Britain’s WBA, WBO and IBF world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua will defend his titles against Russia’s dangerous Alexander Povetkin, 39, at the iconic Wembley Stadium this Saturday, in one of UK’s biggest events this year. There is a lot on the line in this fight for Joshua, who looks to go on to bigger and better opportunities; will the unknown Russian cause an upset to Joshua’s plans?

This bout initially is initially expected to be able to draw a crowd of around 80,000, and this will be Joshua’s fourth consecutive stadium fight. That shows the magnitude he is at and how he is able to consistently draw high audiences as he looks to take on another victim in an all-out action packed fight at Wembley, London.
