Fierce Anthony Joshua TKO Ends Povetkin's Serious Challenge

Nigeria born British world heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua

"I know you've got a big punch, I know you're big, I know you've got a big mouth and I know you want to win but you don't want it like I do".

It will be either the winner of the all-British clash between Dillian Whyte and Dereck Chisora or the Wilder-Fury victor.

Friday's weigh-in also confirmed a significant size difference, with Joshua tipping the scales at 17 stone 8 pounds (111.5 kilogrammes) compared to Povetkin's 15st 12lbs.

Anthony Joshua proved too good for Alexander Povetkin in their heavyweight bout in London.

United Kingdom rapper Nines, meanwhile, performed a spin of his song "I see you shining" as the intro for Joshua to come out for his ring walk. However, Joshua and his promoter, Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Boxing, ultimately elected to go for a deal with Povetkin, one of Joshua's mandatory challengers.

Joshua vs Povetkin Live Stream - What channel is it on?

As AJ celebrated in the ring and even mentioned Whyte's name, things got a bit awkward on Sky Sports as the Brit fumed at missing the chance to climb in the ring with Joshua. Joshua may have sustained a broken nose.

The loss was just the second of 39-year-old Povetkin's 36-fight career - his only other defeat was to Wladimir Klitschko, who Joshua scored a TKO win over last year to claim three of his four world titles.

Joshua, 28, originally from Watford but now living in north London and training in Sheffield, was more composed in the fourth round and his work left Povetkin cut above his left eye. Joshua landed a sudden straight right hand that hurt Povetkin and followed it up with a combination that ended with a right hook that sent Povetkin down.
