WORLD champion Anthony Joshua won the first heavyweight unification between two reigning, unbeaten champions held on British soil as he gained a unanimous points verdict against Joseph Parker at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium.

British star Joshua added the WBO belt to the WBA and IBF belts he already holds, but he was taken the distance for the first time in his professional career.

It was his 21st straight career victory, although previously unbeaten New Zealander Parker delivered a battling display without seriously troubling Joshua.
