Joshua Stops Povetkin, Maintains Claim to the Heavyweight Throne

Posted September 23, 2018

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. Povetkin struggled to his feet but Joshua finished him with a brutal right hand that sent him to the deck again as the fight was being waved off. Neither man has been beaten, with Fury boasting a 27-fight winning streak and Wilder producing 39 knockouts from 40 professional wins.

"This is not new to me, this feels like home", he said ahead of a bout that pits two former Olympic boxing champions against each other, Joshua having won gold at London 2012 and Povetkin at Athens 2004.

Povetkin was 100.7 kilograms (222 pounds).

Kavanaugh accuser demands Federal Bureau of Investigation probe before testifying
Kavanaugh, who has denied the assault allegation, met with officials at the White House on Tuesday for a second straight day. The Judiciary Committee's role is not to determine guilt or innocence but advise the Senate on whether to confirm Kavanaugh.

"I'm sure you know this, I can tell by the way you look at him".

Back at the stadium where beat the great Wladimir Klitschko in an 11-round thriller previous year, Joshua again went to the trenches against a high-class opponent.

Both fighters confirmed the news in respective posts on their Instagram accounts as Wilder prepares for the most high profile fight of his career while Fury attempts to reclaim his world heavyweight title after mounting a comeback following a 30 month absence from the sport.

Madden video game thinks Patriots robbed Browns in Josh Gordon trade
Still, the move can be labeled as a low risk for the Patriots, especially considering what they sent back to the Browns. He missed training camp to receive treatment and the Browns were cautiously optimistic he would help them this season.

The undercard of that fight saw Povetkin serve notice of his formidable punching power with a sickening knockout of Britain's David Price. Saturday's fight offers Povetkin a chance to win back the WBA title that he lost to Klitschko after four title defenses. He started well, too, exploding out of the blocks to land a few good shots, and produce blood from Joshua's nose.

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.
