Anthony Joshua (21-0, 20 KO's) added another world title to his collection.
Joshua picked up the unanimous decision win over Joseph Parker to win Parker's WBO world heavyweight title.
The fight took place in front of a sellout crowd at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, United Kingdom.
It was a slow paced fight that saw Joshua worked behind his jab to keep Parker at bay and controlled the action for most of the fight. In a bizarre twist, the referee seemed to discourage exchanges by breaking up the fighters every time the fighters tried to fight from the inside. In the end, Parker became the first boxer to go the distance with Joshua, but it was Joshua who picked up the unanimous decision win with scores of 119-109, 118-110, and 118-110.
With the win, the 28 year-old Joshua now holds the WBA, IBF, IBO, and WBO world heavyweight titles. The only major title Joshua doesn't have is Deontay Wilder's (40-0, 39 KO's) WBC world heavyweight title.
For the 26 year-old Joseph Parker (24-1, 18 KO's), it was the first loss of his career, but he put up a good showing being the first person to go the distance with Joshua.
