Anthony Joshua Defeats Alexander Povetkin At Wembley Stadium

Well, nobody expected how close this fight would be. Anthony Joshua has successfully defended his WBA (super), IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight belts against Alexander Povetkin this evening.

It means that the 28-year-old has recorded an impressive 22 victories from 21 fights, including 20 finishes, but who will his next fight be against?

Will Tyson Fury finally get his shot at the champ? I mean, Joshua is definitely all set for a huge match-up in the coming months.

A mega-unification between Joshua and WBC holder Deontay Wilder was heavily muted but the pair of unbeaten world champions failed to strike a deal, with the 'Gypsy King' getting his opportunity to defeat the American on December 1st.

In terms of sheer power, Joshua has to be one of the hardest hitters in the heavyweight division. If you're a skeptic, then check out some of these hits in training earlier.

Who will face Joshua next, though? The question remains, but promoter Eddie Hearn has hinted that a potential bout with Dillian Whyte could happen in November 2019, according to The Guardian.

"Whyte is a much bigger fight than Povetkin in Britain," he said.

"On the world scene Povetkin is well known and credible, but Whyte, with the history of the first fight, the build-up, it's a huge fight."

It would certainly be a fascinating bout if the pair went head to head.
