ANTHONY JOSHUA is not looking past the threat of Alexander Povetkin after insisting “one punch can change the course of history”.

Joshua will put his unbeaten record and WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight titles on the line on September 22 at Wembley Stadium against a mandatory challenger who has only lost once in 35 professional contests.

While the lure of potentially career-defining bouts against the likes of WBC titlist Deontay Wilder and compatriot Tyson Fury have grabbed his attention, Joshua admitted he would be unwise to take his next challenge lightly.
