For the most part, even the naysayers on the sport of boxing are rather quiet today on what was a real showcase for boxing as whole.
Promoter Eddie Hearn who is Joshua’s promoter and put on the event with others last night, came in for some flack straight after the fight however from the 90,000 people who were in attendance:

Well, that must not have felt too good for old Eddie Hearn. Although we suspect he’ll be rather happy today after what no doubt a big hit on the box office and on pay per view.
Joshua is now by far the biggest boxing star to come out of Britain in recent years. Most likely he’s now the biggest star in world boxing too since Floyd Mayweather retired.
For once people were not talking about the whole Mayweather vs McGregor carnival and rumor mill this weekend. A fight which still has not even be made either.
Instead, they were left talking about a genuinely classic heavyweight title match between two guys who did not need to trash talk to sell the fight whatsoever.
