A win that will now pave the way for further speculation regarding a potential unification bout for the heavyweight belts, news that Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury are set to fight on December 1 will be of intense interest to Joshua and his promoter Eddie Hearn alike.

"I'm very calm, I feel no pressure and am very happy about this fight taking place so soon". He provided that, he was good with left hook.

"We will go away now and try and make a fight with Wilder", Hearn said.

Povetkin got tagged with several good jabs by Joshua in the sixth round. "Let's see if Wilder-Fury actually happens". Povetkin'scareer has been on a bit of an up-and-down in the recent past as failed drug tests in 2016 and 2017 kept him out of scheduled matches against Deontay Wilder and Bermane Stiverne, respectively.

Povetkin started the stronger of the two, landing some crucial blows and causing Joshua to bleed heavily from the nose with a shot that left the Watford-native wobbling.

Povetkin was sharp early in the second before Joshua tried to establish some authority behind single jabs. Bigger names may loom large on the horizon, but Joshua will know better than to overlook his challenger.

Joshua, 28, had a significant height and reach advantage of several inches over Povetkin.

Joshua born by Nigerian parents, beat the Russian at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday night, to hand the Russian, his first knockout defeat in his professional boxing career.

Povetkin's career has been marred by failed drug tests, but after finishing up a drug suspension a year ago, Povetkin returned to form, knocking out David Price in his last fight to become the mandatory challenger to Joshua's title.

But Povetkin could do nothing to repel the punches that rained down on him in the deciding seventh round.

Povetkin looked hurt but was able to get back to his feet, but was still badly hurt.

"The one who's toughest will come out victorious".
