Anthony Joshua to clash against Kubrat Pulev today in a heavyweight title defence


World heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua will defend his IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO titles against Kubrat Pulev today at The O2 in London.

Joshua, 31, last fought in December 2019 when he reclaimed his titles from Andy Ruiz Jr with a unanimous points victory in Saudi Arabia.

Pulev was due to face Joshua in June but it was postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Pulev has been waiting for a chance to face Joshua for almost three years after a shoulder injury forced him out of their planned world title bout in October 2017.
