Anthony Joshua vs Kubrat Pulev
The date is set for Anthony Jousha vs Kubrat Pulev’s heavyweight title bout at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. June 20th will be the first time a professional boxing bout has been held at the iconic new Spurs stadium on the hallowed turf. Anthony Joshua’s IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO belts will all be in the line in what’s set to be one of the biggest sporting events this year.
The journey so far
Anthony Joshua managed to win his belts back in Saudi Arabia after beating Andy Ruiz Jnr in their hotly anticipated rematch. The little Mexican shocked the world after beating AJ at Madison Square Garden on June 1st, 2019. It was Anthony Joshua’s first professional defeat and it sent shockwaves around the globe. AJ took some time away from boxing before coming back and producing a masterclass in boxing to rightfully regain all of his heavyweight titles.
Just like Anthony Joshua, Kubrat Pulev is no stranger to stardom. The 6ft4 orthodox is a cult hero in his native Bulgaria and has only lost once in 29 bouts. Pulev’s only loss came against Wladimir Klitschko. Joshua has managed to beat Dr Steelhammer but Pulev still has some impressive wins on his record, most notably Dereck Chisora and Hughie Fury.
Anthony Joshua vs Kubrat Pulev is going to be a titanic clash as two of the best heavyweights come together for four heavyweight titles.
