The IBF, WBA, & WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua (21-0, 20 KOs) is scheduled to fight Alexander Povetkin (34-1, 24 KOs) on September 22nd at Wembley Stadium in London. This will be Joshua’s seventh world title defense and Joshua is the favorite to win again
Even though I am excited to see Joshua fight, this is not the fight that I wanted to see. I think the majority of the boxing world wanted to see the much anticipated fight between Joshua and Deontay Wilder. There were rumblings in the past month that the fight was going happen this year, but negotiations between the camps failed. However, there is hope that we may finally get this Joshua vs Wilder fight in 2019. You gotta give the people what they want! Let’s make this happen fellas.
