Just demolished a Russian in a round and a half who'd not been stopped in under 4 rounds for 9 years. Nice guy as well. Hope he goes all the way.

He's now a British Champion... will he get a chance to take on Tyson Fury..?

It was actually a half-decent fight for a heavyweight contest too..!

I would say a good year and at least three more fights with decent opponents.

Now a world champion. Well done Anthony.

I hope he eventually gets to fight and knock out Fury, but only after he's given the oaf a boxing battering for 7 or 8 rounds.

He's got far more technique and class than that loudmouth homophobic misogynist.

Being on the liberal left I'm naturally a pacifist...but I'd love to see Fury get an absolute hiding.

Good win for AJ. The power has never been in question. But a version of the heavyweight title being associated with a fight of that standard is sad.

Let's not forget who the real undisputed heavyweight champ is - Tyson Fury.

Forgive me if I'm being daft here, but how can Tyson Fury be 'undisputed' if other people hold alternative heavy weight titles?

Not 'undipusted' in the traditional sense no. I'm just highlighting the point that Fury is still very much top dog in the division.

To be the man, you gotta beat THE man.

Fury has done that. AJ may go on to do it too, but he's not there yet.

I heard Eddie Hearn on Tv today saying a fight between Fury and Joshua may happen in July at Wembley.

WOW, that would be a sporting event to remember

It won't happen as Fury is fighting Klitschko in Manchester on 9th July. Confused

I think you may have misheard. He's talking about Joshua fighting on the same day.

In case you missed it... our own Ben Jones is still the WBO Intercontinental Featherweight Champion.

He was very unlucky on Saturday night, as his opponent Rios was cut in the 2nd and Ben was well ahead, but the fight got stopped in the 3rd and ruled no contest due to clash of heads.

So not undisputed then. That is an absolute adjective.

Fury is a bigoted oaf with no class at all. Cannot wait to see face meet canvas.

It is indisputable that Tyson Fury is currently the no1 heavyweight in the world. Everything else is guess work.

I don't like the fella either, but he's a lot more talented than the casual boxing fan makes out. Let's not forget that he absolutely schooled a man who was unbeaten in something like 25 fights across 10 years.

If you can't wait to see him hit the canvas. I suggest you type it into Google. You won't have to wait months or potentially years to see it.
