Another Saturday in September, another blockbuster world title bout.
Here’s our brief guide to some of tonight’s biggest fight cards:
Joshua v Povetkin
@ Wembley Stadium – London, England
UK: Sky Sports Box Office, US: DAZN
There seems to be a strange lack of buzz around the boxing world for this one, despite 2 of the top heavyweights in the world battling for the true world championship in the sport’s most iconic division.
He might not be Wilder or Fury, but Alexander Povetkin is a genuine contender to Anthony Joshua’s throne, and this is a fight not to be slept on in our opinion. [Editor’s Note: I’m sticking my neck out here and picking Povetkin for the upset]
The undercard looks very promising as well, with exciting heavyweight banger David Price a late addition to the bill against dangerous Russian Sergey Kuzmin.
Elsewhere, unbeaten talent Lawrence Okolie fights for Matty Askin’s British Cruiserweight belt on the Wembley pay-per-view show.
There’s also a tasty rematch between Luke Campbell and Yvan Mendy on the card.

Szeremeta v Diaz
@ Hala Sportowa im. Olimpijczykow – Lomza, Poland
17-0 middleweight Kamil Szeremeta defends his European strap against Ruben Diaz. The 38 year old Spaniard hasn’t lost since 2002 while the Polish home favourite will be looking to hold onto the belt he won in Italy earlier this year.
