Champion WBA in holiday Denis Lebedev attended the match Anthony Joshua and Alexander Povetkin, which ended in the 7th round with an early victory of the British.

According to Lebedev, Povetkin had a good fight, but missed the shot.

“You can’t say that was a mistake. All Alexander was doing very well, but in the end his Majesty the Boxing, everything can change in one second. Joshua is a young fighter, he has to score and score, he has great potential. Alex took the initiative, but missed one beat, and Joshua, it should be noted, has good instincts, he was not released. May say that he is younger but I believe that Sasha was in good shape: duck, movement of the body, he gave nothing to do Joshua. Everything was done correctly, but yawned. And this is the heavyweight division, it was over”, – quoted Lebedev TASS.
