How to watch the Anthony Joshua fight tonight

Joshua and Povetkin will hit the scales in London

Britain's world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua will be over a stone heavier than his veteran Russian opponent Alexander Povetkin when he defends his title at Wembley on Saturday.

Takam had been the favourite against Dereck Chisora in July but lost via a shock stoppage that suggested the punishment he absorbed from Joshua had ensured his decline, and on that same evening Parker unexpectedly lost to Dillian Whyte, ending his options at world level.

The fight between WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury will take place on Saturday, 1 December.

Since that with at the O2 Arena, however, the 30-year-old has been eagerly looking to tee up his next one. According to reports, Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, is a front runner to host Wilder vs. Fury.

"Flying into London from Moscow, there were a bunch of people in Povetkin t-shirts coming to the fight", Kornilov said. There's no waiting six months or one year.

"And I'm expecting the same type of fight because... And we're going to do the same again on Saturday night", he added. I said, send me the contract, they sent the contract, I said yes. I've come to a stage now where I have a deep world and my hearts big. But you've got to give him respect because he's been on top of his game since that time; what he's done to stay there, and he's here now, having been through a lot of issues, trials and tribulations.




While it's hard to make out every word on the screen, this is how Wilder's message appears to read...

"He's not just a big guy that hits, he's got very good boxing ability, with explosive power, and I think that would be a damn harder fight to be honest with you".

"I have no problems in fighting you as well as making money but Eddie [Hearn] is a liar".

"Go out there - he strong to the head, whip him to the body, he strong to the body I'll whip him to the head". They're bad vibes, but he's not running the show over here.

The outspoken British fighter made his comeback earlier this year after a near two-and-a-half year absence, and immediately set his sights on a showdown with Wilder.
