Anthony Joshua Releases Super Slow-Mo Replay Of His Kubrat Pulev Knockout

The bigger they come, the harder they fall.

And that age-old theory was proved correct as Anthony Joshua knocked out Kubrat Pulev in devastating fashion.

The British fan favourite retained his WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight world championship over the weekend with a flawless display that culminated in a right hand bomb that dropped the Bulgarian challenger.

It wasn't the only time Pulev hit the deck during the bout either.

After his slight career blip against Andy Ruiz Jr last year, AJ looked back to his usual no-nonsense self and dropped his opponent a number of times before finally finishing the fight in the ninth round with a one-two combination.

The 31-year-old is now poised to take on WBC champ Tyson Fury in what's shaping up to be one of the biggest bouts in British boxing history.

And after his most recent victory, Joshua shared a super slow-motion replay of the brutal knockout on this social media channels, simply captioned: "Thanks for coming".

You can literally see Pulev fall for AJ's initial faint which left his head exposed for the knockout blow.

Then, before you know it, his head clatters off the canvas before the referee begins the count.

Instead, looked ahead to the future and immediately called out a fellow British heavyweight who is also looking to unify the division.

"I started this game in 2013, I've been chasing all the belts, I've been dealing with mandatories," Joshua said after the fight.

"Of course I want a challenge. It's not about the opponent, it's about the legacy and the belt. Whoever's got the belt, I'd love to compete with them.

"If that is Tyson Fury, let it be Tyson Fury. It's no big deal."

The Gypsy King had his say on the matter, claiming that AJ "s*** himself" during his live TV interview.

Either way, it seems a colossal clash between these two could definitely be on the cards at some point in the future.

You know what boxing is like though, let's just hope that bout happens sooner rather than later - while the two greats are still in their prime.
