Joshua takes on Povetkin in heavyweight title bout tomorrow

Lawrence Lustig  Ryan Hafey

Joshua will defend his WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles against Alexander Povetkin on Saturday night and it will be no easy task for the undefeated Brit.

Joshua, 28, has admitted to feeling under "tons of pressure" as he returns to the scene of arguably his greatest triumph, an 11th-round stoppage of former champion Wladimir Klitschko past year.

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.

"We've been away for a while, we're back now with Alexander Povetkin", Joshua told a news conference on Thursday. I know how to box.

"This fight has a diplomatic connotation", the former British and Commonwealth champion said.

You know, two tall guys jab, one-two, one-two hook and I'm probably going to knock him out like I did the rest of the fighters.

Wilder has held the WBC title since January 2015.

"There's loads of pressure, tons of pressure, it's the reality", said Joshua, who will have a crowd of some 80,000 on his side.

"I am the best in the division". I know you have got a big mouth and I know you want to win, but you don't want it like I do.

In the buildup to Saturday's fight, Joshua has talked about how he trained with cruiserweights to prepare for Povetkin's smaller build.

"Coming back here is a blessing", he declared. "It's time to just put on a performance".

The fight has a reported £26m purse with Joshua expected to take home up to £20m while Povetkin will receive £6m.

"I can't wait. It is going to be an exciting fight, and explosive fight, one for the legacy".
