Tyson Fury calls out Anthony Joshua following Alexander Povetkin fight

Joshua v Wilder Joshua weighs in 11 kilograms heavier than Povetkin

With Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury set to fight in December, a heavyweight superfight involving the victor and Joshua will hopefully be in place for 2019.

He added: 'I don't know this is boxing it's a amusing thing - he may need surgery after what happened to his nose.

Povetkin climbed groggily to his feet, Joshua hit with a flurry of punches finishing with another right hand that finally end the fight.

If boxing fans could have their way, Joshua's unification fight with Wilder would've already happened late a year ago or at worst in the first half of 2018.

Fighting in his hometown with almost 85,000 noisy compatriots, Joshua got his nose bleeding after being hit by an overhand right in the opening round.

In the fourth, a cut to the Russian's left eye after taking a good right hand seemed to reflect his increasingly ragged approach, as he swung wildly without setting up the shots.

Anthony Joshua stated his eagerness to fight Deontay Wilder at Wembley next April after overcoming a major scare at the London venue to emphatically defeat Alexander Povetkin.

Anthony Joshua delivers the knockout blow on Alexander Povetkin. Wladimir Klitschko [against Joshua in April 2016] was the biggest in British history, but this one would eclipse that.

In a post-fight interview in the ring, Joshua initially suggested his fans should decide his next opponent, before acknowledging there is one man he wants most of all.

"Without that Klitschko fight - I wasn't as prepared as I am now".

And the first round ended with Povetkin, stooping low, rocking Joshua with a right uppercut that drew blood from the champion's nose.

"May the champion bring himself here and have a good old fashioned dust-up".

"Dillian deserves it more than Fury because he's been consistent and Wilder because he's the champion".

Joshua, who said Thursday that "my well is deep, my heart can definitely go through hell and back", was certainly being tested in the opening exchanges, although he did start to respond with some single-punch jabs.

Friday's weigh-in also confirmed a significant size difference, with Joshua tipping the scales at 17 stone 8 pounds (111.5 kilogrammes) compared to Povetkin's 15st 12lbs.
