Anthony Joshua sent out a warning to the watching Wladimir Klitschko and you can see exactly how he did it.
The IBF world heavyweight world champion took less than three rounds to knock out Eric Molina and move to 18-0, all of them explosive finishes.
Joshua sized up the latest challenger but with Klitschko sitting ringside to agree their Wembley Stadium showdown next year and the Manchester Arena sold-out, it didn’t take long before he made another serious statement.
Molina was put down with a typically powerful right in the third round and although he made it back to his feet, it was a case of when, not if, the Brit would finish the job
Klitschko asked the audience: “Do you want to see a big fight? Do you want to see two Olympic champions in there? You got it.” The reception was rapturous.
There was heavyweight royalty everywhere in the house: Klitschko and Tyson Fury – one waiting for a last hurrah with Joshua, the other maybe already having bid us adieu – as well as the ever-loved Frank Bruno. David Haye was here for Sky, his loud irritant, Tony Bellew, about 10 yards away for the BBC; they kept their distance. In America, Wilder manned the Showtime microphone.
