JUST IN: Anthony Joshua Knocks Out Alexander Povetkin In 7th Round

Sports News 23rd September, 2018: World Heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua has knocked out Alexander Povetkin in the seventh round of their world title fight.

Povetkin didn’t have it his own way but Joshua was just too powerful. Alexander Povetkin was stopped for the first time in his career.

Joshua retained his WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO titles after round seven stoppage knockout.

Referee Steve Gray had dived in, Joshua was in the middle of another onslaught and Povetkin ended the fight on the canvas, but it was already over.

The IBF, WBO and WBA champion, criticised in some quarters for failing to finalise a deal with the division’s other high-profile names, responded emphatically with a seventh-round stoppage of the Russian, who had never been beaten inside the distance.

After an early chess match in which Joshua suffered a bloodied nose before cutting his rival, the Briton grew in confidence and a savage right hand followed by a left hook began an onslaught which would prove telling.
