Anthony Joshua set to defend heavyweight titles against Kubrat Pulev in London

Joshua (23-1, 21 KOs) will defend his WBO, WBA and IBF titles on June 20 in his native London against former title challenger Kubrat Pulev

It was confirmed the fight will take place at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium


38-year-old Pulev (28-1, 14 KOs) was originally scheduled to face Joshua as a mandatory challenger in the fall of 2017 until he withdrew due to injury. The native of Bulgaria has won eight consecutive fights since a 2014 title loss via knockout to Wladimir Klitschko

Joshua, 30, returns to his native England for the first time since 2018 when he stopped Alexander Povetkin. The 2012 Olympic gold medalist looks to bounce back from a rocky 2019 in which he was upset by Andy Ruiz Jr. during his U.S. debut in New York last June before reclaiming the titles by decision in Saudi Arabia six months later
