It’s almost time for England’s Anthony Joshua to defend his World Heavyweight Title belts Saturday night in London against Russian challenger Alexander Povetkin. And host T.J. Rives is ready to preview it with some special guests!
Former Light Heavyweight World Champion Antonio Tarver comes on to talk the pressure of fighting in front your home crowd, as Joshua will. Plus, he gives his thoughts on the state of the division. Then, fight fan/analyst Ari Russell is back to give some of his thoughts on this matchup and compare the present day of the Heavyweight division to the 90’s and 2000’s.
Finally, British Boxing writer David Payne is on the show from the U.K. to talk Joshua’s near God-like popularity with English fans and what is his potential to reign as champion for years to come.
It’s all part of another edition of Big Fight Weekend!
