Nigerian-born British boxer, Anthony Joshua has beaten New Zealand boxer, Joseph Parker to claim his WBO title.

Joshua cruised to a unanimous decision victory in the fight after putting up what appeared a poor performance.

Joshua, the WBA and IBF champion, went the distance for the first time in his career but failed to impress in a boring 12-round effort against WBO champion, Parker.

The fight was held in front of nearly 80,000 fans at Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales.

Despite what seemed a relatively close and uneventful bout, Joshua (21-0, 20KOs) received the benefit of wide score cards(119-109,118-110 twice).
