Speaking after the fight, Joshua said:  “Povetkin is a very tough challenger, he proved that tonight with good left hooks and counter punches.

I came in here to have fun, and give it my best, I knew he was strong to the head but weak to the body. I was just mixing it up.

It could have been seven, maybe nine, maybe 12 rounds to get him out of there. But the ultimate aim was to be victorious. I got my knockout streak back.”
