Anthony Joshua knocks out Alexander Povetkin to retain titles

Joshua weighs in 11 kilograms heavier than Povetkin

Anthony Joshua returned to his knockout ways with a seventh-round stoppage win over Alexander Povetkin on Saturday night.

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

"I got my knockout streak back". I realized he was strong to the head but weak to the body so I was switching it up.

Joshua will pocket more than £15m from tonight's match.

In fact, Wilder and Fury will fight come December.

Senate candidates Cruz, O'Rourke square off in fractious debate
O'Rourke said he's concerned at the high numbers of black Americans who are killed by white police officers. O'Rourke is the only Democratic Senate candidate in these midterms who has vowed to vote to impeach Mr.

Joshua likely doesn't get the credit he deserves as a boxer with a smart IQ and DAZN announcer Sergio Mora spent much of the Povetkin fight commenting how Joshua's fluid combinations resemble more of a middleweight than anything heavyweight has recently seen.

This fight was the latest in a line of professional heavyweight title bouts, featuring the likes of Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier and George Foreman, between two former Olympic champions, with Joshua having won gold in front of his home crowd at the 2012 London Games - eight years after Povetkin stood atop the podium in Athens.

Povetkin (34-1, 24 KOs), 39, was impressively aggressive and consistently risky with left hooks and overhand rights.

Povetkin remained risky with his left hook and overhand right, but Joshua increasingly gained control through his jab and in the sixth landed a short right hand from close range that the Russian did well to shrug off.

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.

The book will feature 50 recipes written by ladies from the community with a foreword written by the Duchess of Sussex herself. And on Thursday in London, England, Meghan did the honors of giving her first royal speech as the Duchess of Sussex .

Joshua tipped the scales at 17st 8lbs 5oz at yesterday's weigh-in, with Povetkin nearly two stone lighter at 15st 12lbs.

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.

Povetkin climbed groggily to his feet, Joshua hit with a flurry of punches finishing with another right hand that finally end the fight. "The champion needs to get themselves over here to the United Kingdom and we'll have a good dust-up".

"If I had a pecking order it would be Wilder, Dillian (Whyte) and then Fury", Joshua told taskSPORT.
