"WBC Heavyweight World Champion Deontay Wilder will defend his title against lineal champion Tyson Fury in a blockbuster matchup of undefeated heavyweights on Saturday, December 1 live on Pay-Per-View", Haymon boxing said. He has won 24 of his fights by knockouts while 10 have ended in his favour by unanimous decisions.

Victory over Joseph Parker in Cardiff in March this year saw the unbeaten Briton crowned WBO champion, adding to the WBA and IBF straps he already had in his possession.

"The one who's toughest will come out victorious".

The London 2012 Olympics gold medallist defeated Klitschko at Wembley on April 29, 2017 to win the WBA world heavyweight title.

Standing at 6-foot-6 with an 82-inch reach, the 28-year-old Joshua has a noticeable size advantage over the 6-foot-2 Povetkin.

American Deontay Wilder holds the WBC belt but the fans will have to wait for that long-desired match-up.

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

Also after engaging in an icy final stare-down, Alexander Povetkin is feeling "no pressure" ahead of today's heavyweight clash with Anthony Joshua. "Because one punch can change the course of a fight, you are in there for 12 rounds".
