Anthony Joshua knocks out Povetkin

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.

Previously convicted for his doping offences, many had felt it would be something of an aberration had the Russian fighter claimed the win on the night.

Standing at 6-foot-6 with an 82-inch reach, the 28-year-old Joshua has a noticeable size advantage over the 6-foot-2 Povetkin.

Now boxing fans will wait and see whether Joshua and WBC champion Deontay Wilder can come to terms on a bout for the undisputed heavyweight title.

Anthony Joshua has weighed in about 11 kilograms heavier than Alexander Povetkin ahead of their heavyweight title fight in London. I just signed my end of the deal and the contract for the Wilder fight.

After an early chess match in which Joshua suffered a bloodied nose before cutting his rival, the Briton grew in confidence and a savage right hand followed by a left hook began an onslaught which would prove telling.

Former heavyweight world title challenge Scott Welch has no doubts that Joshua is now on the way to becoming the world's richest sportsman. And if it is not Wilder next up, Joshua could find himself facing the 27-0 Tyson Fury after Povetkin.

"We've been away for a while, we're back now with Alexander Povetkin", Joshua told a news conference on Thursday. When I fought Klitschko, I was much weaker and in worse shape than I am now.

Asked who would win between Wilder and Fury, Joshua replied: "I'm not too fussed who wins, I only concentrate on myself. If it's not Deontay Wilder then it will be Dillian Whyte on April 13". "We're both beasts, we're both lions in the jungle". I'm fighting the best of the best and it's tougher, but ultimately they're getting someone just as tough and it does take a lot out of them.
