share on:

Anthony Joshua successfully defended his IBF heavyweight title for the second time, when he knocked out Eric Molina in the third round of their Saturday fight in Manchester.

The undefeated British boxer knocked out Molina in the third round with a short right, before the referee waved the fight off.

The 27-year-old has 18 knockouts in as many fights, and he’ll face Wladimir Klitschko come April 29 at the Wembley stadium.

“This is the step-up people have wanted,” said Joshua. “Klitschko wants his belts back and may the best man win.”

Klitschko, who lost his WBA, IBF and WBO belts to Tyson Fury last year, stepped through the ropes to speak to Joshua.

“He is the best man in the division and the excitement speaks for itself,” said the Ukraine fighter. “This is what the fans want and this fight must happen.”
