In his sixth professional fight Anthony Joshua produced the quickest win of his professional career.

Matched up with the Milton Keynes fighter Matt Legg, a fighter who had promised to take the fight to the Olympic super-heavyweight gold medallist, Joshua stopped his opponent in precisely 83 seconds.

As promised, Legg started fast with some swinging punches that glanced off of Joshua but once the initial storm had been weathered Joshua stepped inside to land a crunching upper-cut that put his opponent on the canvas.

Legg tried to get to his feet but was unable to beat the count making it six wins out of six for the fast developing Anthony Joshua who had this to say afterwards,

?I knew he would come out swinging. I thought ?Just tuck up and enjoy it, take a few, give a few?. I knew if I didn?t get tagged to many times I would break him down. I feel I could step up. Experience is what I need, I haven?t been past two rounds yet.?

After the fight all the talk was of a next fight being against the experienced ex-British champion, Matt Skelton, a fighter who is ageing but durable, sometime in July in Liverpool.
