Champion Joshua stops plucky Povetkin at Wembley

LONDON ENGLAND- SEPTEMBER 22 Anthony Joshua celebrates victory over Alexander Povetkin during the IBF WBA Super WBO & IBO World Heavyweight Championship title fight at Wembley Stadium

Povetkin (34-2) suffered just the second defeat and first knockout of his career despite appearing to win some early rounds against Joshua.

Povetkin remained unsafe 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 won with an explosive finish in the seventh. Neither man has been beaten, with Fury boasting a 27-fight winning streak and Wilder producing 39 knockouts from 40 professional wins.

What Canelo is at the box offices in America, so is IBF/WBA/WBO unified belt holder Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs) on the east side of the pond.

Welch, speaking in the Daily Telegraph, said: "I believe that Anthony Joshua will be the first billionaire fighter".

Also after engaging in an icy final stare-down, Alexander Povetkin is feeling "no pressure" ahead of today's heavyweight clash with Anthony Joshua.

The last time the 28-year-old fought at the national stadium, however, he defeated Wladimir Klitschko in stunning fashion, climbing off the canvas to stop the Ukrainian in the 11th round.

The only blemish on the Russian's 35-fight record is a 2013 points defeat by Klitschko.

Povetkin was fighting on that same night in Cardiff, when he knocked out David Price.

Joshua and his opponent from New Zealand went into this fight unbeaten, but the British overcame Parker who has never been down according to the commentator of the fight.

Fury, 30, is the former IBF, WBA, IBO and WBO heavyweight world champion.

Povetkin started the stronger of the two, landing some crucial blows and causing Joshua to bleed heavily from the nose with a shot that left the Watford-native wobbling. I think we've both got a big heart and can dig deep.

Nevertheless, come the end of the sixth he was still in the contest only for Joshua to seal victory barely two minutes later.

Joshua retained his WBA, IBF and WBO titles, with attention now switching to Wilder's fight with Tyson Fury on December 1.

Now Joshua is one WBC title short of becoming the undisputed heavyweight champion.
