Anthony Joshua beats Charles Martin to win IBF world heavyweight title

The Lab's Anthony Joshua beats Charles Martin to win IBF world heavyweight title.

On another pulsating night at the O2 Arena Lab member Anthony Joshua came up against the reigning IBF champion, Charles Martin for his 16th fight of his blossoming career. Supported by many from The Lab south of the river, Anthony was able to demonstrate his sheer raw power to get the job done. 

In less than 60 seconds into round two - the fight was over. Charles Martin was sent to the canvas after a 2nd successive knock down, a look of incredulity across the American's face.

Anthony's clinical right hand and calm composer from the outset was no match for Martin who will surely now be reflecting on a night to forget. After the fight Anthony said "I'd like to thank all those Lab members and staff who came down to watch me, your belief and support is appreciated and pushes me forward... There's more to come, I'll stay humble.... and hungry!".

Anthony Joshua has become a world heavyweight champion in 16 fights and 34 rounds. Believe the hype.... and watch this space for Anthony's defence of the belt.
