Kwese TV has announced that they will broadcast live on Saturday, 22 September Nigerian-born Anthony Joshua’s world heavyweight boxing title fight against Alexander Povetkin.
Joshua will hope to retain his International Boxing Organisation, World Boxing Association, International Boxing Federation and World Boxing Organisation heavy weight titles, while seasoned boxer Povetkin attempts to strip his opponent of the titles, securing heavy weight glory for himself. It is set to be another big night for Nigerian and British boxing one that boxing enthusiasts will not want to miss.
Undefeated Joshua is currently the unified heavyweight world champion, with three of the four major world championships in the sport to his name. He returns to the ring following his victory against Joseph Parker by a unanimous points decision in March of this year.
Former WBA champion Povetkin has 35 bouts under his belt, 34 victories, 24 of which by TKO. Povetkin has only recorded one loss to Joshua’s former opponent Wladimir Klitschko in 2013, since then he has won eight consecutive fights, including a knockout victory over David Price on the Joshua-Parker undercard. He will attempt to steal heavy weight glory from Joshua and continue his new winning streak.
