World heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua will fight on Sky Sports Box Office for at least another three years after signing a new deal with promoter Matchroom.
The new deal will include a minimum of Joshua’s next five fights, starting with his next bout against dangerous challenger Russian Alexander Povetkin at Wembley Stadium on September 22.
The Sky Ambassador currently holds the WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO world heavyweight titles with a perfect record of 21 wins from 21 fights. His last bout saw him defeat New Zealand’s Joseph Parker in front of a sell-out crowd at The Principality Stadium in Cardiff on March 31.
Joshua is one of the sport’s most feared fighters, with 20 of his 21 fights decided inside the distance. Sky Sports has shown all 21 of his bouts including his unforgettable knockout of Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium and his action-packed fight with fellow Londoner Dillian Whyte.
Anthony Joshua has all his world title belts at stake when he faces Alexander Povetkin at Wembley on September 22nd.
Unified world champion Joshua said: “When I decided to become a professional boxer I felt the boxing market was stagnating and in need of new energy.
“Both Matchroom and Sky have backed me and have given me opportunity after opportunity and I will always deliver. They’ve worked very hard to give me a platform to showcase my skills and tell my story, so choosing to renew our deal was always a matter of when, not if.
