Amid all the rumors surrounding Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury, it is now clear that Joshua will first defend his titles against Kubrat Pulev. Joshua and Pulev have been lined up against each other for a long time. If not for the COVID-19 tussles, they would have probably fought by now. However, the heavyweight thriller is once again on the track.
While they are set to face each other in December this year, Eddie Hearn has prompted a potential date for the event. That said, neither the date nor the venue is officially announced. But based on Hearn’s words, it is safe to believe that the title fight is happening this year. And it will most likely take place in the UK.
Unified champion Anthony Joshua will put his WBA, WBO, IBF, and IBO heavyweight titles on the line against Kubrat Pulev. Recently, Eddie Hearn sent fight fans into a frenzy when he revealed the date for Joshua vs Pulev showdown. That said, boxing fans can witness some high-voltage heavyweight action in the coming days. On November 28, Hearn will stage the rematch between Dillian Whyte and Alexander Povetkin for the WBC interim title.
Also, Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3 might happen in December. All these fights can change the landscape of the heavyweight division. Thus, fight fans will be in for a show in the concluding months of 2020.
