Anthony Joshua knocks out Povetkin

Joshua and Povetkin will hit the scales in London

Joshua and Povetkin will hit the scales in London

Povetkin was struggling to keep up the rapid pace he showed earlier in the fight, but Joshua was getting stronger and it was his seventh round annihilation of Povetkin that extended his unbeaten record to 22 fights and he will now turn his attentions to a potential monster fight with the victor of Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury in April next year or even a bout against Dillian Whyte. However, it did not specify that it would be Showtime PPV, the broadcaster that will carry the fight, and there was also no announcement of a site. "It continues with stops in New York City and Los Angeles".

On Saturday, Fury's fellow Briton Anthony Joshua takes on Alexander Povetkin in a defence of his WBA, IBF and WBO world heavyweight titles at Wembley.

Fans want Joshua to face Wilder in a historic unification fight, and the three-belt world champion admitted the American was his No.1 choice.

The heavyweight division is the deepest it's been in nearly 20 years.

Siesta thinks an upset win by a mentally and physically well-prepared Povetkin (34-1, 24 KOs) could cause big problems for the promotional company behind Joshua, as Matchroom Boxing is planning to kick-off a lucrative partnership with live sports streaming platform, DAZN with this upcoming show.

"I don't make predictions, it will be an interesting and thrilling fight". It is officially on, ladies and gentlemen.

He said: "I'm up against one of the best fighters in the world". It's going to be an exciting fight; it's going to be an explosive fight. But, one matchup is going to have to wait. The best fighting the best, giving the people what they want, and this is what we're doing.

"Well, shit just got serious".

"I've got my knockout streak back and I found my right hand again", Joshua said. "It's signed, sealed and delivered", Fury said.

"If it's not Deontay Wilder then it will be Whyte here on April 13". "The energy in here spurs you on and I do feel that pressure". I will out-heart you.

"I believe this is going to be a great fight and I'm delighted to see the United Kingdom and Russian Federation working closer than ever before in this great sport".

A fierce 7th round Anthony Joshua TKO ended the challenge of Alexander Povetkin in tonight's heavyweight bout in Wembley Stadium.

In August, former world champion Fury registered a unanimous points victory over Francesco Pianeta in his second fight since returning from a two-and-a-half-year spell out of the sport.

Wilder and Fury have a history together. "It's on, baby", Wilder roared.

Povetkin got tagged with several good jabs by Joshua in the sixth round. "I'd rather have no money and win than 200 billion pounds ($261.5 billion) and lose", he added. Every victim that has stepped in the ring, I done knocked them out in devastating fashion.

The outspoken British fighter made his comeback earlier this year after a near two-and-a-half year absence, and immediately set his sights on a showdown with Wilder.
