Anthony Joshua faces Alexander Povetkin in what the British champion has described as the “second hardest fight” of his professional career. Povetkin, the mandatory challenger to the WBA title, has the potential to become Russia’s first ever unified world heavyweight champion, with Joshua’s IBF, WBO and IBO straps on the line too.
Another heavyweight fight for the ages, and what a night at the national football stadium as Anthony Joshua finished Alexander Povetkin in a dramatic seventh round to retain his three world heavyweight titles. Twenty-two fights, 22 victories. Afterwards Joshua identified his ideal next three fights.
