Joshua v Whyte - both unbeaten - is the heavyweight division getting some names again?

...aaaand it's over in the 7th! What a knockout! :woot: The heavyweight division's definitely got a new big name in Joshua; he definitely showed tonight that he's ready for the big fights. He may have never gone past the 3rd round before tonight, but he took plenty of big hits from Whyte throughout. Fury's definitely screwed; if Klitschko doesn't get his revenge in the rematch, then I'm certain Joshua will knock him out.

On the contrary, although Joshua won convincingly, he didn't look ready for the big fights. He still needs quite a bit of experience under his belt before he can go toe to toe with the likes of Fury/Klitschko. He almost gassed himself in the 2nd when he smelt the near KO and it took him a couple of rounds to recover with Whyte winning the round immediately after and getting Joshua on the ropes. It'll be interesting how he can fairs after a potential a 12 round decision fight. I'd definitely like to see a Joshua vs Haye/Chisora fight at some point soon, if he can get those 2 out of the way, he'll definitely be on the road to a title fight with Fury/Klitschko.

Well, Haye's easing himself back into the sport next month by fighting effectively a Twitter troll.,.

...meanwhile, it looks like Joshua's gonna dodge Chisora to go for the European title instead: http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/boxing/anthony-joshua-snub-dereck-chisora-7025307
