Anthony Joshua v Alexander Povetkin: Tale of the tape

Joshua and Povetkin will hit the scales in London

In a tense contest at Wembley Stadium, Joshua was rocked at the end of the first round and appeared to be wobbled again by his tough punching opponent before breaking his down with a flurry of punches in the seventh round.

"He's a proper fighter, he knows what he's doing", said Joshua, who owns the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO belts.

Anthony Joshua retained his International Boxing Federation, World Boxing Association and World Boxing Organisation heavyweight titles with a seventh-round stoppage of Alexander Povetkin at London's Wembley Stadium on Saturday. Knocking the Russian initially, Povetkin made it up within the count, but not for too long.

A mega fight between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder was just announced for December 1st on Showtime, and the victor of the Joshua and Povetkin fight will likely, and hopefully, face the victor of tonight's bout in the near future.

Anthony Joshua has weighed in about 11 kilograms heavier than Alexander Povetkin ahead of their heavyweight title fight in London.

McCabe memos say Rosenstein considered secretly recording Trump
But let me be clear about this: "Based on my personal dealings with the president, there is no basis to invoke the 25thAmendment". The Times reports that Rosenstein made the suggestions in a meeting with Andrew McCabe and other Justice Department officials.

"When I fought Klitschko, I was much weaker and in worse shape than I am now", he said. "Every jab takes a breath out of you and I slowed him down".

With Povetkin tiring Joshua produced an exquisite right hook which landed flush on the Russian and as he tried to withstand the power from the home favourite Joshua unleashed a multitude of accurate punches and Povetkin fell to the floor.

Joshua's promoter, Eddie Hearn, insists the world title unification fight has to happen next.

Now Joshua is one WBC title short of becoming the undisputed heavyweight champion. The two were working on getting a fight together for this year, but were unable to come to an agreement during their months of negotiations. And if it is not Wilder next up, Joshua could find himself facing the 27-0 Tyson Fury after Povetkin.

Joshua was not overly troubled by the combination, but it was the best attack of an entertaining first round and left the champion's nose streaming blood. Wilder goes, 'I'm not signing that'. 'We both did a lot of talking, I'm here now, I found my right hand and I'm lining up for April 13.
