In Britain the massively hyped Anthony Joshua (4-0, 4) continued his professional journey with a stoppage victory over Welshman Dorian Darch (7-3, 1). Darch did show some ambition and did tag Joshua with a few decent shots but lacked the skills or speed to really test Joshua who was too good, too big, too fast and too well schooled for the Welshman. Darch was brave and saw off a solid opening round assault but was rightly stopped in the second round.
Whilst Joshua is just at the start of his career we saw two men who probably should be retired, in action in Poland. For British Heavyweight Danny Williams (45-21-0-1, 34) things were bad as he was stopped in a round by former title challenger Andrzej Wawrzyk (28-1, 14) who was returning to the ring following his loss last year to Alexander Povetkn. The other man on the show, who should have retired, was Oliver McCall (57-13-0-2, 37) who upset the previously unbeaten Marcin Rekowski (12-1, 10). Whilst on paper this looks a good win for the 48 year old "Atomic Bull" it really just says more about Rekowski's competition so far, which has really been woeful.
Over in Russia the rotund Murad Khalidov (10-0, 5) returned from almost 4 years out to stop the hapless Sedrak Agagulyan (1-27-1) who has now been stopped 17 times. Agagulyan, rather ironically dubbed "The Executioner", is with out a win since a 2003 decision over Dmitry Gerasimov, who himself was 1-11 entering that bout. Interestingly this was the second bout between these two with Khalidov having taken a decision over Agagulyan back in 2008.
