Anthony Joshua remained unbeaten on Saturday night in Manchester, England, as he torched American contender Eric Molina. Joshua, a 2012 Olympic gold medalist, was never threatened in the contest and did whatever he pleased before taking him out in the third.
Joshua (18-0, 18 KOs) was aggressive early and his style made “The Drummer Boy” uneasy. The Brit was relentless with his attacks and eventually dropped Molina in the third and when the challenger battled back to his feet, the end was right around the corner. Joshua wasted no time and tore into his unsteady foe and forced a referee stoppage with a follow-up swarm, ending the fight at the 2:02 mark.
After the fight, which was televised on Showtime, it was informally announced that Joshua will take on former undisputed heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko at the 80,000-seat Wembley Stadium on April 29.
