However the Bulgarian has only had one world title fight over the course of his long career, having challenged Wladimir Klitschko for his belt in 2015. That fight saw him knocked down three times before a suffering a decisive fifth-round KO.
Pulev has nevertheless gone on to notch up a streak of five consecutive wins, the most recent coming against American Kevin Johnson. It’s Joshua’s first fight on home turf in almost two years, and one he can’t afford to lose if he wants to set set up a blockbuster fight against Tyson Fury next year.

How to watch the Joshua vs Kubrat fight if you’re away from your country
If you’re abroad and discover that your usual coverage is geo-blocked, then the only alternative that we know is to use a VPN to dial in to a country that does have one. The software is perfect for this as it allows you to change your IP address and appear to be in a completely different location – and all through a safe, encrypted connection.
That said, DAZN is one of the few streaming services that has successfully been able to vanquish the use of VPNs. We’ve tried all the major providers, and they all struggle. Thankfully, the best VPN in the world is still effective with Sky Sports.
