Anthony Joshua vs Alexander Povetkin in another huge world-heavyweight clash, slated for Saturday, September 22, 2018 at Wembley Stadium (London).
The Russian is the mandatory challenger to Joshua’s WBA title and the Briton will also be defending his WBA Super, IBF, WBO and IBO belts when the two fighters meet.
Joshua last fought at Wembley when stopping Wladimir Klitschko in April 2017, while different comments have been flowing about the match that will gather over 80,000 people.
According to 5 live Boxing’s Steve Bunce “I think there’s pressure on him, a weight on his shoulders, there is no way it doesn’t affect him when he is having the boot stuck into him.”
In his answer to newsmen when asked how he feels going into the fight, Joshua gave up an issue many feel is eating away at him going into this bout. How, after 21 fights, 21 wins and with three major world titles to his name, does criticism still manage to flow his way?
As always, the starting time largely depends on how the fight night is progressing, but expect the ring walk to begin at around 10pm with the fight starting afterwards.
