Joshua vs Povetkin: Dillian Whyte hoping for Anthony Joshua rematch

Joshua vs Povetkin: Dillian Whyte hoping for Anthony Joshua rematch

"I realised he was strong to the head but weak to the body", declared Joshua after his victory.

Wilder then answered back, "I can't wait to fight you, because I am gonna knock you out".

But Joshua, who had a four-inch height advantage and weighed in almost two stones heavier (246 pounds to Povetkin's 222), made better use of his jab later in the third round.

Povetkin's defeat by Klitschko came on the same night Joshua made his professional debut by stopping the little-known Emanuele Leo at the 02 Arena, when even for all of the excitement surrounding Joshua, it was Klitschko-Povetkin that demanded the greatest attention. "Every jab takes a breath out of you and I slowed him down".

Povetkin, who has had two doping convictions, hauled himself off the canvas to halt the party, but his stay of execution was fleeting as Joshua charged back in to secure a 21st knockout in 22 professional fights.

The venue and date of Joshua's next fight have always been determined - Wembley Stadium, April 13 - but the opponent is still unclear.

Wilder said in a video posted to his Instagram account that he just defeated one of the best heavyweights in the world in Luis Ortiz earlier this year and that he's now coming for the next best fighter in the division. Both boxers shipped punishment, with Povetkin sporting a significant cut to the left eye. Bigger names may loom large on the horizon, but Joshua will know better than to overlook his challenger.

Povetkin, who won Olympic gold in 2004, is the mandatory challenger for the WBA title - but all four of Joshua's divisional belts will also be on the line in London. Joshua landed a sudden straight right hand that hurt Povetkin and followed it up with a combination that ended with a right hook that sent Povetkin down.

"Well, s-- just got serious".
