots). If he can do that, then he has the tools to become an all-time great...if not then he could easily become Frank Bruno II

To be fair Dillian clocked him with a big one and it wobbled him a bit - but he just protected himself with the jab for a bit and regained composure.
What he has going for him is that he doesn't have any natural disadvantage like height and reach a la David Haye, he's a top athlete, and he's got precision. With the heavyweights there's always a bit of a gamble though. Because no matter how good you are, a well timed punch at your temple by an amateur with enough power can take you out

Brook Vs GGG!!! I'm getting more and more excited for this (which of course, is what the promoters would want).

When it was first announced, I was so disappointed with Eubank Jr for not getting it done, as I felt he had more of a chance, and I felt bad for Brook. I thought "this guy is gonna tarnish his legacy because no one will fight him"

I didn't really give him a shot but the boy is a genius, and he actually is rather big for a welterweight. He actually seems more natural a this weight, however, he isn't used to taking shots from fighters 2 weight classes above where he rules. He's gone and got in with the biggest puncher of them all!

It will be intriguing this, and I hope he pulls it off.

It just shows what a shambles pro boxing is. Amir Khan should have been made to fight Brook, while Canelo should have been made to fight GGG

Really hard fight to call, as both have looked near invincible, however I have to favour GGG slightly as:
1) he is the natural middleweight

2) he is an animal. He hasnt even been taken the distance for 8 years!! :shock:

Bellew vs Haye is going to be more of the same I reckon. I think Brook gave a good account of himself but this? Bellew is a right joker - I mean, why put yourself in that situation with a person who you don't like and who doesn't like you? I think Haye will absolutely destroy him - and I don't think there will be any kind words after the fight

Joshua vs Klitchko ... Now that's a fight that's tough to call! I hope Joshua wins but then you'd really feel for Klitchko - bad way to go if he loses another

I like both fighters but after watching klitchko struggle against fury I think he will struggle hugely against Joshua. I think we may see this fight last probably 6 or 7 rounds. The first few for my money may be a little slow. Joshua will be more conservative than we've seen before but I think he will ease into the fight and the occasion and start landing.
The only thing for me is I've not seen him take a proper punch yet. Klitchko will be a different prospect to his defence than he's ever experienced before. This will be a huge test for Joshua as this is the first real headline fight against a genuine legend albeit an aging legend.

Joshua win 6th/7th round ko

Klitchko is like Mayweather in a sense, he does not get hit. But Joshua only need one punch to the chin and he can knockout an elephant. Joshua has been eased into the top similar to Mike Tyson in fighting easier opponents to build up the hype, altgough in Tyson era boxing had much more quality fighters. If Joshua win this one i can see him rule the heavyweight division for 10 years

It's been a while since 2 fighters of this calibre met in the ring, it should be a treat.

what a fight :) Klitchko was so close to finishing him, i feel bad for the old lion

dog fight and surviving that heavy knock down will bring massive confidence to Joshua
