Anthony Joshua will return to the ring on October 28th to face Kubrat Pulev at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium.

Joshua will be putting his WBA and IBF belts against the Bulgarian who is the mandatory for the IBF title.

Pulev has only lost one of his twenty-five fights and that was against Wladimir Klitschko who Joshua beat back in April. Visit bookies.com for the best odds ahead of the fight.

Speaking about the fight, Joshua is hoping for another memorable night for British boxing.

October 28 can’t come soon enough, I have been eager to get back in the ring since Wembley and now we are confirmed and ready,

I’ll be locked away focusing on fight number 20 for the next eight weeks. I am excited to experience the atmosphere in a sold out Principality Stadium and aim to give the fans a spectacular night.

Pulev, on the other hand, believes his boxing style is perfect for beating Joshua.

We will not hug and hold, we will not run; we will stand and fight. His style fits mine perfectly and in boxing, styles make fights.

My preparation will be very intense, and I will be perfectly ready when I enter the ring so that he will have no chance to beat me.

Ticket details will be announced later this week.
