Anthony Joshua destroys Charles Martin in 2 rounds
By Joseph Correa
Anthony Joshua (16-0, 16 KOs) destroys Charles Martin (23-1-1, 21 KOs) inside of two rounds to capture the IBF heavyweight world title.
Round one saw both fighters being cautious early with Joshua turning up the heat towards the second half of the round landing big right hands and leaving Martin looking clueless as to how to defend or return fire.
Round two saw Joshua picking up right from where he left off pressuring Martin before landing a big right hand that dropped Martin. He was able to beat the count but looked shocked about what just happened. The fight resumed after the count and he was dropped again with another big right hand, this time for good as he sat on the canvas looking at the referee before making a half-hearted effort to return to his feet and was ultimately counted out.
This is a big win for Anthony Joshua who continues to show improvement.
