Fight between Anthony Joshua and Kubrat Pulev to take place on December 12 in London 



Bulgaria’s IBF mandatory challenger, Kubrat Pulev has confirmed his fight with heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua will take place in London on December 12.


The 39-year-old had been scheduled to meet Joshua on June 20 but the fight was postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

‘No turning back, no procrastination! Kubrat Pulev vs Anthony Joshua! The date is December 12th and the place is London!,’ the Bulgarian, known as ‘The Cobra’, said on his facebook page.

He added on his website that ‘the date and place of the event are now final and not subject to change, and both parties have signed the official contract.’

Joshua, 30, defeated Mexican-American Andy Ruiz Jr in a rematch in Saudi Arabia last December to win back his IBF, WBA, WBO, and IBO titles.

The Briton was initially due to fight Pulev at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium in October 2017 but the Bulgarian withdrew after suffering a shoulder injury in sparring.

After the December fight, Anthony Joshua will prepare for an all-British heavyweight unification fight with WBC champion Tyson Fury after his trilogy bout Deontay Wilder was called off few days ago.
