Also unusual about the announcement - in addition to its coming on a Friday night - was that it came on the eve of unified heavyweight world titleholder Anthony Joshua's title defense against Alexander Povetkin, which will take place Saturday at Wembley Stadium in London.

Earlier, RunningManKillian tweeted: "Imagine if Povetkin decks Joshua and doesn't even bother to see Salisbury Cathedral while he's over here?"

A previously close contest turned in Joshua's favour decisively when he sent the Russian crashing to the canvas with a straight right hand and left hook. Joshua jumped on Povetkin with another combination that forced the referee to jump in and stop the fight.

"I got my knockout streak back".

Joshua wants to fight the WBC champion when he returns to the ring on April 13 at the home of England football and Hearn, who was up and down at ringside while witnessing Joshua's win over his WBA mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin, wants to try and make the fight happen for the second time.

The fight promises to be Joshua's toughest bout since his thrilling stoppage of former champion Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley in April past year.

Joshua said Povetkin was one of the toughest challengers.

As it turns out, the Pats are getting that seventh-round pick regardless. "Watch for them this week". Coleman has 56 career receptions for 718 yards with five TDs. "That's how it works in New England".

"I realised he was strong to the head but weak to the body".

And if it is not Wilder next up, Joshua could find himself facing the 27-0 Tyson Fury after Povetkin.

Joshua quickly ascended to the top of the mountain with 20 straight knockout victories with wins over Dillian Whyte, Charles Martin, Joseph Parker and Klitschko.

"It's alright fighting men who are 39 years old, half your size".

Povetkin was struggling to keep up the rapid pace he showed earlier in the fight, but Joshua was getting stronger and it was his seventh round annihilation of Povetkin that extended his unbeaten record to 22 fights and he will now turn his attentions to a potential monster fight with the victor of Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury in April next year or even a bout against Dillian Whyte.

"Skills and technique apart, we both have a big heart and can dig deep", said Joshua.

Povetkin had a cut open up by his left eye in the fourth round, and by the fifth round Joshua had landed 30 jabs to the 2 jab that Povetkin landed.
