Anthony Joshua and Alexander Povetkin

On September 22, the WBA, IBF and WBO champion, Joshua will face mandatory challenger, 38-year-old Russian, Povetkin at Wembley.

In a heady piece, Joshua speaks, “It’s not just about Povetkin and Wilder, it ’s about proving my worth as a heavyweight champion. It’ s about me, my legacy and achieving my potential.

“Now it’s more, I know I’m good at this. I’ve built my mindset over the last 10 years. I’ve got 10 years left in boxing and I want to cement my legacy.

“( George ) Foreman , Bernard Hopkins , ( Wladimir ) Klitschko went on until 40. I believe I can do that with the advances in sports science.
“I’ve been 12 rounds , I’ ve been dropped, I’ve put on weight, I’ve lost weight, I’ve learnt boxing specific training..

“I think back to the gold medal . It was a tournament I had to get through. I’m back in the tournament. It’s great . It resonates with people .”

Both Joshua and Povetkin are former Olympic Champions.
At 38, the Russian is 10 years older than Joshua, and fought for the same three titles when suffering his only defeat - by Wladimir Klitschko in 2013.
That was the same night Joshua made his professional debut, stopping Emanuele Leo in the first round.

“Anthony Joshua has proved he’s one of the strongest fighters. I’m very excited for this fight ,” Povetkin said.

“The best motivation for myself is knowing he ’s a world champion .”
