Anthony Joshua: Boxer beats Parker in 12th round to retain heavyweight titles

Anthony Joshua

Anthony Joshua also adds the WBO belt to his title as he chases unification.

Anthony Joshua went the distance for the first time to beat Joseph Parker by unanimous decision and add WBO heavyweight title to WBA, IBO and IBF belts.

In front of 78, 000 capacity crow, the fight at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff went to 12 rounds before Joshua was ruled the winner 118-110, 118-110, 119-109 by the three judges.

This is the Nigerian-Brit’s 21 win as he extends his winning streak although he failed to beat Joshua by a knockout.

The 27-year-old now adds the World Boxing Organisation (WBO) belt to his International Boxing Federation (IBF), World Boxing Association (WBA) and International Boxing Federation (IBF) titles.

For Parker, this was his first loss in his 25-fight pro career.

It was a fight of few clean punches as boxers remained cautious throughout although Joshua was clearly dominant. 

Joshua left a cut above Parker’s left eye in the third round before the New Zealand boxer managed to throw a few more punches.

In the middle rounds, however, Parker attacked more but Joshua defended well and in the 10th round the cut above his left eye got worse.
