Russian boxer, Alexander Povetkin is not looking to fight Dillian Whyte, as he only wants a fight with Joshua.

After Povetkin’s brilliant knockout of David Price on the undercard of Joshua-Parker’s unification fight, Whyte called out the Russian heavyweight.

But the impressive knockout means the Russian is the mandatory challenger for Joshua’s WBA title, with the Brit also possessing the WBO and IBF belts.

“I’m the mandatory challenger for Joshua,” Povetkin told his promotional team, World of Boxing.

“I look forward to the moment when I can compete against the best in the world. Anthony has four belts. I want this fight and I don’t even think about fighting someone else.”
