Anthony Joshua weighed in nearly two stones heavier than Alexander Povetkin on the eve of their world title showdown at Wembley Stadium.

The 28-year-old was a career-heaviest 18st 2lbs against Carlos Takam in 2017.

Joshua comes into Saturday's contest having won all 21 of his professional bouts, although his last fight, against New Zealand's Joseph Parker in Cardiff in March, saw him go the distance for the first time as a pro before he secured a unanimous points decision.

Povetkin, 39, served notice of his punching power on the undercard of that bout, with a sickening knockout of Britain's David Price.

Joshua, the WBA, WBO and IBF world heavyweight champion, weighed in at 17st 8lbs 5oz (246 pounds). When I fought Klitschko, I thought we would have a good boxing match. "It is officially on ladies and gentleman, this fight is definitely on", said Wilder, who confirmed an official announcement would come next week.

"That's what I say in boxing, there's no league one, league two.You are either the best or you're not".

They allegedly took her to Robicheaux's apartment and sexually assaulted her with intention of raping her, officials said. In 2014, Robicheaux appeared on an episode of Bravo's " Online Dating Rituals of the American Male ".

"I'm a physical, strong guy, who knows how to box". The fight will show everything.

"And I'm expecting the same type of fight because..."

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

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

He appears to have found his comfort zone now but he still came in nearly two stone heavier than Povetkin, who registered 15st 12lbs on the scales on Friday.

"It's Chapter Two to a certain degree but I just feel relaxed and calm. I've got my strength back, my body has been broken down and put back like never before", he added.
