Here is everything you need to know about the heavyweight title clash between Anthony Joshua and Kubrat Pulev, live on DAZN.
The first heavyweight title fight since COVID-19 struck the world and shut down boxing earlier this year takes place on Saturday, Dec. 12, as IBF, WBA (super) and WBO champion Anthony Joshua faces top contender Kubrat Pulev at Wembley’s SSE Arena in London in front of 1,000 fans. The event can be seen exclusively on DAZN in the United States and Canada.
Joshua (23-1, 20 KOs) comes back to action for the first time since December 2019, when he won a lopsided decision over Andy Ruiz Jr. to become a two-time unified heavyweight champion. The three-belt titleholder is looking forward to competing in his home country for the first time since his seventh-round TKO win over Alexander Povetkin in September 2018.
“December 12 is the date and once again the heavyweight belts go up in the air and it is my sole focus to make sure that come December 13 they are in their rightful place in the UK,” Joshua said in a press release.
Pulev (28-1, 14 KOs) earned the opportunity due to being ranked the No. 1 contender by the IBF. The 39-year-old gets another opportunity to become a heavyweight champion. He came up short in November 2014, losing via fifth-round knockout to Wladimir Klitschko. Since suffering the only loss of his career, Pulev worked his way back up the ladder to title contention by winning eight consecutive fights.
“For a small country of Bulgaria to stand up for the heavyweight titles is a great accomplishment,” Pulev said. “This fight is for my late father and all Bulgarians around the world! I’m coming to London to seize the heavyweight championship of the world.”
Can Joshua take care of business and move ahead toward an undisputed title fight against WBC titlist Tyson Fury? Or does Pulev spoil those plans and slot himself into the position?
