Anthony Joshua Emphatically KO’s Alexander Povetkin To Maintain Unbeaten Record

Anthony Joshua delivered a devastating seventh round knockout to defeat Russian boxer Alexander Povetkin at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, and retain his WBO, IBF, WBA and IBO world heavyweight championship belts.

The 28-year-old notched up his 22nd victory in 22 fights in front of an 80 000 crowd, since turning professional in 2013.

Povetkin, 39, suffered just his first defeat in 35 years, in a 13-year boxing career that has also seen him become an Olympic Gold Medalist.

Joshua earned £20 million for his efforts on the night while Povetkin only pocketed £6 million.
