The Heavyweight king returns to the scene of his historical triumph over legendary Champion Wladimir Klitschko in April 2017, where he produced the performance of a lifetime to claim the WBA crown in an unforgettable battle in front of a post war record crowd on 90,000 at England’s national stadium.

The 28-year-old sensation went on to sell out the Principality Stadium in Cardiff twice, defending his belts against Carlos Takam in October before unifying the division by taking Joseph Parker’s WBO belt in March and is now thrilled to be back under the iconic Wembley arch for what promises to be another blockbuster night.

Former WBA ruler Povetkin earned his shot at Joshua when he spectacularly defended his WBA Inter-Continental and WBO International titles with a brutal fifth round KO of Liverpool’s David Price last time out on the Joshua v Parker undercard.
 
Now the Russian powerhouse is aiming to overthrow the biggest name in boxing when he fights in England for the first time in his career.

[QUOTE=kafkod;19094184]Povetkin's promoter is an oil magnate, possibly the richest man in boxing, so there's no doubt he could have afforded to bid that high. But you don't get to be as rich as Ryabinsky by throwing your money away blindly.…
