Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury: Fight confirmed for 1 December

22, Anthony Joshua will defend his WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO unified heavyweight titles against Alexander Povetkin at Wembley Stadium.

It was Joshua's first bout in nearly six months, since his unanimous decision win over Kiwi Joseph Parker in Cardiff - the night Povetkin also had his last fight, in knocking out Englishman David Price.

For the fight with Pianeta, Fury walked to the ring to the song "Sweet Home Alabama", an homage to Wilder's beloved home state, and after the fight, Wilder, who was ringside, came into the ring as both were interviewed and boasted they would fight each other and that he would win by knockout.

"I had a good fight, I got my knockout streak back and Im ready for 13 April".

Anthony Joshua (21-0) and Alexander Povetkin (34-1) met in the main event of the evening before a very pro Anthony Joshua crowd.

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

Hong Kong's RTHK broadcaster cited experts as saying Mangkhut was expected to be the strongest typhoon to hit the city in decades. On Sunday, Mangkhut moved northwest to China, where it brought heavy rain and strong winds to several southern provinces.

This fight saw Joshua returning to the scene of arguably his greatest triumph, an 11th-round stoppage of former champion Wladimir Klitschko a year ago.

Joshua, born in nearby Watford but based in London, had been taken the distance for the first time as a professional in his last title defence - a unanimous points victory over New Zealand's Joseph Parker in Cardiff in March.

"It's alright fighting men who are 39 years old, half your size".

"I said I'll fight you, but Wilder's got to agree that there's no second mandatory". Saturday's fight offers Povetkin a chance to win back the WBA title that he lost to Klitschko after four title defenses.

As Joshua's nose bled he was gradually becoming accustomed to Povetkin's hooks, but he then took the advantage in the fight from the third round onwards and cut Povetkin's eye in the fourth.

However, his plan to become the undisputed world heavyweight champion may have to wait a little longer as WBC title holder Wilder announced earlier on Saturday a showdown with former world champion Fury on December 1 in the United States.
