1- Vs. Dillian Whyte
This was probably the toughest fight for Joshua. Both Joshua and Whyte had fought previously against each other within the amateur rankings and Joshua had lost.
Joshua had come into the fight with 14 straight knockouts to his name but this one proved quite tough for him. Dillian Whyte endured some huge blows while managing to land a few of his own. In the end, a hook to the temple and a savage uppercut to Whyte decided the result in Joshua’s favor. With this win, Joshua lifted the vacant British heavyweight title.
2- Vs. Charles Martin
Charles Martin looked impressive when he came into fight with his IBF world heavyweight title. However, Joshua made short of this fight as he knocked Martin out in the second round and became a world champion in his sixteenth professional fight.
With this victory, Joshua became the 5th quickest heavyweight to win a version of the world title. He earned the huge amount of £3 million for this fight.
3- Vs. Dominic Breazeale
This fight between Joshua and Dominic Breazeale took place at the 02 Arena in London. It was Joshua’s first world title defence which he defended very well against his rival American challenger.
However, Dominic Breazeale made Joshua really toil for the victory as Breazeale took Joshua past the 3 rounds to become the second boxer after Dillian Whyte to do so. In the 7th round of the fight, Joshua really exploded into action and defeated Dominic Breazeale.
4- Vs. Eric Molina
Eric Molina could not pose a strong challenge to Anthony Joshua. It was the second time that Joshua successfully defended his IBF world heavyweight title.
Eric Molina was looking like no match against the superior punching power of Joshua. Two one sided rounds saw hardly a fight from Eric Molina. Then in the third round, Joshua knocked Molina out with a flurry of amazing punches.
5- Vs. Klitschko
This was probably the hardest and closest fight for Joshua. Both Joshua and Klitschko gave their best but in the end, it was Joshua who came on top.
The first 4 rounds saw a close and cautious fight from both the boxers. However in the 5th round, Joshua showed some real action and energy to which Klitschko responded equally well. For the next few rounds, both boxers remained wary and cautious of each other until Joshua attacked fiercely in round 11 sending Klitschko to the canvas. Klitschko rose again but Joshua came into full attacking action again to win in the end.
