Even though, British-Nigerian boxing champ, Anthony Joshua still has a way to go before he is mentioned in the same breath as Lennox Lewis – he showed that he is well on the way after breaking Lewis’ heavyweight record.
According to Daily Star UK, boxing writer Steve Bunce explained AJ’s remarkable achievement, which was largely lost amid the noise of his victory over Carlos Takam at the Principality Stadium last month.
“Anthony Joshua just set a record for a British heavyweight world champion,” Bunce explained.
“When he beat Carlos Takam, he became the first guy to make four defences of his world heavyweight title because Lennox Lewis lost in his fourth attempt.
“When Lennox Lewis first held the title, he lost in his fourth defence to Oliver McCall so Anthony Joshua holds the record.
