Two-time European champion, Pulev has lost just once to Wladimir Klitschko in his 29 professional fights and he’s now the mandatory IBF challenger.

With AJ being out of the ring for a year, he’s keen to get back to it and progress his career…has he got what it takes?

Road to Undisputed

AJ’s sights are on an undisputed title fight against new WBC champion, Tyson Fury. But first, he must dispose of his mandatory challenger, Pulev. If AJ and Fury can take care of business this time, the Undisputed heavyweight title fight the world has waited for could be finally on the cards!

Don’t miss Joshua v Pulev 12.12.20. Stay locked in to @jdsports for all the latest action on all things boxing.
