The fight went on for 12 rounds and Joshua was controlled, persistent and athletic throughout.

Commentators praised the difference in Joshua’s form and remarked that the weight he has gained improved his strength.

Steve Bunce of BBC Radio 5 said, “AJ was absolutely clinical and he never wasted a shot. That was class and he stuck to his plan. Beautiful to watch. He got it right in spectacular fashion. He is now looking out to the crowd and that is the look he has had all week. He has been steely and nasty.”

Joshua appeared calm and collected before the match; walking into the ring to the sounds of Nigerian instrumentalist Fela Kuti.
