Aye, itís a fair enough comment she does take more shots than you would like. Iím no expert on womenís boxing but maybe itís a calculated risk not thinking opponents have the necessary power even if they catch her.

This girl she fought tonight is a world champ, are there better belts out there? Katie was miles ahead of her but she was game in fairness..

Ridiculous stoppage considering how much Takam had been allowed fight on. Shipped a few shots but he was trying to defend himself and wasn't badly rocked. Ref made a balls of it too. Too timid to jump in and Joshua's final shots landed when Takam was in ref's headlock ffs.

Poor fight altogether. Joshua win was as guaranteed

He might have been slightly premature but the end wasnít far away.

A fight that threw up a fair few questions about Joshua..

It wasn't that far away but it was still too early. He was outclassed from the beginning and went ten and a half rounds, taking some big shots throughout the fight. He wasn't suddenly in any more danger after a few more shots than he had been throughout the fight.

Anywho, disappointing enough but Takam showed he's plenty tough.

Takam showed some bottle to fight through the injury, and before it he was asking some questions of Joshua. You'd have to question Joshua's performance post Takam's cut as it took him a very long time to put away a badly hurt fighter. Wilder is pretty poor but if Fury was fully motivated it would make an interesting fight.

Wilder isn't "poor". He's by no means the greatest heavyweight boxer of all time but he's certainly not "poor". AJ's chin has shown that it can be tickled. Wilder comes roaring out of the blocks and lands on him? Who knows.

I think Wilder can punch but as a boxer he is severely limited. Even his stance and how he holds his guard is loose and sloppy. Thereís not much to him. Joshua would beat him pretty comfortably with anything approaching his Klitschko fight form.

He is certainly limited but AJ ain't no Joe Louis or Muhammad Ali either. Look at the state of Dillian White tonight and think of the problems he caused AJ a few years ago.

Wilder is big and can bang. That could well be enough to beat AJ in my opinion.

White didnt really trouble Joshua.  Wilder is poor to be honest and you would expect Joshua to win.

He didn't really trouble him apart from the bit where he nearly knocked him out.

Joshua was in serious trouble against White at one stage. Recovered well to be fair. I donít rate Joshua that highly as a boxer. Very robotic and gases out at times. That Takam fella had much better boxing skills but didnít have the power to trouble Joshua that much. Heavyweight division is poor enough. I quite like Joshua but sky would sicken you the way they talk about him.

Of all the examples over the years of posters racing to get offended on behalf of someone else, that might just be the worst. Eejit.

Joshua is pretty much unbeatable to be honest. Somebody might come along in a few years that changes that, but he will have it handy the next 3/4 years.
