Joshua v Povetkin: Join 888Sport for 25/1 the Fight to go the Distance
Anthony Joshua steps back into the ring at Wembley Stadium on Saturday night with his WBA championship belt on the line. In the opposite corner is Russian challenger Alexander Povetkin who, despite being the outsider in this contest, has an impressive pro record and will be hopeful of causing an upset.
While AJ is a red hot favourite, some pundits feel that he may be taken the distance by Povetkin and if that does happen, there is potential for a big payout for new customers to 888Sport.
