Anthony Joshua defeats Gary Cornish

By Real talk Ray: The undefeated heavyweight prospect Anthony Joshua (14-0, 14) crushed the Scottish Gary Cornish (22-1, 12) in the first round, in what seems to be another routine demolition job at the O2 Arena, in London earlier tonight. Joshua dropped the 28-year-old Cornish within the first 60 seconds, with the fight being stop and all over after 1:37 seconds of the first round.


I can see why everybody’s getting excited about this dude, talks well, quick, looked a bit leaner tonight as well and what seems like some serious punching power. REALLY does look the full package, there just one question the needs to be answered? What’s your chin like?
Is it a bit skittish like WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder might have shown his chin is in his last fight by doing a brief bandy leg dance, a shot from the mediocre Eric Molina? Or is it the chin of a real Warrior like the recently retired former super middleweight champion Carl Froch? Because if it is, we really could be looking at the future heavyweight star of boxing.

One thing I would say though, is I hope he don’t get too over confident, that over hyped intro with him counting himself in really isn’t necessary. Joshua needs to leave the ego backstage and away from the cameras before you stand in front of them.

Dillian Whyte (16-0, 13 KO’s) battered American heavyweight Brian Minto (41-10, 26 KO’s), stopping him in the third round earlier on the undercard. Whyte looks like he has the power to spark at anyone and a decent chin too boot. But he takes too many shots and looks like he could be out boxed, or handled well enough by the top boxers, as long as they can take what he has to offer. But certainly a good mix to the heavyweight boxing scene, and surely can’t be over looked.

I really do hope he has a great career whatever happens with him and Joshua, because I love those unrefined, real talking, straight up, to the point road men, happy to be themselves whether the cameras are rolling or not. There’s no false pretense there, what you see is what you get.

The stage is now set for Anthony Joshua vs Dillian Whyte for December the 12th back at the O2, depending on Whyte’s shoulder of course. These two guys ain’t scared of each other any way and that’s for certain, so it will be getting made sooner rather than later regardless.
Looking forward to it, as I’m sure, a lot of us are.
