Deontay Wilder v Tyson Fury: Fight confirmed for 1 December

Where: Exclusively on DAZN, which is available at $9.99 per month following a one-month free trial - making tonight's fight a free viewing for all.

This will be Joshua's first fight since March 31 when he defeated Joseph Parker for the WBO heavyweight title by unanimous decision in his first career fight to go the distance. His only loss came against Vladimir Klitschko in 2013. Povetkin'scareer has been on a bit of an up-and-down in the recent past as failed drug tests in 2016 and 2017 kept him out of scheduled matches against Deontay Wilder and Bermane Stiverne, respectively.

Wilder has held the WBC title since January 2015.

"This is not new to me, this feels like home", he said ahead of a bout that pits two former Olympic boxing champions against each other, Joshua having won gold at London 2012 and Povetkin at Athens 2004. The bodies also agreed that Joshua would be named the super champion should he defeat Povetkin.

Joshua - whose International Boxing Federation, World Boxing Association and World Boxing Organisation titles will be on the line - weighed in on Friday at 17 stone 8 pounds (111.5 kilograms), whilst 39-year-old Povetkin tipped the scales at 15st 12lbs.

Povetkin said after the weigh-in he was not bothered by the development.




"I didn't see anything in his (Joshua's) eyes. I fought for the moment to face the strongest in the world", he said.

"Roll with the punches, what more can I do than give my best".

"When I fought Klitschko, I was much weaker and in worse shape than I am now", he said.

Despite the weight advantage, Joshua insists he is agile enough to bring up his 22nd professional victory.

"Wembley is there - a date and a location - it's just the person who wants to step up and fight me".

"He's going to be quick, going to be fast, so I'll put on my dancing shoes and be fast with my feet", Joshua told Sky Sports.
