Joshua paying the price for his success


Eddie Hearn has claimed he will have to start paying 'danger money' in order to attract opponents for undefeated Anthony Joshua. Joshua made it nine wins from nine professional fights after crushing Denis Bakhtov to claim the WBC international heavyweight title at London's O2 Arena on Saturday.

The heavyweight, who has stopped all of his professional opponents within three rounds, is booked to face Michael Sprott on the undercard of the Tony Bellew-Nathan Cleverly rematch at Liverpool's Echo Arena next month.
