Joshua vs Povetkin
JOSHUA vs POVETKIN
ROLL WITH THE PUNCHES
Anthony Joshua has the final say...
"There's loads of pressure, tons of pressure, its the reality. We both know what we are in for, its the same with every fight.
"Roll with the punches, what more can I do than give my best.
"I'll go out there and find a way to win.
"I know I have a lot of fire in my belly, that's just as important as skills."
The champion's trainer has his say
"This is a fighter from a different level, with respect to Parker and Takam. Povetkin comes from the top level."
The Russian, via a translator, is ready for the titanic showdown.
"I think I am in very good shape, I've had a good camp.
"AJ is one of the strongest in the division, I'm happy to have this opportunity and we will give the fans a good fight.
"The fight will show everything, Anthony is a very strong fighter but I am just as strong.
"When I fought Klitschko, I was much weaker and in worse shape than I am now.
"I never try to say anything ahead of time, you'll see everything on fight night."
The world heavyweight champion is back at Wembley.
"Skills and technique apart, we both have a big heart and can dig deep. We both showed that against Klitschko.
"The one who's toughest will come out victorious.
"He's one of the lightest heavyweights but that means he has speed. I spar cruiserweights like Lawrence Okolie who is fast and sharp.
"His strengths? I work alongside people who have the same strengths."
Eddie Hearn again gets us underway...
"It's an honour to be back at Wembley, the national stadium.
"80,000 fans will be there to see if Anthony Joshua can continue on the road to being undisputed champion."
JOSHUA OR FROCH?
We put Rob McCracken to the test...
Eddie Hearn says that Joshua and his team are well aware the size of Saturday's task...
"I think Povetkin looked very well and fit, he did more on the pads than Joshua. He's fast in and out underneath, throwing those hooks.
"Joshua was business-like, he done the bare minimum and then spent time with the fans.
"AJ and McCracken know this is an extreme test, they know what is on the line.
"The Russians fancy it and expect hairy moments, but expect a ruthless Anthony Joshua looking for the knockout."
Surrounded by bodyguards who would give Klitschko's mob a run for their money, the challenger to the world heavyweight title is here.
CAMPBELL v MENDY
Repeat or revenge?
KUZMIN VS PRICE
A monster heavyweight collision.
ASKIN v OKOLIE
British cruiserweight title fight.
Can 'Cool Hand' get revenge?
"This is a fight I've wanted for the last three years. I've had a great training camp and prepared the right way.
"I'm excited and ready, both physically and mentally.
"This is must-win and I believe I will get the win. Shane McGuigan has added to my style.
"We know what Mendy brings to the table, he's tough, strong and comes forward. It'll be a great fight."
He shockingly ended Luke Campbell's unbeaten start to pro life, and wants to beat him again...
"We will confirm the win that we had, three years ago."
The British cruiserweight champion makes his second defence of the Lonsdale Belt.
"This is to prove to myself the level I am at. The fight is risky but it has the rewards at the end of it.
"Without disrespecting Okolie's achievements, his opponents have stood there and taken his shots, it's a stupid tactic. There's so much more to boxing.
"I win inside the distance."
Challenger to Matty Askin's British cruiserweight title is predicting a stoppage win.
"I have a lot of self-belief because of my training and my lifestyle.
"Week-in week-out I spar top people. I did a lot in a short period as an amateur and I'm looking to do the same as a pro.
"I knew what type of fight this would be, and I still wanted it.
"People need to differentiate popularity from ability. Askin has ability. But skill for skill, I am on another level.
"My attributes are overlooked and my ability is underplayed.
"Because of the power I have, people hold onto the negatives.
"In a 12-round fight with my pacing, I keep my power with intensity."
Can the Liverpool heavyweight revive his boxing career this weekend?
"My stock and confidence went up with the Povetkin fight.
"I'm ready to meet Kuzmin head on. It's excitement guaranteed every time I fight. He will never have been hit by someone like me. Don't blink, people.
"The upside of winning this fight, it's potentially life-changing. I'll do whatever it takes to win."
Russian heavyweight who has an amateur KO of Joe Joyce on his record.
"I'm here to prove myself, and prove what I can do.
"Price was a prizewinner at the 2008 Olympics but I will demonstrate what I achieved through my training."

"We have six Olympians on stage Saturday night including three gold medalists. It's going to be a great night.
"Wembley will spur these fighters on for more huge nights in their careers."
