Anthony Joshua

Heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua knocked out challenger Kubrat Pulev in the 9th round Saturday in London to defend his, IBF, WBA and WBO titles. Britain's Joshua, now 24-1 in his pro career, controlled the fight most of the way scoring a knockdown and a standing eight count in the third round, then dropping Pulev again in the ninth before putting him down for good with a big right hand.

The fight was held in front of a limited crowd of 1000 fans, the first live audience to attend a British boxing match since the country began a Covid-19 pandemic lockdown in March. Joshua's win clears the way for a heavyweight title unification match against WBC champion and fellow Brit Tyson Fury, a fight that, should it come off, will be the biggest event in British boxing history.

The mere mortals of us will probably as a rule be incredulous when we see people who get to do things people dream of and avoid real jobs. Especially when their gig gives them checks with lots of zeros on them. But some reflection might lead us to see fighting is probably not in the category of things that should illicit that kind of thinking. Does anyone in their right mind dream of stripping down to their skivvies and stepping into a cage to potentially be beat to pulp for a few thousand bucks? If you do, you may want to find an MMA gym near you.
