“The UK is a great place, so many great fighters. I am proud of Anthony Joshua, and it’s lights, camera, action.
“He is one of the best heavyweights out there. Got a gold medal before. His career is going great, he is a hell of a fighter.
“Anything can happen in the sport of boxing, one shot can change it all. He is a great fighter, hell of a guy a gentleman and I respect his craft.”
Joshua retained his WBA, IBF, and WBO belts and will now look to his next challenge.
