Also last night on Showtime Boxing International and Sky Sports Box Office, undefeated rising star, and widely considered the future of Heavyweight boxing, Anthony Joshua (16-0, 16 KO’s) defeated Charles Martin (23-1-1, 21 KO’s) to capture the IBF world heavyweight championship.  Joshua is considered the future of the heavyweight division, as he goes from Olympic Gold Medalist, to top prospect, to Heavyweight Champion, in what was only his 16th professional fight.  No one expected this one to last long, as 2 of the worlds biggest punchers went at in in the O2 Arena in London.  Joshua, coming in as the favorite, and in his home country, made quick work of Martin, as he defeated him via 2nd round KO.  Joshua came in behind the jab with a huge right hand that dropped Marin, and seconds later after Martin got up, he repeated the same exact thing again.  This time Martin would not be able to answer the 10 count.  Marin did show enormous class after the fight, as he lifted the hand of his opponent and congratulated him.

The fight was so short and the KO happened so fast.  Here is a recap of the second round of Charles Martin VS Anthony Joshua:
