Anthony Joshua Remains Un-Defeated

Watford's Olympic boxing champ, Anthony Joshua, has vowed to "walk through Tyson Fury" after winning the IBF world heavyweight title following a second-round knockout of Charles Martin at the O2 Arena
Joshua needed just one minute and 32 seconds of the second round to end the American's reign.
A powerful right hand sent Martin to the canvas midway through the round and even though Martin beat the count, he would not when he was immediately put down again.
The 26 year-old said:
"The promoters are going to do their promoting, the fighters are going to do their fighting and the public are going to do their talking and I'm going to keep on walking.
I'm going to walk through Tyson Fury when's he's ready. I'm not messing around believe you me.
Scrap all this 16 fight nonsense. I'm training hard and I mean business. I'm here to stay and I want to make some real noise in this division.
That belt. I got big respect but I want to do more. If I get too carried away I feel that I'll get complacent. So let's put that bad boy away.
Let's put that with the Olympic medal and let's go on and get more and keep entertaining these boxing fans.
That's what I'm here to do. I'm young, I'm fresh and honestly I'm looking forward to getting back in the gym.
I have got skill. I'm not just some beach body boxer. I train hard and this is just the results. IBF champion and I'm very, very happy. I'm happy for the UK as well."
