Froch vs Groves II results: Anthony Joshua wins easily again

Scott Heavey

Anthony Joshua stayed unbeaten with an easy first round stoppage win over Matt Legg.

Anthony Joshua kept up the usual work that we've seen thus far in his pro career, improving to 6-0 (6 KO) with a first round stoppage of Matt Legg today at Wembley Stadium in London.

The 2012 Olympic gold medalist and current top heavyweight prospect did have an opponent in Legg (7-3, 4 KO) who was willing to come at him with reckless abandon, but all that did was hasten Legg's inevitable defeat, not that there was much he could do otherwise. The 38-year-old Legg was overmatched, undersized, and out of his depth. He gave it the only remote shot he had, and it didn't work.

There is talk now -- though there had been talk before, too -- of Joshua facing Matt Skelton (28-8, 23 KO), the 47-year-old veteran and former European, British, and Commonwealth champion. Skelton hasn't been in the ring since March 2013, and he has lost two straight, but even still he would be a step up from the guys Joshua has been facing, and at this stage it's still just about steps.
