Tyson Fury calls out Anthony Joshua following Alexander Povetkin fight

Whyte was watching ringside as Joshua delivered an emphatic stoppage win over Alexander Povetkin to retain his heavyweight world titles on another epic night at Wembley.

Joshua first wobbled Povetkin with a right hand, followed by a left before the telling left hook and right hand sent the challenger crashing to the canvas.

Victory saw Joshua extend his unbeaten professional record to 22 wins from 22 fights, with 21 knockouts in front of a raucous home crowd.

"I've got my strength back, my body has been broken down and put back like never before", he added.

Povetkin, who won Olympic gold in 2004, is the mandatory challenger for the WBA title - but all four of Joshua's divisional belts will also be on the line in London.

For Povetkin, this is likely to be the end at the top level and he gave it his all, wobbling Joshua on a few occasions early.

Joshua takes on Povetkin in heavyweight title bout tomorrow

Back at the stadium where beat the great Wladimir Klitschko in an 11-round thriller past year, Joshua again went to the trenches against a high-class opponent.

Surprisingly for some, the bout was initially closer to Joshua's Wembley victory over Wladimir Klitschko than it was to March title defence against American Joseph Parker.

He finally ended the fight in the seventh round following the punch that stopped the 39-year-old and was announced victor after the opponent failed to get up. When I fought Klitschko, I was much weaker and in worse shape than I am now.

The fight is the first of a two-match deal Joshua has agreed to stage at Wembley, with the second due to take place in April next year. Both boxers shipped punishment, with Povetkin sporting a significant cut to the left eye.

Now boxing fans will wait and see whether Joshua and WBC champion Deontay Wilder can come to terms on a bout for the undisputed heavyweight title.
