Anthony Joshua sets up Deontay Wilder clash with stunning right hand to finish Robert Helenius
Anthony Joshua reminded the heavyweight division about his power as he stopped Robert Helenius in the seventh session at London’s O2 Arena.
Joshua was once again cautious in the fight’s early stages, even drawing some boos from those in attendance, but that all change with a brilliant right hand that connected on 'The Nordic Nightmare'.
Joshua began the fight using his jab looking for openings and his calm approach made life easy for Helenius who appeared fine with the fight’s pace.
Joshua did use his right hand sparingly in the fight’s first half and after setting it up throughout, he was finally able to execute it with significant purpose which Helenius had no answer to.
The immediate focus for Joshua now is a showdown with Deontay Wilder next year in a mouthwatering contest that has been years in the making.
The knockout will give Joshua’s confidence a massive lift and he can now head into a Wilder battle on the back of an impressive stoppage.
