Kubrat Pulev To Face Anthony Joshua In October


Bulgarian Heavyweight boxer Kubrat Pulev has revealed that he will square up against Anthony Joshua the WBA heavyweight world champion on 28 October.

The Bulgarian boxer is the mandatory challenger for the IBF title which Anthony Joshua currently holds.

“I am preparing really hard for this game even though I don’t have a lot of time,” Pulev wrote on his Facebook page and also confirmed that the fight will be in Cardiff.

“I will be fit to fight when the fight kicks off so he won’t have anything on me”

The Bulgarian added: “Joshua is a good fighter and a very strong rival. But I can match his style perfectly.”

The fight has not been announced by Anthony Joshua’s camp although Eddie Hearn, the promoter, revealed that the fight will be announced on Tuesday.

Only Defeat In Klitschko’s Hands

Klitschko is the only fighter to have defeated Pulev in his over 20 games career but has won the 5 of his last fight and is now the mandatory challenger for the IBF title.

Anthony Joshua’s two belts are expected to be put up for a fight in the next coming months and have maintained a 100 perfect record since he broke into the professional boxing world.

There are no ways yet from Tyson Fury who announced his retirement some months back but is expected to return as always because he has done the same in the past.
