Anthony Joshua weighs in nearly two stone heavier than Alexander Povetkin

Joshua and Povetkin will hit the scales in London

Wilder will have held the WBC title for nearly four years when he meets Fury, with both fighters boasting impressive runs without any defeats.

Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder have agreed a date for their much-anticipated meeting, and will contest the WBC heavyweight world title on 1 December in the US.

Fury has previously held the unified WBA, WBO and IBO world titles after beating Wladimir Klitschko in November 2015, but vacated the belts a year later. "It continues with stops in New York City and Los Angeles".

"And I'm expecting the same type of fight because..." It is officially on, ladies and gentlemen.

"As is often the case in a big fight, punters generally side with the underdog and there are many who do believe that while he is not favoured to win, that he definitely is in with a chance".

According to Boxing Scene, Saturday's fight will also satisfy the mandatory WBO title defence since Povetkin was ranked as number one by both WBO and WBA.

"You've got the WBC heavyweight champion of the world versus the lineal champion".

"It's going to be a pleasure: the two best heavyweights competing against each other".

"I just beat, in my opinion, one of the best heavyweights in Luis Ortiz [by 10th-round knockout on March 3], and now I'm going for the next best in the heavyweight division".

"Deontay Wilder, you are going to get it and you are in big trouble", Fury said. Anthony is a very strong fighter but I am just as strong. "It's signed, sealed and delivered", Fury said.

Meanwhile, former Nigerian boxer, Obisia Nwakpa, has advised Joshua to approach today's fight with caution saying: "The two boxers have come a long way in this game, but as a coach and former boxer, what I am looking for is the man who is more technical, and has the power punch". You can't beat me.

"I always look at it this way - if they're strong in the head then you take them out to the body and if they're strong in the body then you take them out to the head".
