  • Joshua weighs in 11 kilograms heavier than Povetkin

Anthony Joshua delivered a stunning finish to stop a game Alexander Povetkin and retain his world heavyweight titles at Wembley Stadium.

Joshua versus Povetkin promises to be one the most entertaining fights of 2018, making it a must watch for even the most casual boxing fan. After sending the Russian to the canvas with a left-right combination after hurting him with a big right hand, the referee Steve Gray intervened to rescue Povetkin once he was back on his feet and unable to defend himself from another hurtful barrage of punches.

Povetkin represents a fearsome challenge for Joshua having only tasted defeat once in his career.

Also after engaging in an icy final stare-down, Alexander Povetkin is feeling "no pressure" ahead of today's heavyweight clash with Anthony Joshua.

"I'm sure you know this, I can tell by the way you look at him".

For Povetkin, this is likely to be the end at the top level and he gave it his all, wobbling Joshua on a few occasions early.


Joshua, born in nearby Watford but based in London, had been taken the distance for the first time as a professional in his last title defence - a unanimous points victory over New Zealand's Joseph Parker in Cardiff in March.

Klitschko is the only man to have inflicted a blemish on Povetkin's 35-fight record, with a points win back in 2013.

Britain's Tyson Fury will challenge Deontay Wilder for the American's World Boxing Council heavyweight crown on December 1, a statement said Friday. As the bout progressed, 39-year-old Povetkin began to slow down.

"The one who's toughest will come out victorious".

The clamour will now increase for Joshua to face the victor of the December 1 bout between WBC king Deontay Wilder and undefeated former champion Tyson Fury when he returns to this venue on April 13. Both boxers shipped punishment, with Povetkin sporting a significant cut to the left eye.
