Anthony Joshua vs. Alexander Povetkin was a heavyweight professional boxing match contested between undefeated and unified WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO champion Anthony Joshua, and former WBA (Regular) champion Alexander Povetkin. Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua might want to thank Alexander Povetkin. The Russian’s stunning one-punch knockout of Dillian Whyte on Saturday opened the door for an all-U.K. heavyweight. Povetkin appeared to shatter Joshua’s nose in the very first round but the Londoner regained control of the fight and finished it in sensational style, dropping the Russian twice before he was. Joshua dropped Povetkin with a left hand to the head in round seven. Povetkin got back up but Joshua was straight back in with a flurry of hard shots, prompting the referee to stop the fight.   At the time of stoppage, the three judges scorecards were 58–56 twice, and 59–55 in favour of Joshua.
Fury never did fight Klitschko, the other two belts were given up in time, Glazkov never fought again, and Joshua trounced Martin, who now in is back in the IBF mix on a three-fight win streak at age Joshua was, of course, the prized prospect of British boxing overall, and certainly in the heavyweight division, while Whyte had been beating up basically the same level of opposition but with nowhere near the hype.
The Russian tipped the scales at lbs 16st. Despite that shock in the first fight the UK bookmakers still make Dillian Whyte an odds-on favourite to gain revenge.
Alexander Povetkin has fought 39 times as a professional — registering 36 victories against two defeats with one draw. Povetkin was born in Kursk, Russa on September 2, and is currently 41 years old.
He stands 6ft 2ins tall and has a reach of 75 ins.

It was said that the banned substance was methylhexaneamine , which is also known as dimethylamylamine or 'DMAA'. Povetkin's camp confirmed the fight will still go ahead.
The test was taken of December 6. Stiverne later made a statement to tell everyone he will be heading home to Las Vegas and did not want to fight if the sanction was off, as that was the whole reason for him training and taking the fight in Russia.
Ryabinsky claimed that the test where he had tested positive contained 0,g traces of ostarine and a previous random test in November also came back negative.
After Stiverne withdrew himself from the title claiming he would be heading home, there was ongoing talks for WBC Silver heavyweight champion Johann Duhaupas , 21 KOs to step in and fight Povetkin instead.
Hours later it was confirmed that the fight would take place on short notice with no titles at stake. Povetkin had Duhaupas hurt in the 4th round after connecting with a right hand to the head.

Soon after the fight began Rudenko had problems right away. The fight almost came to an end in the first round after Povetkin accidentally hit Rudenko in the back of his neck with an overhand punch in the middle of a clinch.
Rudenko spent five minutes complaining that he had injured his neck while Povetkin waited patiently in the corner to resume but fans in attendance began to whistle in displeasure at Rudenko whom they saw as feigning injury.
The ringside doctor determined that Rudenko had a spasm and that Rudenko wanted to pull out of the fight. However the referee eventually persuaded Rudenko to continue.
During the interval between rounds eight and nine Rudenko again wanted to stop the fight but his corner firmly insisted on continuing.
Povetkin went on to control every round winning a one-sided fight on all three judges scorecards —, —, and — He was placed at 13 ranking.

Price hurt Povetkin late in round 3 with a left hook which resulted in Povetkin falling backwards towards the ropes. The referee ruled it a knockdown due to the ropes holding Povetkin up.
Price did not take advantage of the knockdown, but it looked as though he had tired himself out. From April up until the end of June , both camps of Anthony Joshua , 20 KOs and Deontay Wilder were in deep talks around the super fight to finally take place.
Many British pundits and trainers spoke around how Joshua should not underestimate Povetkin and how he would pose a big threat to Joshua.

In the post-fight interview, Joshua stated, "I've got my knockout streak back and I found my right hand again.
Alexander Povetkin is a very tough challenge. He provided that, he was good with left hook. I realized he was strong to the head but weak to the body so I was switching it up.
Every jab takes a breath out of you and I slowed him down. Povekin connected with 43 power shots compared to the 37 Joshua landed.
In November , according to his promoter Andrei Ryanbinsky, Povetkin would retire after two more fights. By the end of December , Povetkin recovered from elbow operations following his loss to Joshua and stated he would start a training camp in January , hoping for a fight in April.
A few names had been reported such as Dillian Whyte and Oleksandr Usyk. Povetkin scored a twelve-round unanimous decision against Hughie Fury on 31 August at the 02 Arena in London on the Vasyl Lomachenko vs.
Luke Campbell undercard. All of the officials had the bout exactly the same — — for Povetkin, who turned 40 two days later.

A replay was shown later in the evening, which averaged , viewers. It was reported that Joseph Parker 's team were looking at Lucas Browne as a potential match-up if they failed to land a unification fight with Joshua.
According to Higgins, a date in March was being discussed with Joshua's team, however Eddie Hearn offered an 80—20 split, which would favour Joshua.
Higgins spoke to Fairfax Media , saying the offer would need to be more reasonable, also taking into consideration the fight would take place in the UK.
Higgins made a final offer to Hearn on 22 November. He told Sky Sports, "It's our final bottom line decision.
We feel anything less is disrespectful or a disgrace. Higgins listed Camp Nou as the potential venue. Hearn jokingly said they were over-paying Parker, with the deal being 65— Higgins stated that a rematch clause would be in place for Joshua, should he lose.
A picture was posted on Twitter which revealed the scales that Joshua stood on, his weight was at Parker weighed in first at Joshua weighed The judges scored the fight — twice, and — in favour of Joshua.
With going the distance, Joshua's 20 fight knockout streak came to an end. Parker used his movement well to slip a lot of Joshua's attacks but in doing so did not do enough himself to win more rounds.
Parker started on the backfoot in the opening rounds allowing Joshua to gain a foothold. There was an accidental clash of heads in round three, however neither boxer was cut from this.
There was another accidental head-butt in round nine where the referee called for a short break. Joshua's tape on his left glove kept coming loose and he was ordered to go back to his corner for a re-tape.
Parker suffered a cut over his left eye after Joshua accidentally elbowed him. In round twelve, neither boxer engaged as much as expected with Joshua trying to track Parker down, who again, on the back-foot, looked to survive the round.
The fight was marred by Italian referee Giuseppe Quartarone, who kept both boxers from fighting on the inside.
This mostly had a negative impact on Parker, where he was seen to have the most success. The referee was breaking the action each time both boxers were on the inside, even when they were still throwing shots.
Many boxers, pundits and both the Sky Sports and Showtime broadcast teams criticised the referee during and after the fight.
After the fight, Joshua explained his game plan for the fight, "My strategy in there was kind of stick behind the jab.
It's one of the most important weapons. The old saying is the right hand could take you around the block, but a good jab will take you around the world.
And that secured another championship belt. So I stuck behind the jab and I made sure anything that was coming back, I was switched on, I was focused and 12 rounds, baby!
I thought it was hard, right? A lot to work on. It was a good experience being here. Thank you all for the opportunity to fight in this big stadium.
We're gonna go back, train hard, plan again and come back stronger. No regrets, you know, take it on the chin. Come back stronger, more punches.
But I would love to have another go. Just back to the drawing board. The fight was shown live in the US on Showtime in the afternoon.
