JD’s Anthony Joshua has confirmed his next title defence will be against Bulgaria’s Kubrat Pulev at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on 20th June 2020.
The WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO champion returns to home soil for his first fight since stopping Alexander Povetkin in the seventh round at Wembley, back in September 2018.
A two-time European champion, Pulev (38) has lost just once to Wladimir Klitschko in his 29 professional fights, and is now the mandatory IBF challenger.
The Bulgarian, also known as “the Cobra,” was scheduled to challenge Joshua at Cardiff’s Prinicipality Stadium in 2017, before being forced to withdraw through injury.
WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is set to take on Deontay Wilder in a third fight in the US around the same time.
“It is due to take place in the US (Fury vs Wilder III) … by the end of June, early July, no later than that,” Frank Warren recently stated after confirming that the Bronze Bomber had invoked a rematch clause.
If AJ and Fury can take care of business, the Undisputed heavyweight title fight the world has waited for could be finally on the cards!
