Joshua Retains Title Against Parker

At the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, Anthony Joshua went the distance for the first time in his career to move his record to 21-0 with 20 knockouts to retain his World Boxing Association Super World Heavyweight Title. 

The fight was a chess match over the course of twelve rounds as Parker was able to keep the fight at a distance and at a lower activity rate than all of Joshua’s previous fights.  The fight was fought almost entirely at a distance so it was difficult for either man to land a devastating shot.

Neither man was seriously hurt in the fight as it was more a battle of the jabs than power punching.  Joshua was continually missing his signature right uppercut but Parker was not landing very many flush power shots himself.

At the end of the day the judges ruled it a unanimous decision for Joshua with scores of 118-110, 118-110, and 119-109.
