Joshua puts his IBF, WBA and WBO gold on the line against his mandatory challenger, the dangerous Povetkin who arrives in London armed with a fearsome mentality and a brutal left hook.
Huge opportunities to unify the division may await for Joshua who has a return to Wembley booked for April but he will not be able to overlook his 39-year-old visitor, who has only lost one fight in 35 to a prime Wladimir Klitschko.
