http://ringnews24.com/images/pixel.gifYoung boxing sensation Anthony Joshua continued his early success as a pro with a second-round stoppage victory against Hrvoje Kisicek on Thursday night.

EuroSport.com summed up the result:


London's York Hall was rocking in anticipation of the 24-year-old, who made it three for three in knockout victories to start out his professional career this fall. He didn't waste any time going after the outmatched Kisicek, punishing him throughout the first round.

When it continued into the second round, Joshua wasted no time getting after Kisicek again and ended things midway through the round.


It's safe to say the hype will continue for Joshua after another dominating performance. The 6'6" heavyweight has made headlines as a future star in the sport, and adding another KO to his resume will be well received.

Joshua himself took to Twitter moments after the victory to thank his supporters:


Ian Wright, former English football player and icon in the nation, gave a bit of criticism for his 700,000-plus followers:


Wright had somewhat of a point. Kisicek just looked overmatched from the get-go, as the athletic Joshua ran circles around the now 5-7 Croatian, which made for an easy win for the British boxer.


Joshua was as advertised in his third bout as a pro, possessing overpowering strength, conditioning and speed. He simply was unhittable for Kisicek.

The Matchroom Sport-sponsored heavyweight has gotten off to just about as strong of a start to his career as possible. None of his three matches have gone over two rounds.

Up next for Joshua is a Nov. 23 bout with Hector Alfredo Avila in Manchester, followed by a Dec. 14 tilt with Dorian Darch in London.
