ANTHONY JOSHUA received a sterner test then I thought he would from Dillian Whyte but it can only be to his advantage.

I did wonder if he was taking Dillian seriously enough, as he was very relaxed, and could be seen shaking hands and smiling with the supporters as he walked to the ring. I would have expected him to be a bit more focused. He had a great first round, but then we had the bit of afters where both threw punches after the bell. It seemed to upset his rhythm for a couple of rounds – in fact he was shaken down to his boots in the second – but then he got back into his stride.
