Matchroom Sport announces that Anthony Joshua's next two fights will be staged at Wembley Stadium on September 22 and April 13.

Matchroom Sport has announced that Anthony Joshua's next two fights will be staged at Wembley Stadium.

Joshua - who currently holds the IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO world heavyweight titles - has previously fought at the North London venue on two occasions, including last April when he defeated Wladimir Klitschko.

The Olympic gold medallist had been hoping to face WBC champion Deontay Wilder in his next outing, but it was revealed last month that negotiations had broken down due to the WBA calling for Joshua to face mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin.

That bout will take place on September 22 - with an official announcement expected in the next seven days - while Matchroom has also confirmed that Joshua is scheduled to compete at the national stadium on April 13.

Should Joshua defeat Povetkin, promoter Eddie Hearn will likely look to re-open talks with Wilder's team over a unification showdown next spring, but Wilder has recently suggested that any deal is now off the table.
