After a slow start in the opening rounds, Anthony Joshua nicknamed “AJ” found his footing in the fourth round. He dished out a dirty blow to his opponent Povetkin upper left eye and set the crowd screaming.
Showing no remorse, Joshua went on to deliver two more devastating blows in the seventh round which left Povetkin on the deck, dizzy, and quite unsure of where he was.
The 28-year-old triumphed through a seventh-round knockout after he sent his Russian opponent crashing to the canvas to stretch his winning streak to a 22 unbeaten win in his professional career.
The fight was held in front of a massive crowd of 70,000 people.
Immediately after he was declared the winner, Anthony Joshua went on to celebrate by wearing his championship belt on his thick muscular arms. See the picture below.
Anthony Oluwafemi Olaseni Joshua holds three of the four major world championships in Boxing. He currently holds the:
- IBF(International Boxing Federation) title since 2016,
- WBA (Super)title since 2017,
- WBO title since March 2018,
- He has also held the IBO title since 2017.
Before today the 39 years old Alexander Povetkin had never tasted defeat in his amazing professional career, but I guess he will take solace in the fact that he lost to the best.
