Watch Anthony Joshua’s Wembley return for FREE

The promoter of Anthony Joshua watched his man come through a first-round scare at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night as the Olympic gold medallist retained his unified world heavyweight champion status with a seventh-round stoppage.

His victory over Povetkin means he has won all 22 professional fights - with 21 of those ending with knock outs.

A previously close contest turned in Joshua's favour decisively when he sent the Russian crashing to the canvas with a straight right hand and left hook.

It forms part of a packed line-up of great fights coming up soon, with Saul "Canelo" Alvarez fighting "GGG" Gennady Golovkin, Anthony Joshua vs Alexander Povetkin and even Floyd "Money" Mayweather set to face Manny Pacquiao once more.

"I got my knockout streak back".

Already in possession of the WBO, WBA and IBF heavyweight belts, that fight between Wilder and Fury will determine whether or not the American Wilder remains in possession of his WBC belt, and who Joshua will potentially have to overcome should he seek to become the first undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis.

Anthony Joshua delivers the knockout blow on Alexander Povetkin.

"When I fought Klitschko, I was much weaker and in worse shape than I am now", he said.

The fight promises to be Joshua's toughest bout since his thrilling stoppage of former champion Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley in April past year.

However, he slimmed down for his last bout versus Joseph Parker. Povetkin (34-1, 24 KO's), who fought on the undercard, scored a brutal fifth-round KO over David Price.

If Joshua gets the victory Saturday, it could set up a long-awaited bout with Wilder, who now holds the WBC world heavyweight title and has a 40-0 record that includes 39 knockouts.

Wilder, an American, versus former champion Fury is widely regarded as a bigger and more significant fight than Joshua's 22nd professional win, but Joshua insists he wants the victor. He started well, too, exploding out of the blocks to land a few good shots, and produce blood from Joshua's nose.
