Anthony Joshua: "I'm still improving"

Anthony Joshua says that his focus is on now his November dates following last night's win over Paul Butlin.

British heavyweight Anthony Joshua has turned his attention to his November 14 date following his second professional victory last night.

The 24-year-old Olympic gold medallist stopped Paul Butlin in the second round of their bout in Sheffield, just over three weeks since blitzing Italy's Emanuele Leo at the O2 Arena.

Joshua is booked for two shows in November - at York Hall on the 14th and at the MEN on the 23rd - and is also pencilled in for December 14 as he seeks to build his reputation.

"I'm still improving, still cracking on," Joshua told Sky Sports News. "It's always good to get a win because now I can get ready for November 14.

"[Butlin] is a tough guy, I like someone who comes to fight, and that's what he did."

Kell Brook defeated Vyacheslav Senchenko in the fourth round of last night's main event at the Motorpoint Arena.
