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.
