How Twitter reacted to Anthony Joshua’s title win

| 10.04.2016

It was another uncompromising performance from Anthony Joshua, but this time he picked up a belt for his troubles.

The British heavyweight continued to fuel the hype surrounding him by beating IBF champion Charles Martin inside two rounds. Naturally the best reaction to such an astonishing feat came on Twitter.

Here’s a roundup at some of the 140-character scribbles that emerged:

As you’d expect, Tyson Fury, the other British heavyweight world champ, had something to say

As did the division’s other belt holder, Deontay Wilder

Plenty of fighters, both former, current and from all ring shapes, aired their opinions too

Here’s the two punches that floored Martin in the second round

Michael Owen shared his cross-sport expertise

While the defeated champion drew more talk for his ring walk than his performance once he got there

But perhaps Pointless host Richard Osman won Best Tweet of the Night
