Two failed doping tests in 2016 cost Povetkin a crack at Wilder, but he looked unsafe when he knocked out Joshua's fellow Briton David Price in March.

"I've got my knockout streak back and I found my right hand again", Joshua said. Both boxers shipped punishment, with Povetkin sporting a significant cut to the left eye. You could argue this is Anthony's toughest test to date.

Povetkin, like Joshua a former Olympic champion with his moment of glory coming in Athens in 2004, served notice of his punching power on the undercard of that bout, with a sickening knockout of Britain's David Price.

Look below to catch all the details you need to watch the fight. If Povetkin wins it will throw up loads of problems in terms of the complexity on how Matchroom progress in America and it could affect the DAZN deal.

"If he loses it throws potential fights with Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder into jeopardy, this fight really could change the world... if Povetkin can win and it's a big if".

Klitschko is the only man to have inflicted a blemish on Povetkin's 35-fight record, with a points win back in 2013.

"Just signed my portion of the contract of the Wilder versus Fury fight". Every week we have a live Cord Cutting Q&A, and weekly Cord Cutting recap shows exclusively on our YouTube Channel! "If anything, his ability has decreased over the last couple of years". "The champion needs to get themselves over here to the United Kingdom and we'll have a good dust-up".

The 6-foot-7, 220-pound Wilder will be making his eighth title defense when he takes on Fury (27-0, 19 KOs), 30, who is seen by many as still the lineal champion because he never lost any of his belts in the ring.

"AJ is one of the strongest in the division, I'm happy to have this opportunity and we will give the fans a good fight". USA fans can watch the fight live and on-demand only on DAZN.
