The loss was just the second of 39-year-old Povetkin's 36-fight career - his only other defeat was to Wladimir Klitschko, who Joshua scored a TKO win over last year to claim three of his four world titles.

He added: 'I don't know this is boxing it's a amusing thing - he may need surgery after what happened to his nose.

He finally ended the fight in the seventh round following the punch that stopped the 39-year-old and was announced victor after the opponent failed to get up.

Joshua's youth and his activity, the fighters he has fought, I thought he would come through.

The venue and date of Joshua's next fight have always been determined - Wembley Stadium on April 13 - but the opponent is still unclear.

However, early on it was the smaller challenger who appeared the more inspired by the occasion and he caught the Briton late in the first round with an uppercut on the nose.

Another right-left combination downed Povetkin, who somehow made the count, only to stagger into a left hook which saw him slump into the ropes, leaving referee Steve Gray with no option but to intervene.

Joshua, 28, had a significant height and reach advantage of several inches over Povetkin.

'Hopefully, it's me next, I'm here and ready to fight'.

It's all in good fun, of course (they quite clearly are sickeningly loved up), but it's just bloody amusing and I love it. When one other Twitter person asserted that even Teigen says "tee-gen", the Lip Sync Combat cohost replied, "I do know".

But Joshua, who had a 4-inch height advantage and weighed in almost two stones heavier (246 pounds to Povetkin's 222), made better use of his jab later in the third round.

Joshua, who said Thursday that "my well is deep, my heart can definitely go through hell and back", was certainly being tested in the opening exchanges, although he did start to respond with some single-punch jabs.

"May the champion bring himself here and have a good old fashioned dust-up. If Dillian (Whyte) wants to fight here he is also more than welcome".

Povetkin again rocked Joshua with a short left hook in the third round, after he had landed a big overhand right, and the champion looked nervous.
