Anthony Joshua was able to unify three of the four major heavyweight titles in Boxing yesterday in Cardiff, Wales by scoring a unanimous decision victory over Joseph Parker (119-109, 118-110, 118-110).
With the win, Joshua not only improved his professional boxing record to a perfect 21-0 but he also captured the WBO Heavyweight title.
The undefeated British heavyweight, Joshua, now holds the IBF, WBA and WBO boxing heavyweight titles.
With that said not everybody was impressed with Joshua’s performance yesterday in Wales. Just ask Deontay Wilder, who currently holds the lone belt missing from Anthony’s resume, the WBC heavyweight world title.
Wilder and his team went off on Joshua’s “robbery” of Parker on social media (watch that here).
The WBC heavyweight champion was not the only man to voice his displeasure with yesterday’s marquee boxing match, as former WBA, IBF and WBO champion Tyson Fury (25-0) took to social media with the following synopsis.
Tyson Fury has not competed inside the squared circle since defeating Wladimir Klitschko via decision in November of 2015.
After testing positive for “prohibited substances” by the UK Anti-Doping agency in 2016, Fury opted to vacate his world heavyweight titles.
In January of 2018 Fury’s team announced that he would be re-applying for his boxing license.
