While it was a win for the 28-year-old, he lost his 100 percent knockout record, setting for points instead.

For the first time ever, Joshua failed to knock out an opponent, instead defeating Parker via aunanimous decision of 118-110, 118-110, 119-109.

Joshua, after the fight, told Sky Sports "IBO, WBO, WBA, IBF". You can't defend all the belts at once and the only way you get around it is by having a unification fight.

"We didn't quite do enough today to win the fight".

Parker used his jab regularly in the opener, with Joshua controlling the centre of the ring and landing with hooks and body shots.

Trump wants military to secure border with Mexico until wall is built
This is not new as "caravans of immigrants" have become an annual event meant to showcase the Central American refugee crisis. Trump said at the White House , seated beside the defense secretary at a meeting with visiting leaders of Baltic nations.

"My strategy was to stick behind the jab", Joshua said.

Joshua sees himself as more than just a big puncher, regularly referring his "finesse" and "boxing prowess".

"I say my little prayer in the corner". I was focused and 12 rounds baby.

Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KOs), the former WBO, WBA, IBF Heavyweight Champion is another possible opponent for Joshua.

Joshua took home a £13 million purse and Parker £7 million.

Donors Pledge $2 Billion to Scale Up Aid Delivery in Yemen [EN/AR]
The Saudi-led coalition said it thwarted a Houthi attack on a Saudi oil tanker on Tuesday, Al Arabiya local news reported . The UN has said that three-quarters of Yemen's population - about 22 million people - need some form of aid.

The victor of the much-anticipated fight; Anthony Oluwafemi Joshua, is expected to face the undefeated WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder, who recently produced a tenth-round stoppage to beat Joe Ortiz to set up a clash with either Parker or Joshua. A matchup between the two would decide the undisputed world heavyweight champion. So this does become a boxing match, not a fight.

"2018 was always a time to capture all the belts", said Joshua, flanked by promoter Eddie Hearn and trainer Rob McCracken. He has already visited NY for negotiations but it gets complicated with Wilder's affairs being handled by co-managers Shelly Finkel and Al Haymon, and Haymon's business partner Luis DeCubas Jr.

He said all the right things in the immediate aftermath; disappointed but determined to come back bigger and better, and in theory this experience in front of a partisan and in some cases unpleasant crowd of 78,000 should make him a better fighter. "I am balanced. We are still hustling, We are on to the next one, and in my eyes, it's not time to sit back and enjoy the ride".

It's hard to argue with what AJ says here, as it was a thoroughly professional performance that saw him walk away with four world titles and an unmarked face. "Why do I have to do all this work to have to give someone a bonus".
