ALEXANDER NOT SO GREAT FOR AJ.

Byline: DAVID ANDERSON

PROMOTER Eddie Hearn admits Anthony Joshua's clash with Alexander Povetkin has been a harder sell to fans.

Wembley is unlikely to sell out for the WBA Super, IBF and WBO heavyweight title contest on September 22, although Hearn says the crowd should still be a very healthy 80,000. The Matchroom MD says Russian Povetkin, who is the WBA's mandatory challenger, is not as appealing for fans who hoped to see Joshua (below) fight WBC champ Deontay Wilder said: "Anyone in I've spoken to it's a tough fight, whereas the man on the street goes to me: 'When's the Wilder fight?'."
