Joshua vs Parker: Joshua Buatsi produces classy display on undercard

Ghana-born Joshua Buatsi extended his pro record to 5-0 after beating 52-fight veteran Bartlomiej Grafka in Cardiff on Saturday night.

Buatsi was in control throughout and badly damaged his experienced opponent's face but was made to settle for a points victory, decided 60-54 in his favour by the referee.

Grafka was down early, but it wasn't ruled a knock-down, and he soon became target practice for the calm Buatsi.

The London prospect head-hunted for a stoppage towards the end of the first round and, in the second, impressed with his inside-fighting although he berated himself when caught by a clumsy punch.

A fifth-round uppercut from Buatsi was the best punch of the fight, serving to wobble his opponent's legs, but Grafka was a tough nut to crack.

It was Buatsi's second fight at the Principality Stadium, having also featured on Joshua's undercard last October.
