Joshua V Breazeale Get Fight Alerts VideoAnthony Joshua vs Dominic Breazeale - full fight (HD)
That's all from a great night of fights at the O2 Arena, topped by a mature performance from Anthony Joshua in his first world title defence.
Dominic Breazeale showed he is a lot tougher than many fought but there was a clear speed and skill differential and the bigger man eventually fell in the seventh.
George Groves showed he still has what it takes to compete at the top by handily beating a tough and gritty Martin Murray to propel himself to a fourth world title fight at super middleweight and Chris Eubank was on top form in the ring and on the mike as he called out Gennady Golovkin following his fourth-round stoppage of Tom Doran.
JEFF POWELL : Anthony Joshua inflicted a seventh round knockout on American challenger Dominic Breazeale to retain his IBF World heavyweight crown.
The Londoner, who is now unbeaten in 17 professional fights, was never troubled by his courageous opponent, who refused to throw in the towel, despite absorbing a series of sickening blows.
Joshua won the title with a crushing defeat of Charles Martin in April and will surely now be training his sights on a step up in class, with David Haye, Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury potential opponent.
CLICK HERE to read the full report. One day we'll get to experience that. Joshua went after him ferociously, inflicting the first knock down with a straight right followed by a left hook.
The end came in a barrage of artillery and a blur of pain. Breazeale got back up from that knockdown but Joshua swarmed him and put him down again.
The referee has seen enough. It was three lovely straight shots that hurt Breazeale the second time before another three-shot combo against the ropes that closed the show.
Breazeale was still in there later than expected and Joshua had to engage in some more classical boxing to maintain his ascendaqncy over the taller man.
The American continued to absorb punishment most bravely, presumably in hope that Joshua, only once before taken beyond the fourth, might tire. He's starting to tee off now, but you wonder what's going through AJ's head as Breazeale keeps coming.
The boisterous crowd was falling slightly quiiter, even though their man was moving ever further ahead on the cards.
Joshua's jab looks great tonight. The longer this fight goes the more you wonder will Joshua tire? Breazeale was taking the big punches better than Joshua expected and Joshua had to take a few himself.
Joshua landed a huge shot there which saw sweat fly through the air and across the ring from the hair of Breazeale.
The challenger's right eye is swolen, purple and battered and he is starting to wince at the champ's shots.
A right uppercut and left hook had done the wobbling damage in the second. Joshua had more toys in his box and he rained down a variety of punches in the third, behind that stiff jab.
Breazeale was made of sterner stuff than the American paper champion who had preceded him into this ring 11 weeks earlier and he kept punching back through the storm.
The round ended with Breazeale staggered by that Joshua jab. Breazeale has a hell of a chin and already has a black eye and a bloody nose.
He did land a shot there though which Joshua ate well. The second began with some clubbing rights to the Breazeale head, against which he showed commendable resilience.
The next barrage sent the American reeling across so drunkenly that referee Foster had to look closely to confirm neither hand nor knee had touched.
Joshua went for it but Breazeale survived the round. The first world heavyweight title fight since the death of Muhammad Ali was preceded by a tolling of the ten count on the ring bell.
This happened within ear-shot of the splendid Ali exhibition, I Am The Greatest, which is housed in another quadrant of the 02 complex.
Well that lasted the first ten seconds of the first round. The big rigtht was uncorked after that and although Breazeale punched back some AJ combinations soon followed.
Joshua lands a lovely left-hand counter but is being very economical and just feeling Breazeale out here early on. Anthony Joshua is on his way to the ring now, as a video plays on the big screen with Joshua's voice-over That's right, only one of these men will leave the ring tonight with their undefeated record in tact and that IBF world title belt around their waist.
He's still nursing an injury which ruled him out of Belgium's Euro campaign and will likely see him miss the start of the Premier League season.
One road led up towards the possibility of another world super-middleweight title shot, the other downhill in the direction of retirement sooner rather than later.
George Groves lives to fight another day on his climb for the dream which has kept eluding him. Murray had come closer to that belt before this night but his world championship days are surely over.
Both men had promised the fight to steal the 02 night. Despite a somewhat wary beginning they kept their word.
Murray: 'I got beat by a better man tonight Obviously I'm gutted, we had a great training camp. Great show of respect from these two warriors as they touch gloves ahead of the final round.
Murray comes out swinging, then tries to stalk into the pocket trough Groves jab, but he's too illusive and picks Murray off with a body shot.
Murray swings again and Groves has already exited. With a minute left Groves decides to try and put a stamp on it and wobbles Murray who only stays up due to the ropes as Groves stumbles as well.
Murray is hurt and on the run, he survives though, both men exhausted. Fantastic fight. Chants of 'One Martin Murray' seeping from the O2 as fans try and inspire their man.
