How Patrick Day sustained brain injury and died.

American boxer Patrick Day died Wednesday after suffering a serious brain injury during his knockout defeat to Charles Conwell last weekend, promoter Lou DiBella said in a statement.

The 27-year-old super welterweight had undergone emergency surgery after being knocked out by Conwell on Saturday at Chicago’s Wintrust Arena.

“On behalf of Patrick’s family, team, and those closest to him, we are grateful for the prayers, expressions of support and outpouring of love for Pat that have been so obvious since his injury,” DiBella said.

 

Day, who had been in a coma following surgery at Northwestern Memorial hospital, died surrounded by family and friends.

The American fighter had been carried unconscious from the ring on a stretcher on Saturday following his 10th round knockout.

Conwell, a 2016 American Olympian, dropped Day in the fourth and eighth rounds and then landed a right hand in the 10th which caused Day to stumble.

Seconds later Conwell rocked Day with a massive left hook that resulted in Day falling backwards and his head bouncing off the canvas. Referee Celestino Ruiz called off the fight at one minute, 46 seconds of the round.

Day lay on the canvas for several minutes receiving medical treatment before being removed from the ring.

Day is at least the third boxer to die from injuries sustained in the ring this year.

 

Argentine boxer Hugo Santillan died in July following a bout in San Nicolas, just north of Buenos Aires.

Santillan’s death came just two days after Russian fighter Maxim Dadashev died from brain injuries suffered in a fight in Maryland.

In his statement on Wednesday, DiBella said he hoped Day’s death would prompt US authorities to adopt tougher safety standards.

“It becomes very difficult to explain away or justify the dangers of boxing at a time like this,” DiBella said.

“This is not a time where edicts or pronouncements are appropriate, or the answers are readily available. It is, however, a time for a call to action.

“While we don’t have the answers, we certainly know many of the questions, have the means to answer them, and have the opportunity to respond responsibly and accordingly and make boxing safer for all who participate.”

Anthony Joshua against Andy Ruiz Jr. rematch on Dec.7

Anthony Joshua will be heading to the Middle East on December 7 as the deposed heavyweight boxing champion attempts to wrest back three of the four principal world title belts on neutral territory from nemesis Andy Ruiz Jr, The Telegraph can reveal.

It is understood by Telegraph Sport that it will be announced officially today that the Londoner will face the Californian for the IBF, WBA and WBO titles in Riyadh with Saudi Arabian sports entities – with DAZN in the USA and Sky Box Office in the UK airing the championship fight – having put up close to 100 million US dollars for the contest to take place there, according to sources.

There were other options. An offer was tabled by the Dubai authorities while Cardiff’s Principality Stadium was also in the running for the much-anticipated rematch after Ruiz stopped Joshua at Madison Square Garden in New York on June 1, in one of the most seismic upsets ever witnessed in the history of heavyweight boxing.

On a dramatic night, having been dropped to the canvas himself by Joshua in the third round, Ruiz then responded by felling the Briton twice that round, before referee Mike Griffin waved the fight off in the seventh round with Joshua having been felled twice more, and in his view, not fit to continue.

 

Ruiz had taken the fight on five and a half weeks notice, after Joshua’s original opponent Jarrell Miller had tested positive for three banned substances in random tests leading up to the June 1 contest.

In the last eleven months, Saudi Arabia has hosted two major bouts involving high profile British boxers. In September last year the World Boxing Super Series super-middleweight tournament final between Callum Smith and George Groves took place in Jeddah, won by Smith, along with Amir Khan’s last contest last month against the Australian Billy Dib.

It is also expected that British heavyweight Tyson Fury’s next contest will be announced imminently for September 14 in Las Vegas against Sweden’s Otto Wallin.

“This man’s entire legacy and career has been built off its association with my name,”–Floyd Mayweather.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. criticized Manny Pacquiao after he impressively defeated a previously unbeaten Keith Thurman by split decision to claim the WBA welterweight title last weekend. Then Pacquiao fired back as the two traded trash talk.

As boxing fans called for a rematch of a blockbuster 2015 Mayweather-Pacquiao bout, Mayweather went on social media to take credit for Pacquiao’s popularity.

“This man’s entire legacy and career has been built off its association with my name,” Mayweather wrote Tuesday, in part. “Let that man’s name hold weight of its own.”

Pacquiao found it as an opportune time to jab at his old rival and call for a rematch; Mayweather won by unanimous decision in ’15, when Pacquiao said a shoulder injury kept him from being 100%.

“You come to my fight and then use my name in a post but I’m the one that is trying to stay relevant?” the 40-year-old boxer wrote in response later Tuesday. “If you want to be relevant again…#MayPac2.”

.@FloydMayweather You come to my fight and then use my name in a post but I’m the one that is trying to stay relevant? 🤔 if you want to be relevant again… #MayPac2
— Manny Pacquiao (@MannyPacquiao) July 24, 2019

Pacquiao’s rebuttal didn’t sit well with Mayweather, who went on an Instagram rant early Wednesday. The 42-year-old claimed that because Bob Arum is no longer Pacquiao’s promoter, Mayweather Promotions and PBC events fall under his umbrella and made him the “head (person) in charge” of Pacquiao’s fight.

“Bottom line, I make more money than you; I beat you, then I signed you! I was only at your fight supervising you, my employee, as any real BOSS would do,” Mayweather wrote.

Mayweather added:

 

“You made $10 million for 12 rounds, when I just made $9 million in under 3 minutes playing around in an exhibition with a pizza delivery guy! I beat you mentally, physically, and financially!”

But the back-and-forth didn’t end there. Pacquiao took to Twitter on Wednesday,

 

“Excuse me Floyd, your name has not been on any of my PBC contracts. But if you would like to be on the next one, I will have one drawn up and sent to you. #CounterfeitMoney”

How Russian boxer Maxim Dadash died from brain injury.

Tragic news struck the boxing community on Tuesday.
Russian boxer Maxim Dadashev has died from brain injuries suffered Friday during his 11th-round loss to Subriel Matias at the MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Md., trainer Buddy McGirt confirmed with ESPN on Tuesday.

 

The super lightweight collapsed after the fight; according to ESPN, he underwent a two-hour surgery to relieve bleeding on his brain and was put in a medically induced coma thereafter. Over the weekend, a neurosurgeon at University of Maryland Prince George’s Hospital Center informed Dadashev’s camp the boxer showed signs of severe brain damage,
McGirt gave Dadashev an impassioned plea to stop the fight, saying, “Please! You’re getting hit too much” before stopping the fight.

Upon learning of Dadashev’s passing Tuesday, many members of the boxing community took to Twitter to express their condolences.

 

Dadashev was 13-1 as a pro.

Ruiz demand costly rematch.

These negotiations should be fun!

As Andy Ruiz Jr. continues to be the talk of the town (or really the whole boxing world) after upsetting Anthony Joshua last weekend to become unified heavyweight champion, the titleholder talks to Fight Hub TV about plans for the rematch, and why he’s going to demand huge money if Team Joshua wants to fight on their own home turf.

 

Ruiz on what the last week has been like since becoming champion:

“You know what, it’s been a little crazy. You know, coming from New York over here, doing a lot of interviews, a lot of press, I haven’t gone to see my kids or my wife or nothing like that. But, you know, I’m really excited that I won the world heavyweight champion and I became history, so I’m excited for that.

On his life changing overnight:

“Yep, it sure did, and all the hard work and dedication I’ve been doing with Manny Robles and having all the right people around me, it’s not a one-job thing, you know? But I just thank God.”

 

On his trainer predicting that he would knock Joshua out:

“He had a dream, and my dad — a lot of people had dreams that I knocked him down and it’s crazy. And what do you know, I’m knocking him down.”

On what he was thinking during the first round of the fight, sizing Joshua up:

“I think from the first round to the third round I was just trying to get a feel from him, you know? Both of us was trying to see what we both got, you know? And it’s like a little warm-up thing because we still have 12 other rounds. But what do you know, he dropped me in the third round, my first time being on the canvas, I got up like a true warrior would and knocked him back down.”

On what his first thought was when he got dropped for the first time in his career:

“I was a little surprised. I was like ‘What the hell?’ a little shocked, you know, because I’ve never been down in the canvas, I don’t know how it felt. But it’s kinda like a little numb part where you’re on the floor, your eyes close, you wake up like ‘What the hell, I’m on the floor.’ But I felt good, I got up. I got up good, I took a breather and I was just thinking ‘Come on, God, give me power. Please, God!’ That’s what I was saying when I got knocked down and what do you know, Anthony comes at me trying to finish me off. I moved and got him with the left hook and ever since I got him with that left hook it hasn’t changed — he didn’t change.”

On if he knew Joshua didn’t want anymore after the last knockdown when Joshua went back to his corner and put his arms on the ropes:

“There’s nothing left. I think if the referee wouldn’t have stopped it, I think I would’ve knocked him out in a dramatic other way. But, you know, the ref does his job but I did my job, for sure.”

On how hard Joshua hits:

“Well he hits pretty hard if he put me on the canvas, you know?…I think it was a lucky shot of him putting me on the canvas, but those lucky shots could end the night. But the warrior that I am, the Mexican blood that I have inside of me made me get up and win the fight.”

On what’s the status of the rematch with Joshua:

“Yeah, I think they did say November/December but right now my team, they’re negotiating everything right now, you know, and I just gotta stay busy, stay healthy, and be ready for the rematch.”

On Team Joshua wanting the rematch in the U.K. and whether he has the power to shut that down and force the rematch here in the U.S.:

“I would love it to be here in the United States or in Mexico, you know. But, hey, it all depends on the team and what we negotiate. You know, if they want me to go over there they have to give me $50 million dollars. It they wanna come over there, you know — it’s just negotiations.”

On how he thinks a rematch would play out, and whether or not he thinks it would be the same kind of fight:

“We all have improvements to make and we always learn as boxers, we always have stuff to learn. And I think if we do the rematch he’s gonna be a little bit more cautious. I think he’s gonna try to box me around [the ring] but Anthony’s not good moving back, moving around.

“But if we both exchange punches I’m easily gonna — I have the faster hands and I can take a punch.”

On his thoughts on media pundits like Stephen A. Smith basically trashing his win based on his physical appearance:

“Everyone has their comments and their differences but no hard feelings to the people that are trying to talk down about the fight and whatnot. But shoutout to Steph, or whatever his name is.”

On if he thinks a fight against Deontay Wilder will ultimately be the fight for the undisputed championship:

“You know what? In this boxing game, especially the heavyweight game, you never know because it only takes one punch to change the whole fight and the situation…But who knows, I think it’s gonna be a really exciting fight against Wilder and Ortiz. To me, I think Wilder’s gonna win, you know? Ortiz is a little bit older but I’d love to get in there with Wilder as well. I think that’s the only belt that I’m missing and to be the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world I need that belt.”

I’m a soldier, and I have to take my ups and my downs–Anthony Joshua.

Former undefeated and unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua took to his YouTube channel Wednesday to reflect on his shocking loss to Andy Ruiz Jr. at Madison Square Garden on Saturday. The heavyweight division was blown wide open when the massive underdog Mexican shocked the world to take the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO titles.

“I have to take my loss like a man, no blaming anyone, no blaming anything.” Joshua said. “I’m the one who went in there to perform, and my performance didn’t go to plan. My game plan didn’t go to plan, so I have to readjust, analyze, do my best to correct it and get the job done in the rematch.

“Congratulations to Andy Ruiz, he has six months or so to be champion, because the belts go into the air and he has to defend the title against myself. Within our contract we were negotiating we added some clauses, as you do. So naturally we added a rematch clause, date, location and so on.

“I would not mind if it was in New York again, I wouldn’t mind if it was in England.”

The rematch was announced Tuesday by Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn. But the date and location are yet to be confirmed.

Joshua also dismissed a couple of the rumors that have been making the rounds since his defeat.
“About the fight, look, the whole training camp team pulled together and done a great job,” he said. “I started my camp off in Sheffield (England), which I normally do, anyway. Was working there for about six weeks, seven weeks cracking on, came to New York, continue my press tour. There was a lot of issues going on with this fight with Jarrell Miller, (Luiz) Ortiz pulling out, (Andy) Ruiz stepping in, but it all makes for the drama show, the entertainment of heavyweight boxing.

 

“So, I traveled here, done my press conference, and then I’ve gone to Miami. The set up was spot-on. I didn’t go out expect for lunch one day, out in the open. Other days the chef in-house was cooking, eating in-house and so on. No contaminated food. I know there’s a lot of accusations and worries about what was wrong with me, but I want to tell you this: I’m a soldier, and I have to take my ups and my downs, and on Saturday I took a loss, and I have to take it like a man and that’s why one of my sayings is, ‘never let success get to your head and never let your failures get to your heart.'”

Added Joshua: “I had no panic attack. I’m not that type of person. You know me.”

What went wrong that a pot-bellied Ruiz destroyed Six-Pack Joshua?

NEW YORK (AP) — Andy Ruiz Jr. had six weeks to prepare for the fight of his life.

He’ll have a lifetime to celebrate one of boxing’s biggest heavyweight stunners.

A massive underdog just like Buster Douglas, Ruiz knocked down British champion Anthony Joshua four times — four! — and the final two in the seventh round proved the decisive blows.

Ruiz, the first heavyweight of Mexican descent to win a heavyweight title, capped one of boxing’s epic upsets to win Joshua’s shares of the heavyweight championship Saturday night at Madison Square Garden.

“I just feel so good, man,” Ruiz said. “This is what I’ve been dreaming about, this is what I’ve been working hard for. I can’t believe I just made my dreams come true.”

Ruiz etched his name in heavyweight lore by TKO at 1:27 in the seventh round to become the surprise champ in a bout that had shades of Douglas’ upset over Mike Tyson for the heavyweight title in 1990. Ruiz barely was on anyone’s heavyweight radar when he was summoned as a replacement to fight the undefeated Joshua in front of a packed Garden.

Considered a joke by fans, all Ruiz did was dominate the British champion and used a TKO to turn his life and the heavyweight division upside down. The 270-pound heavyset heavyweight knocked down Joshua twice in the third round and did it two more times in the seventh before referee Mike Griffin ended the fight. Joshua was woozy and seemed to stumble toward the wrong corner after the final blow.

Ruiz stepped in after fighting on April 20, when he stopped Alexander Dimitrenko. Jarrell Miller’s failed drug tests sent the challenger to the sideline and paved the way for Ruiz’s unexpected title shot. Ruiz (33-1, 21 KO’s) seized the opportunity and made boxing history to win the WBA/IBF/WBO/IBO championships. He raised his arms in celebration and jumped around the ring as his corner quickly mobbed him and a wild celebration kicked off.

“I’ve got that Mexican blood in me,” he said. “Talking about the Mexican style? I just proved it.”

The true shock might have been that the Garden was packed on a Saturday night for a fight few expected to be competitive. Yes, Ruiz is up there with Douglas and Hasim Rahman for who-can-believe-it wins, but casual sports fans don’t even know the names of most boxing champions — consider, instead of pay-per-view parties, this card was streamed by DAZN.

When ring announcer Michael Buffer announced the name of the judges “should this fight go the distance,” fans laughed at the ridiculous possibility as Ruiz was an ultimate underdog.

Joshua (22-1, 22 KO’s) and Ruiz were both knocked down in an electrifying third round that had the sellout crowd of 20,201 howling with each heavy hit. Joshua knocked down Ruiz early in the round and the promise of an early finish seemed horizon.

Ruiz, his trunks a bit too low for his portly frame, came right back and used an overhand right that rocked the champ and sent him to the canvas. Joshua recovered only to get pummeled in the corner. Ruiz knocked him down again in the final ticks of the round as fans in a disbelieving Garden crowd screamed “Oh my God!” Again, Joshua beat the count but the bell saved the Brit from a going a second longer in his weakened state. Had it not been a championship fight, perhaps Griffin would have stopped the bout.

Alas, for Joshua, it went on.

Ruiz, whose father, a native of Mexico, got him into the gym when he was 6 and had his son in bouts a year later, shook up the boxing world. Johsua was the fan favorite and had all the hype for his first fight in the United States.

“If it wasn’t for my dad, I wouldn’t be here,” Ruiz said.

NBA star Kyrie Irving and rapper Meek Mill were among the celebrities in the house expecting Joshua to roll to a win and set up more ambitious, lucrative bouts against the likes of Tyson Fury, Deontay Wilder and a few other potential opponents.

“Sorry I let my fans down, sorry I let my supporters down,” Joshua said.

Ruiz made some new ones.

“It is never over until it’s over with the Mexicans. God bless them. Congrats Andy Ruiz,” former UFC champion Conor McGregor tweeted.

Wilder, owner of the WBC crown, decided to give Luis Ortiz a rematch. Ortiz battered Wilder for parts of their fight in early 2018 before running out of gas and getting knocked out.

Wilder tried to steal the headlines this week when he announced his rematch with Fury was set for 2020. Wilder and Fury fought to a split draw in December in Los Angeles, with Wilder retaining his WBC heavyweight title after knocking down his British challenger twice.

Joshua instead heads toward a likely rematch against Ruiz later this year.

Fans booed when Ruiz was shown on the big screen holding a personalized Knicks jersey. He walked out to his press conference wearing the jersey — his coronation complete, a table full of championship belts all for him.

“My life is going to change,” he said. “I don’t have to show them no more.”

British heavyweight boxer Kash Ali disqualified for biting opponent David Price

Heavyweight boxer Kash Ali was disqualified for twice biting his opponent David Price in Liverpool on Sunday night.

The British Boxing Board are almost certain to take action at their next meeting.

Birmingham fighter Ali, previously undefeated in 15 professional bouts, appeared to bite Price just below the shoulder in the third round of their heavyweight contest before being punished again for landing a punch on the back of his opponent’s head.

In the fifth, Price landed a heavy right on his opponent before the two ended up in a tangle and fell to the mat. Ali held onto Price as the two were down, appearing to bite him again just below the left pectoral muscles, below his ribcage.

Ali was immediately disqualified with Price awarded the victory – with images clearly showing where he had left his mark on the Liverpudlian.

Elsewhere on the night, Preston’s light-middleweight Scott Fitzgerald defeated Anthony Fowler – the nephew of former Liverpool Football Club star Robbie Fowler – on points to hand Fowler his first defeat.

In the main event, Liam Smith stopped Sam Eggington in the fifth round to claim the WBC Silver light- middleweight. The former world champion Smith is undefeated in all ten fights he has had in Liverpool.

‘I’ll fight anybody, just get me an opponent’ – Anthony Joshua vows to keep US debut despite Jarrell Miller drugs failure

Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has pledged that his American debut will go ahead as planned at Madison Square Garden in six weeks’ time after his original opponent Jarrell Miller tested positive for a banned performance-enhancing steroid.

The positive result for the drug GW1516 came from a random urine test which the unbeaten Miller had taken for the Nevada-based Voluntary Anti-Doping Association on March 20. Joshua had also undergone a similar test.

Miller, of Brooklyn, who was set to earn a career-high $6 million (£4.6 million) purse to challenge the Briton for three of the world title belts, was denied a licence to fight on Wednesday evening and replacements for Miller are being sought.

Eddie Hearn, Joshua’s promoter, told Telegraph Sport: “We are talking to other potential opponents. The first person I called when I learnt the news was Anthony, and he said ‘I’ll fight anybody. The event goes on. Just get me an opponent’.

“We had a dozen calls from fighters wanting an opportunity and we will go through the serious ones. Anyone in the top 15 in the world is acceptable, but the higher ranked, the bigger the name, the better.

 

“In an ideal world, we would prefer it to be an American opponent, but there are 17,000 tickets sold and 10,000 Brits are flying over. How many of those were coming to watch Miller?”
Former world title challenger Luis Ortiz or Polish fighter Adam Kownacki are potential replacements, but even Joe Joyce, the Olympic silver medallist and Commonwealth Games gold medallist put himself forward, although he is only 8-0 as a professional, as did Joseph Parker, who lost his World Boxing Organisation belt to Joshua in Cardiff a year ago.

“I’m ready to go,” Parker said on Wednesday. Another possible opponent is Londoner Dillian Whyte, who is ranked fourth with the World Boxing Association, though turned down a fight with Joshua scheduled for Wembley Stadium on April 13, saying he was unhappy with the deal and the timings. “Is Dillian Whyte in the mix? I don’t think so…” Hearn said. “Our plan is for him to fight in July.

 

“If he wanted the fight on June 1, AJ would take it. We are obviously moving into action and we are going to have a replacement standing by.”

Meanwhile in New York, Amir Khan went head to head with Terence Crawford, the World Boxing Organisation champion, at a news conference ahead of their welterweight clash at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night. Khan said that he is “inspired” by the support of the legendary Sugar Ray Leonard, revealing to Telegraph Sport that he abstains from sex for six weeks leading into his fights. Some boxers believe abstinence helps them retain vim for training and the contest itself.
“I’ve always been like that, I like to be getting into fight mode without thoughts of that, so from about six weeks out there is no sex,” said Khan. “It’s something different boxers do differently. I’ve even had my own apartment training for this fight. I think staying away from sex just keeps you more in your animal spirit side, retaining something inside you.”

‘Devastated’ Jarrell Miller to appeal decision to revoke his licence for doping test failure

Jarrell Miller says he has “never knowingly taken any banned substance” and intends to appeal against the decision to revoke his licence following an adverse doping test.

Miller, who was due to fight British heavyweight Anthony Joshua in his native New York on June 1, produced an adverse result for a metabolic modulator in testing carried out on March 20 by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA).

He retains the right to request another sample be tested and to reapply for a licence, and has now stated his intention to “vigorously appeal” against the decision.

“I am absolutely devastated upon hearing the news my boxing licence has been revoked in NY State and I will be vigorously appealing this decision,” he wrote on Instagram.

“I have NEVER knowingly taken any banned substance and when I found out the news last night I was totally shocked.

“My team and I stand for integrity, decency & honesty and together we will stand to fight this with everything we have!

Joshua’s camp are still working towards a fight at Madison Square Garden on June 1, with Matchroom chief executive Frank Smith stating on Wednesday night that his organisation were “looking at other potential opponents”.
Miller continued: “This was a voluntary test that I was very happy to do and these results came just one week after another voluntary test that I had taken which was completely clean.

“I refuse to just lie down and let my dream be taken away from me when I know in my heart that I’ve done nothing wrong.

“Fifteen years of hard work. I’m a WARRIOR .. I don’t need a banned substance.

“Remember, don’t believe everything you hear and see. The facts will prevail and I shall be vindicated. I don’t have anything to hide and the truth will make itself known.”

‘I WANT JOSHUA TO FIGHT TYSON FURY.’ —-(3 Minutes Read).

Anthony Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn said on Sunday he wants to see his fighter take on controversial former world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury in all-British showdown next year.

 

Joshua, 28 succesfully defended IBF and WBA Heavyweight titles against Carlos Takam in Cardiff on Saturday and either WBO Champion Joseph Parker or WBC Champion Deontay Wilder appear the most likely next opponents.

 

However,Hearn has not ruled out the prospect of a headline-grabbing bout with          Fury,who is still waiting from a final ruling from UK anti-doping on a suspended drugs ban after the hearing was adjourned in July.

“I think the Wilder fight is potentially one of the biggest in the World boxing and I think that fight is realistically going to happen in the summer of 2018” he told BBC Radio.

 

“But Tyson Fury is a guy who we’d love to see come into the sport.Whether that’ll happen or not is another issue”.

 

“The problem for him is to overcome the governing body and UK anti-doping”.

 

“I think he will come back.I think at some point he will wake up one morning  and think”.

 

“I’ve got to get myself together here and go challenge in these big fights”.

 

“If he does with me or two fights, then I’d love to see the Anthony Joshua fight and I’d like to see it in 2018”.

TYSON FURY

 

Fury,whose licence was suspended by the British Boxing Board of Control(BBofC) last October has not fought since beating Wladimir Klitschko to win IBF,WBA and WBO titles in November 2015.

 

Earlier this month,the 29-year-old Fury said he would not reapply to the BBofC for the right to fight again,further reducing the chances of a return.

ANTHONY JOSHUA DEFENDS REFEREE OVER CONTROVERSIAL STOPPAGE:’HIS JOB IS TO LET THE FIGHTER LIVE ON ANOTHER DAY’.

Anthony Joshua defended referee Phil Edwards’ decision to stop his WBA and IBF heavyweight title fight with Carlos Takam despite refusing to celebrate when he did so.

 

The 28-year-old had endured perhaps the most frustrating might of his career when in his 20th fight, the resilient Takam resisted his heavy punishment until Edwards intervened in the 10th round.

 

France’s angry Takam, 36, immediately spoke of his desire for a rematch having protested at the stoppage which led to booing from some of those in attendance.

 

Joshua also suffered a heavily swollen nose, which doctors have confirmed is not broken, on the same evening his entrance music and some of the  Principality Stadium’s screens cut out as he walked to the ring.

 

“I don’t care if I spark him out,it goes 12 rounds or the ref end it”said Joshus,who occassionally dabbed at his nose during his post-fight press conference.

“People want to see the fighters I fight unconscious every time”.

 

“I was delivering:I put him down,I hurt him,I slashed both his eyes, he was bleeding.My shorts and boots were pure white and now they’re pink.People wanted to see him unconscious and I was trying, but the ref’s job is to let the fighter live on another day”.

 

“Takam was showing the ref his eyes were nearly hanging off from the cuts,they were deep.When he was stopped he wanted to carry on:that’s a fighter’s instinct.Twelve rounds is fine,the stoppage is fine:I’m happy I got the win and I can move on”

 

Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn had spoken post-fight of the intense pressure he fights undert, and the heavyweight said:

 

“You always have that instinct you want to hurt your opponent .I saw Takam was hurt a few times but I didn’t want to go steaming in;I wanted the knockout to come naturally”.

 

“You don’t see the headbutt coming,and its harder than a punch because it’s bone on bone,that crunch;it was just getting through that round”.

 

“You really want 10minutes to get yourself together,and it was managing it through the rounds because it was ready to start gushing with blood.(It stopped me breathing) a little bit.

 

“I’m happy the win’s secured and we’re moving on”.
