Anthony Joshua is back!
The Brit brutally knocked out Robert Helenius on Saturday night to rating his initial KO victory due to the fact he stopped Kubrat Pulev in 2020.
Just after a tentative first number of rounds, Joshua started to split by way of with a handful of ability punches in spherical 3, but he appeared hesitant to throw any combos.
In the fourth spherical Joshua appeared to have Helenius harm against the ropes, but after once more he backed off and failed to capitalise.
And it was the exact tale in round 5, as AJ caught his opponent with a significant shot and Helenius’ appeared to be on shaky legs, but Joshua refused to have interaction additional, pretty much as if he was purposefully prolonging the bout.
But then, a flick appeared to change in Joshua.
He turned on the aggression and the outdated Joshua reemerged, as he landed a thunderous ideal hand that observed Helenius collapse on to the canvas unconscious and the bout was waved off.
The good news is Helenius designed it back to his toes, but as shortly as the knockout punch was landed, Joshua jumped out of the ring and did a lap of honour, nearly in reduction that he experienced acquired the work finished.
When he obtained back again into the ring, he was greeted by Conor McGregor who obtained him to consume his Forged Irish Stout and AJ obliged.
This a massive victory for Joshua as it sets up a opportunity clash with Deontay Wilder in Saudi Arabia that is now in the will work and will likely to get spot early following year.
