Anthony Joshua Finishes Alexander Povetkin In The 7th Round

23 September, 2018, 06:36 | Author: Conrad Doyle
  • Anthony Joshua was made to work hard to overcome Alexander Povetkin

"It's alright fighting men who are 39 years old, half your size".

Fighting in his hometown with almost 85,000 noisy compatriots, Joshua got his nose bleeding after being hit by an overhand right in the opening round. PHOTO Russia's Alexander Povetkin (2nd L) falls backwards after Britain's Anthony Joshua (R) throws a punch to knock him to the canvas during their boxing world Heavyweight title fight at Wembley Stadium.

"I'm a physical, strong guy".

"My number one would be Wilder, let's not talk about a number two or three", Joshua said, although the British fighter then added that if Dillian Whyte wanted to fight he is "also more than welcome".

However, his plan to become the undisputed world heavyweight champion may have to wait a little longer as WBC title holder Wilder announced earlier on Saturday a showdown with former world champion Fury on December 1 in the United States.

Trump challenges professor over Brett Kavanaugh sex assault claim
Her lawyers say the professor's life has been turned upside down, having received death threats and been forced out of her home. Hope said she is skeptical of Ford's story because she can't specify where and when the alleged assault took place.

Joshua is now 22-0 in his boxing career.

With Joshua locked in to stage another fight at London's Wembley Stadium on April 13 next year, Wilder's December bout casts doubt on who might provide the opposition.

Joshua, 28, had a significant height and reach advantage of several inches over Povetkin.

But Joshua, who had a 4-inch height advantage and weighed in almost two stones heavier (246 pounds to Povetkin's 222), made better use of his jab later in the third round.

In the fourth, a cut to the Russian's left eye after taking a good right hand seemed to reflect his increasingly ragged approach, as he swung wildly without setting up the shots.

Three babies stabbed in attack in nursery in NY
Three infants and two adults were stabbed early Friday at home day-care center in NY , a police spokesman said. Police arrived and discovered the woman in the basement kitchen with self-inflicted knife wounds on her arm.

'Hopefully, it's me next, I'm here and ready to fight'.

Joshua, who said Thursday that "my well is deep, my heart can definitely go through hell and back", was certainly being tested in the opening exchanges, although he did start to respond with some single-punch jabs.

Not only did he keep his composure after almost having his nose broken in the opening around against Takam, Joshua avoided getting rattled after blood began to pour from it in the opening round on Saturday against Povetkin. But the extended build has allowed both to grow and may end up making the expected April 13 date (regardless of whether Joshua faces Wilder or Fury) an even better classic than had it taken place earlier.

"Povetkin is a very tough challenger and he proved it tonight", Joshua told Sky Sports.

Povetkin again rocked Joshua with a short left hook in the third round, after he had landed a big overhand right, and the champion looked nervous.
