Anthony Joshua-Alexander Povetkin - CompuBox Punch Stats

By CompuBox

Working behind a steady jab (8 landed/24 thrown per round), Anthony Joshua found his range in round seven and closed the show by landing 11 of 17 power shots. Alexander Povetkin had a 43-37 edge in power landed before the end came. 43 of Povetkin's 47 landed punches were power shots. 29 of Joshua's 90 landed punches were body shots.

Anthony Joshua clinically stopped Alexander Povetkin in seven rounds to defend his IBF, WBA, IBO and WBO heavyweight titles and reaffirm his status as the world’s leading heavyweight.

Since adding his third world title with March’s victory over Joseph Parker, the return of Tyson Fury and frustration over his inability to secure a unification match-up with WBC champion Deontay Wilder has threatened that very reputation.

That an estimated 68,000 were present at Wembley Stadium – significantly fewer than the 90,000-strong crowd that attended last year’s victory over Wladimir Klitschko – demonstrated that, but he professionally overcame an opponent of ambition and class.

The 39-year-old Povetkin, like Joshua an Olympic gold medallist, had previously lost only to Klitschko and over the distance when the great Ukrainian was at his peak. Joshua capitalised on his aggression in a way that Klitschko could not, dropping him once before stopping him on his feet.

Joshua had spoken in the week of feeling “tons of pressure” to perform and the confirmation of the December 1 date for the higher-profile fight between Wilder and Fury will not have helped, but if he felt that pressure in the ring it did not show.

With the physical advantages over an opponent who fought Klitschko on the same evening Joshua made his professional debut, it would have proved a significant upset had the champion secured anything other than his latest victory.

7-0 Joshua in overall punches landed with 4 rds being within 3 punches or less of each other. 5-2 Povetkin in power punches landed. All those power punches landed & closeness with overall punches is why I think a nice…
