19 settembre 2018 11:58

Alexander Povetkin is relishing the chance to test himself against "the best" after arriving in England for his heavyweight world title fight with Anthony Joshua.

Povetkin will face undefeated WBA, IBF and WBO champion Joshua at Wembley on Saturday.

After touching down at Heathrow Airport, the Russian expressed his excitement at being involved in such a huge bout.

Povetkin told Sky Sports News: "I'm very happy and I'm very glad that I have this opportunity to fight Anthony Joshua.

"It's the aim of every boxer to fight with the best and I am very happy that we're doing this fight with Anthony."

The only loss of Povetkin's career came against Wladimir Klitschko in 2013, while Joshua has won all 21 of his fights, recording 20 knockouts in succession prior to a points victory over Joseph Parker in March.
