IBF heavyweight ruler Anthony Joshua proved way, way, way too strong, powerful and effective for challenger Eric Molina tonight in Manchester. AJ improved to 18-0(18) with a seemingly easy 3rd-round stoppage win over a negative/intimidated Molina. Joshua’s powerful right hand decked Molina and the follow-up barrage brought about the end.
Time was 2:02. Molina falls to 25-4(19).
There is no shortage of boxing action this weekend, with a number of big and important fights going down in various locations.

Dillian Whyte has also attracted plenty of press and fan interest, but the word now is that the fight might not even happen. As a result of Chisora’s desk-throwing wobbler, the BBB of C must decide whether or not to allow the fight to go ahead), the Andy Ruiz Jnr-Joseph Parker clash and the Terence Crawford-John Molina Jnr showdown.

Anthony Joshua insists there will be no added pressure on him, but the IBF heavyweight champ will have not one but two big names checking out his upcoming performance as they hope to fight him next. Both Wladimir Klitschko and David Haye will be part of Sky Sports’ broadcast team for Joshua’s second defence against Eric Molina, and as much as the two will be impartial analysts, both men will be taking mental notes on how to defeat A.J.
The 28th of November, 2015. Just another date in history to most but for boxing fans it marked a “changing of the guard” or at least that’s what they hoped.
When Tyson Fury met Wladimir Klitschko, the dominant force of Heavyweight boxing for a decade, at the Esprit Arena, Dusseldorf for the WBA (Super), WBO, IBF, IBO & Ring Magazine Championships it was seen as yet another routine defence for Klitschko. What followed was one of the most unexpected and shocking turn of events in the blue ribbon division for some time. By the end of twelve rounds there was nobody in any doubt that Fury had done the unthinkable, he had made believers out of the doubters and, like it or not, cemented his name in the annals of time. He ended the seemingly unstoppable reign of Wlad with a comfortable twelve round unanimous decision and left fans and experts alike wondering what was next for a division that had laid stagnant and dormant for far too long.
With news coming that former heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko will be in attendance in Manchester for Anthony Joshua’s IBF title defence against Eric Molina, some people are wondering if Joshua will be at all affected by the sight of the man he is set up to meet in a huge fight next March/April. Will Joshua try too hard to impress Klitschko? Will he take his eyes, and his concentration, off the man in front of him?
Joshua told Sky Sports how he aims to make the fight, his second title defence, “look easy.” Molina says there is no way AJ will have an easy night next month, and the Mexican/American also made it clear he does not want any excuses if Joshua underestimates him and winds up losing in a big upset. Molina told Sky Sports that he wants to face a Joshua who is fully focused and is taking his challenge seriously.
