Bloodied Anthony Joshua knocks out Alexander Povetkin in seventh round

Since adding his third world title with March's victory over Joseph Parker, the return of Tyson Fury and frustration over his inability to secure a unification match-up with WBC champion Deontay Wilder has threatened that very reputation. Obviously I've not been out there knocking people out (in the early rounds) like I used to, but it's different, top-tier fighters at the top end.

"He proved that with good left hooks, counter punches".

"Joshua's a real world champion, we will go away now and try and make a fight with Wilder".

'Let's see whats happening on April 13.

Povetkin, 39, knew this was most likely his last shot after being floored four times in a unanimous points loss to Wladimir Klitschko five years ago.

What Canelo is at the box offices in America, so is IBF/WBA/WBO unified belt holder Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs) on the east side of the pond.

And the WBA mandatory challenger showed just how risky he could be by stiffening Joshua's legs with a right uppercut to the jaw followed by a left hook toward the end of the first round.


Povetkin had a cut open up by his left eye in the fourth round, and by the fifth round Joshua had landed 30 jabs to the 2 jab that Povetkin landed. Povetkin was aggressive and tried to hurt Joshua with short right hands, but often landed on the guard of Joshua or swung at air.

Today is the first live boxing broadcast for DAZN in the United States, featuring Anthony Joshua and Alexander Povetkin, from Wembley Stadium in London, where more than 80,000 fans are expected to attend.

Who is the better coach, Mourinho or Conte?

"This is not new to me, this feels like home", he said ahead of a bout that pits two former Olympic boxing champions against each other, Joshua having won gold at London 2012 and Povetkin at Athens 2004.

Then come the seventh round he unleashed a flurry of punches to send Povetkin down.

Povetkin looked hurt but was able to get back to his feet, but was still badly hurt.

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.
