Joshua beats Molina and confirms Klitschko fight

Joshua beats Molina and confirms Klitschko fight
Anthony Joshua defends his IBF heavyweight title for the second time

 

Anthony Joshua can legitimately claim to be the best heavyweight in the world if he beats Wladimir Klitschko in front of 91,000 fans at Wembley Stadium in April, but the quiet man from Watford says he will not be consumed by the temptations that have wrecked so many champions.

 

Joshua could not say if Klitschko would be a tougher opponent than the unbeaten WBC champion, Deontay Wilder, who took nine rounds to get rid of Molina and was watching Saturday’s fight with the Showtime commentary team in America. “I haven’t fought either of them,” he said with a laugh. “I could watch them and say, ‘Wilder does this’ and, ‘Klitschko does that’, but it’s different when you’re in there. In order to beat Klitschko I need to improve to another level.”

 

Anthony Joshua beat Eric Molina by KO in round three.

 

Dillian Whyte beat Dereck Chisora by split decision.

Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko confirm fight at Wembley Stadium on April 29.

 

"What a dream come true," said Parker, who has been touted as another possible opponent for Britain's Anthony Joshua.

 

Anthony Joshua speaking on BBC Radio 5 live: "I was slow and patient and that's all I needed to do. 

"Before the fight I thought Molina could have taken it with maybe or or two shots -his right hook always follows with the left hook but he's not 'a Klitchko', he's not 'a Haye' - I took him out like I should have done.
