Two-time world champion Anthony Joshua has defeated mixed martial arts star Francis Ngannou in just the second round of their widely-hyped heavyweight clash today , with his promoter quickly declaring him the division’s “number one” fighter.
Joshua had his Cameroonian opponent on the canvas in the first round and twice more in the second in a brutal and brief exhibition of punching power.

Ngannou, a former UFC heavyweight champion, was taking part in his second professional boxing match, having lost a split decision to Tyson Fury in an October fight that saw him put the WBC champion on the canvas in the third round.
Joshua, a former unified WBO, WBA and IBF heavyweight champion, went into the fight on the back of three successive wins.
