  • Joshua and Povetkin will hit the scales in London

The 28-year-old fights at Wembley Stadium for the first time since his 11th-round stoppage of Wladimir Klitschko led to a fine and respected champion's retirement while establishing him among the world's leading fighters today.

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.

Joshua said Povetkin was one of the toughest challengers.

Still flawless: Anthony Joshua celebrates defeating Alexander Povetkin in their heavyweight title fight.

LONDON, ENGLAND - SEPTEMBER 22: Anthony Joshua celebrates victory over Alexander Povetkin during the IBF, WBA Super, WBO & IBO World Heavyweight Championship title fight between Anthony Joshua and Alexander Povetkin at Wembley Stadium on September 22, 2018 in London, England.

"I was going to fight Luis Ortiz three or four years ago", Whyte said.

The iPhone X lasted about 9.5 hours in our own WiFi battery test, coming in well behind most other flagships previous year . But it turns out that inside, it's the iPhone XS that diverges with an unusual new battery design.

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.

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. You can't beat me.

(Joshua's) not an Instagram champion he's a proper champion.

Former heavyweight world title challenge Scott Welch has no doubts that Joshua is now on the way to becoming the world's richest sportsman. There's no waiting six months or one year. Povetkin rocked Joshua again in round two forcing Joshua to hold on. But before getting that superfight against Wilder, Joshua will have to get past Povetkin.

Askin will prove to be his toughest opponent to date, but a win for Okolie could push him to where he wants to go. "We both showed that against Klitschko. Let's see if Wilder-Fury actually happens".
