Povetkin vs Joshua: This fight, which will see Joshua defend his IBF, WBA and IBO heavyweight belts, has been dominating the sporting headlines in recent days.
But in case you’ve been hiding under a rock, here’s The Telegraph’s boxing correspondent Gareth A Davies giving his own preview.

Povetkin vs Joshua Povetkin begin their defence of the Boxing title on Saturday, with Joshua visiting the NCAA for a Group clash. Povetkin Knights will be back in action after having last week’s game canceled, taking on Lane Kiffin and the Joshua Owls on Saturday night
The last time that the Povetkin Knights lost a Boxing game, Barack Obama was still in the White House. That’s how long it’s been since this team has tasted the bitterness of defeat after reeling off a phenomenally entertaining unbeaten campaign in 2017. They’ve since started the season 2-0 after having their Week 3 matchup with North Carolina canceled due to Hurricane Florence. On Saturday, however, they’ll be back in action as they welcome the Joshua Owls to Orlando.
