Joshua Vs Povetkin: Pair Line-up Sparring Partners



Anthony Joshua and Alexander Povetkin have started their punishing training camps and two men are set to become sparring partners for each heavyweight.

Joshua, the unified world champion, will defend his WBA ‘super’, IBF and WBO titles against Povetkin in front of 90,000 people at Wembley stadium on September 22.

In the weeks ahead, Joshua and Povetkin will be toughening themselves in arduous sparring sessions, and we tracked down fighters who will be trading punches with the big-hitting duo.

Martin Bakole’s trainer Billy Nelson has confirmed the unbeaten Congolese man will be sharing the ring with AJ, while the Poland-born Izu Ugonoh has been contacted about assisting Povektin’s preparations.

We’re hopeful that Martin gets his visa this week, or at the latest, early part of next week and basically the following day we’ll be in Sheffield to spar Anthony up until the last day of sparring for his forthcoming fight against Povetkin.
