Anthony Joshua to fight for commonwealth title

Anthony Joshua (13-0, 13 KOs) MBE will face Gary Cornish (21-0, 12 KOs) in his first major title bout with the vacant Commonwealth Heavyweight title on the line at The O2 in London on September 12, live on Sky Sports.

Joshua has raced to 13-0 with 13 devastating KO wins since turning pro and now looks to add major belts to his Olympic gold medal and now is looking to start to aim for titles as he fights for the regional Commonwealth title.

Scotsman Cornish will have other ideas though, as the unbeaten IBO Inter-Continental champion looks to travel south of the border and shock Joshua. The 28 year old is no stranger to boxing in London with three of his 12 KO wins from 21 fights coming in the English capital. The clash also represents a return to bigtime Heavyweight boxing for Kellie Maloney, who recently joined the Gary Cornish team to assist the Inverness man’s long-term manager and promoter Tommy Gilmour.


This will mark the biggest step-up in the career of Joshua to this point who has past with flying colors with each test thus far. Cornish has also faced limited opposition with less accolades in the amateurs, but will hopefully answer some questions about how Joshua acts against an opponent who at least has a pulse in the ring.
