LIVE Scorecards tonight: Anthony Joshua v Alexander Povetkin

World Boxing News 22/09/2018

World Boxing News will be scoring live on site tonight as Anthony Joshua battles Alexander Povetkin in London.

Reporting live from the stadium with up to the minute results, WBN will also provide scorecards for the main attractions.

Live from 7pm on Sky Sports and 2pm ET on DAZN, David Price and Sergey Kuzmin square-off in a big-punching heavyweight bout.

Price is in last chance saloon having been badly knocked out by Povetkin last time out and will need to pull off a shock.

Kuzmin blasted out Joe Joyce in just 32 seconds during his amateur run and is so far undefeated as a pro.

Also on the bill, Matty Askin defends his British cruiserweight title against mandatory challenger Lawrence Okolie.

Askin – like Okolie, has a reputation of being heavy-handed and this one is not expected to go the distance.

Finally, in an off-scorecard clash before the main event, Luke Campbell and Yvan Mendy trade blows in a rematch.

Mendy pulled off a surprising triumph the first time the pair met in 2015, and with the added incentive of a WBC title shot, Campbell cannot afford to drop a second loss in his quest to claim a world title.

Campbell won  Gold at London 2012 and hopes to cement a legacy by becoming the third Olympic champion to make the transition into a similar role in the paid ranks.

The other two are James DeGale and headliner Joshua.

Once the smokes clears at Wembley Stadium, it will then be the turn of Joshua and Povetkin.
