Anthony Joshua unified three of the world's heavyweight titles courtesy of a unanimous points decision against Joseph Parker at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff this evening.

It was Joshua's 21st straight win and he added Parker's WBO belt to his WBA and IBF titles.

"I thought today we were beaten by a better man", said Parker, who lost for the first time in 25 fights.

But though the win didn't carry the usual panache the Joshua bandwagon will roll on relentlessly with another a multi million contest against the American WBC title holder Wilder probably next on the agenda.

In truth, neither man landed a telling combination of blows all night but Joshua was clearly pleased to have proved his doubters wrong by lasting the full 36 minutes without Parker causing him any issues of note. "Get him (Wilder) in the ring, and I'll knock him spark out", Joshua promised.

"I think 2018 was about getting all the belts and we are one away now".

The British fighter took the early rounds, which were very cagey, before Parker came back into the bout, landing some shots and troubling his opponent.

Cleveland Indians vs. Seattle Mariners Matchup
The Mariners lost Saturday afternoon 6-5 to the Cleveland Indians , but the play heard 'round baseball belonged to Ichiro . If a theme can be deduced from the Mariners first three games, it's that surprises could be in store on a daily basis.

Wenger still has the hunger for Gunners glory, insists Bould
He's doing a great job, as far as I'm concerned and has done a great job for an awfully long time ". I couldn't do the same as Henry, Ronaldo and the like and you have to know this to play there".

And Joshua's camp seem ardent in their approach to negotiations, with promoter Eddie Hearn - Barry's son - stating they have repeatedly overpaid opponents to face Joshua and will not resort to "charity" when it comes to Wilder, who turned down an invitation to sit ringside in Cardiff. So let's get the business done.

Now let's not pursue an accusation of bias, but often there is subconscious bias etc, etc and I think anyone that knows boxing would not deny that the referee's style of conduct suited Joshua and not Parker, but we're not going to use that as an excuse. We believe in answered prayers and we believe prayers assisted Joshua to get the win over Parker because the fight could have gone either way. Both fighters were rather cautious for the first few rounds of the fight as they felt each other out.

"I could beat AJ in my comeback, treble a jab up, swing the right hand up, downstairs, upstairs, ain't good enough to be a sparring partner'".

For Saturday's fight, Parker attracted the attention of fans in Samoa, where his parents were born and he has a chieftaincy title while Joshua had the backing of fans in Nigeria.

"I am a work in progress".

Reflecting on his loss, Parker said: "We enjoyed being here".

"Just watching these two and I'm telling you they're a pair of wooden tops", Fury said in posts that have since been removed.
