   Over the past nine years Anthony Joshua OBE has pounded his way to the top of the boxing world. Despite not stepping into the ring until after his 18th birthday, he swept through the amateur ranks, breezed his way to both the British and IBF heavyweight titles, and reached the sport's summit less than a decade after throwing his first punch – producing the performance of a lifetime to defeat legendary champion Wladimir Klitschko and claim the WBA world heavyweight title. In front of a post war record crowd of 90,000 at Wembley Stadium, Joshua recovered from being knocked down – for the first time in his then 19-fight career – to deliver the decisive blows in the 11th round; with the force of that thunderous uppercut presumably still ringing in the Ukrainian's ears.
Joshua to fight Povetkin at Wembley
After announcing that his next two fights will be at England's national stadium, unified heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua has confirmed that his first opponent will be WBA mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin on 22 September.
WBA, IBF and WBO champion Joshua beat Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley in April 2017 but has since fought twice at Cardiff's Principality Stadium (defeating Carlos Takam and Joseph Parker).
"Being north London born and raised, it is in my blood. Wembley just added a fourth lion to the den," said Joshua.
"The opportunity to fight in such an iconic stadium is normally a once-in-a-career opportunity, so to be given the chance to fight there again is amazing."
Anthony Joshua fight record
After an amateur career which saw him twice claim the Haringey Box Cup, win the 2010 senior ABA Championships and, of course, take home a gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics, Anthony Joshua was awarded with an MBE for his services to boxing before he'd even thrown a punch as a professional.
Since then, five first-round knockouts; six world title bouts; and a 100 per cent career success rate have followed; and Anthony Joshua's professional fight record is exemplary. From Dillian White to Dominic Breazeale, Eric Molina to Wladimir Klitschko; none have been able to go the full 12 rounds with the Watford man, with only Joseph Parker able to stay the course so far.
Emanuele Leo was floored inside three minutes on Joshua's professional debut; fellow Britons Paul Butlin and Dorian Darch were dispatched in two rounds; before Denis Bakhtov was bettered inside two as Joshua claimed the WBC International heavyweight belt almost a year to the day after his professional debut.
In fact, it took until Joshua's 15th professional fight before an opponent survived more than three rounds in the ring. The opponent that night was Dillian Whyte, with Joshua forced to survive the first major scare of his career as he overcame a stubborn Whyte to hold onto both the British and Commonwealth titles at The O2 in London.
It was back to business as usual in fight 16 with American Charles Martin demolished in two as Joshua won the IBF heavyweight title with ease. Dominic Breazeale offered stiffer resistance in fight 17 (withstanding seven rounds) before Eric Molina was felled in three. Joshua then dispatched Klitschko at Wembley and both Takam and Parker in Cardiff.
For the first time in his career, Joshua was forced to go the distance to defeat Parker in March 2018; claiming victory after 12 well-controlled rounds via a unanimous points decision. The win saw Joshua unify the WBA, IBF and WBO belts (leaving only Deontay Wilder's WBC title left to claim) after judges scored the fight 118-110, 118-110 and 119-109 in Joshua's favour.
