Anthony Joshua to make 2nd defense of IBF title in November

ONDON (AP) — British fighter Anthony Joshua says he will make the second defense of his IBF heavyweight title in November in the northern English city of Manchester.

Joshua's challenger at the Manchester Arena on Nov. 26 will be announced at the end of September.

In a statement, Joshua says "it has taken a bit of time to officially announce the fight. We want this to be a spectacular show, all the way up the card, and it takes time to get these things right."

The 2012 Olympic champion improved his professional record to 17-0 by stopping Dominic Breazeale in seven rounds in June in London.
