HISTORY: On April 19, 2016 at the Q2 Arena in London, England IBF heavyweight champion Charles Martin defended his title against Anthony Joshua. Joshua knocked Martin out in the 2nd round to win the title. 2012 Olympic Super Heavyweight gold medalist Joshua knocked down IBF champion Martin down with straight right hands twice in second round. Martin beat the count the first time, but was unable to rise the second time. "Every fight it gets better and better and better. I've come to knock people out. Every heavyweight's got power, it's about speed and precision and staying focused. I told you I would come out and punish him, and this is the reward. I stayed tucked away in the gym. Keep on pushing supporting, following the sport.", said Anthony Joshua after the bout. "I'm very humble. Anyone's dreams are possible. Just follow your dreams." "His aspiration is to unify all of the belts and he will. This is the real deal and he'll beat everybody," said promoter Eddie Hearn after the bout. "Charles Martin didn't move his head. He believed he had a good chin. He never got knocked down in the ring or in sparring. I don't care who you are, if you get hit by someone 6'6" you are going to go down," noted ringside commentator David Haye, who still hoped for the opportunity to fight Joshua. "I didn't see any tonight (weaknesses). I didn't see anything (I could use). The way I fight is completely different (from Martin). I relish the opportunity to fight someone like Martin. Myself and Anthony Joshua, I can't think of a bigger fight for boxing." Facing a Wladimir Klitschko rematch, lineal world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury lost a bet of 1000 pounds Martin would win by knockout. "His (Joshua's) right hand was fast. I didn't see the shot. He has got good speed. It was a loud atmosphere (at O2 Arena) but it wasn't evil. There was no cursing. I liked it here. He (Joshua) was a better man on this night", noted Charles Martin, who said he would be back. Offered here is an original, full, unused ticket for this event.
