Anthony Joshua looks sensational in stopping Kevin Johnson

By Alex Harding: I’ve followed British boxing for some twenty years now, so there are few things I haven’t seen before. But undefeated heavyweight contender Anthony Joshua (13-0, 13 KOs), including that performance Saturday night in knocking out 35-year-old journeyman Kevin Johnson (29-7-1, 14 KOs) in the 2nd round at the O2 Arena in London, UK, is one of them.

I foolishly thought we’d see him taken into the later rounds for the first time and potentially see that he was quite raw, and not ready for a step up yet. I was wrong. He bullied and blitzed a man who’d got through several world class punchers, 36 fights, 200 plus rounds never being stopped.

And I’m adjusting my outlook on the back of that performance. I don’t think you can beat him by backing up. You’ve got to take the centre of the ring and command his respect with a world class jab and world class power. To that point I already believe there are only a handful of heavyweights out there who can beat him. Continue reading

Brook stops Gavin; Joshua beats Johnson; Selby wins; Linares defeats Mitchell

IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook (35-0, 24 KOs) did what he had to do in destroying his opponent Frankie Gavin (22-2, 13 KOs) in six rounds on Saturday night in retaining his IBF 147lb title at the O2 Arena in London, UK. Brook landed a nice right hand that hurt Gavin. Brook then unloaded his artillery on Gavin until he slumped into the ropes.

Referee Steve Gray stopped the bout at that point without a count. The fight, if you want to call it that, was stopped at 2:51 of the 6th. Gavin was too hurt to continue. The referee would have done him a huge favor if he’d stopped the bout a couple of rounds earlier because this was never a fight to begin with. Continue reading

Khan defeats Algieri

(Photo credit: Lucas Noonan/Premier Boxing Champions) Amir Khan (31-3, 19 KOs) needed a great performance tonight to potentially earn a fight against Floyd Mayweather Jr., but I’m not sure that we saw that with Khan’s 12 round unanimous decision victory against Chris Algieri (20-2, 8 KOs) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

Khan won most of the first six rounds, but Algieri came on strong in the second half of the fight in nailing the British fighter with bone-jarring shots to the head and body. Khan did a good job of holding any chance he could get, and this seemed to slow Algieri down, especially in the 11th and 12th rounds.

Khan was near helpless to Algieri’s lead right hands. The American was able to land that punch frequently, and Khan was powerless to stop it for some reason. In between rounds, Khan’s trainer Virgil Hunter constantly scolded him, showing his unhappiness with the way that Khan was fighting. Continue reading
