Povetkin got tagged with several good jabs by Joshua in the sixth round. Let's ask the question, I have no mandatories, ' he said. "I've got my strength back, my body has been broken down and put back like never before", he added.

Promoters Haymon Boxing said in a statement reported by U.S. media that Wilder and Fury would meet at a venue to be determined. You can't beat me.

Undefeated heavyweight champion of the world Anthony Joshua wants to face American Deontay Wilder in his next Wembley showpiece.

Anthony Joshua has defended his WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight titles with a seventh-round stoppage of Alexander Povetkin at Wembley.

"There is a lot of pressure the whole country is rooting for us. I'm going to show you guys - there you go".

Klitschko was the only man to have previously inflicted a blemish on Povetkin's now 36-fight record, with a points win back in 2013.

The Briton returns to Wembley with an expected sell-out crowd set to be in attendance in the hope of seeing something special.

And this is how social media reacts to Anthony Joshua's victory over his challenger Alexander povetkin. Joshua capitalised on his aggression in a way that Klitschko could not, dropping him once before stopping him on his feet.




Both fighters confirmed the news in respective posts on their Instagram accounts as Wilder prepares for the most high profile fight of his career while Fury attempts to reclaim his world heavyweight title after mounting a comeback following a 30 month absence from the sport.

However, he slimmed down for his last bout versus Joseph Parker.

Both men had won Olympic gold medals, but it was the youthful energy of the 28-year-old Joshua which proved decisive as Povetkin visibly exhausted halfway through the contest.

Deontay Wilder will defend his WBC heavyweight title against Tyson Fury on December 1 at a venue yet to be confirmed.

.

Joshua's first fight in London since defeating Vladimir Klitschko there in 2017, tonight's Russian opponent was thought to potentially cause the British fighter some problems.

'He is a special talent and a great model. "Povetkin is very game and loves to fight, this is his big opportunity and he has the whole nation of Russian Federation behind him".

"We will go away now and try and make a fight with Wilder", Hearn said.

"Let's figure out what's happening on April 13", said Joshua.
