Britain’s Anthony Joshua has added the WBO belt to his collection of titles with a win over Joseph Parker.
For the first time Joshua was forced to go the distance – but was unanimously declared the winner with a wide margin on the judges’ scorecards:118-110 twice and 119-109.
After his win, Joshua told Sky Sports: “My strategy was to stick behind the jab.
“I was switched on and I was focused, Joseph Parker is a world champion and I said this was about boxing finesse.
“What you can’t forget is that I am the unified heavyweight champion of the world.”
