Joshua to make first title defenSe on June 25


LONDON: Newly crowned IBF world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua will make his first title defense on June 25 in London against an as-yet unnamed opponent, he announced on Thursday (Friday in Manila). The 26-year-old British fighter produced a routine second-round knockout of American Charles Martin to claim the title earlier this month in his 16th professional fight and will return to London’s O2 Arena to defend it. Potential opponents for Joshua, who has made no secret of his desire to fight fellow British world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, include Bermane Stiverne, Eric Molina and Dominic Breazeale.
