Anthony Joshua bags quick win

The Olympic super-heavyweight champion is navigating his way into the paid ranks and had little trouble at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

Opening the show for the Carl Froch against George Groves rematch, the 24-year-old knocked Legg out with an uppercut after just one minute and 23 seconds.

Legg swung wildly, at least having a go at his accomplished opponent in the early rounds.

He was quickly punished, however, as an uppercut sent him crumbling to the canvas and unable to beat referee Steve Gray's count.

While the shot did not land as cleanly as Joshua would have liked, the Watford man's raw power was more than enough to see off the older man.

"It's brilliant to fight at Wembley on a night like this with all these people here," Joshua said.

"It's a small ring and I knew I could land on him."

Promoter Eddie Hearn revealed former world title challenger Matt Skelton could be Joshua's next opponent.
