After touching down at Heathrow Airport, the Russian expressed his excitement at being involved in such a huge bout.

Povetkin told Sky Sports News: "I'm very happy and I'm very glad that I have this opportunity to fight Anthony Joshua.

"It's the aim of every boxer to fight with the best and I am very happy that we're doing this fight with Anthony."

The only loss of Povetkin's career came against Wladimir Klitschko in 2013, while Joshua has won all 21 of his fights, recording 20 knockouts in succession prior to a points victory over Joseph Parker in March.

[QUOTE=BigZ44;19120326]Kuzmin looked much more bouncy and athletic than I was expecting, thought he was just going to be a big, out of shape come forward slugger. I'm worried for our boy Pricey now, think he might be getting flattened again…

should be a fun watch

It's not so much Pricey's chin that's the worry, it's any point on his friggin head. He's especially susceptible to skiffs just above the ear, I've noticed. I'm sure the St John's ambulance brigade get a call to tell them…
