But he has been called up to travel to Russia to go toe-to-toe with Povetkin, ahead of his September 22 bid to snatch the WBA, WBO and IBF belts away from Joshua.

Dubois, who will turn 21 at the start of September and be free to challenge for major titles, is slated to continue his learning curve against dangerous American veteran Kevin Johnson on October 6.

And he will have perfect preparation for facing the heavyweight gatekeeper who has also been beaten by AJ, Dereck Chisora and Tyson Fury.

Joshua has been sparring hot prospects Martin Bakole and Agit Kabaye for his next Wembley date with destiny.

“I’ve sparred him and got him with some big shots.

"Anyone that gets in the ring with me will tell you I punch really hard.

“But sparring is just practice, you prepare for a hard fight so you want hard practice.

“Anthony is a lot further ahead of me in his professional career so I am just focused on what I am doing and learning from my mistakes and trying to get where I am meant to be.”
