Milton Keynes boxer Matt Legg was defeated in the first round against Antony Joshua at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night.

The 38-year-old faced the unbeaten Olympic champion Joshua on the hugely anticipated Carl Froch vs George Groves card in the national stadium, but lasted just 83 seconds before the referee stopped the fight.

Legg was knocked down with a right uppercut in the first round of their heavyweight fight, leaving him with a record of seven wins and three defeats, while for Joshua, 24, it was his sixth straight success.
