     Joshua vs Povetkin AJ is set to pocket MEGA money

World Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua maintains his impressive win record after knocking out Russian boxer Alexander Povetkin to retain WBA, IBF & WBO titles at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

Britain's Anthony Joshua and Russia's Alexander Povetkin pose during the weigh-in at the Business Design Centre in London, Friday, Sept. 21, 2018.

Joshua first wobbled Povetkin with a right hand, followed by a left before the telling left hook and right hand sent the challenger crashing to the canvas.

"I had a good fight, I got my knockout streak back and Im ready for 13 April".

Showing tremendous bravery Povetkin tried to get back up and momentarily stood up against Joshua, but the younger man wasn't letting his opponent get his breath back and Joshua delivered another host of damaging blows and Povetkin was stopped to the mass celebrations of a huge Wembley crowd.

He added: 'I don't know this is boxing it's a amusing thing - he may need surgery after what happened to his nose.

For Povetkin, this is likely to be the end at the top level and he gave it his all, wobbling Joshua on a few occasions early.

The fight promises to be Joshua's toughest bout since his thrilling stoppage of former champion Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley in April a year ago. Povetkin (34-1, 24 KO's), who fought on the undercard, scored a brutal fifth-round KO over David Price.

Povetkin, who in 2016 was given an indefinite ban from boxing after testing positive for the banned substance meldonium that was later cut to a year, had insisted in the build-up he was a far stronger fighter than the one beaten by Klitschko.

"I know you have got a big punch, I know you are unbeaten, I know you have got a big mouth, and I know you want to win, but you don't want it like I do", Fury said in a video addressing Wilder on social media.

Heavyweight world titleholder Deontay Wilder and former world champion Tyson Fury finalized their deal Friday night, and Premier Boxing Champions announced the fight would take place December 1.
