The Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, featured a stacked undercard of WBA fights before the Anthony Joshua vs David Price main event.

Alexander Povetkin moved his record to 34-1 with 24KO’s as he defend his WBA Inter-Continental Heavyweight Title against David Price successfully with a knockout at the 1:02 mark in the fifth round.  It was an exciting fight, with Povetkin swarming Price with punches in the early rounds until he landed a beauty of a left hook in the third round to floor Price.  Price rose from the canvas to land his heavy hands at the end of the round and score a knockdown himself when the referee ruled that the ropes held him up at the very end of the third round.  In the fifth round is when Povetkin scored a knockout of the year contender off of a right that stunned Price and a left hand that put him down and out.  Povetkin is now the mandatory challenger for the world title.

Joe Cordina moved his record to 7-0 by getting his sixth knockout over Hakim Ben Ali at the 2:42 mark in the third round.  Cordina won the vacant World Boxing Association International Lightweight Title in the process.  Although he had a great performance while it lasted Cordina wanted to show the fans more and promised that we have not seen anything just yet.

Josh Kelly moved his record to 6-0 by gaining a unanimous decision victory over the rugged veteran Carlos Molina over ten rounds.  Kelly won the vacant World Boxing Association International Welterweight Title en route to a nearly shutout decision.  Kelly was simply too fast and too powerful for Molina as he hurt and nearly took him out late in the fight.  Molina is a very sturdy veteran, however, and was able to last the distance.  The cards read 98-92, 98-92, and 99-91.
