The unified world heavyweight title fight Anthony Joshua vs Kubrat Pulev has been put back, Matchroom have announced
Anthony Joshua’s defence of his IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO Heavyweight World Titles against Mandatory Challenger Kubrat Pulev scheduled to take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday June 20 has been postponed.
A new date for the event promoted by Matchroom Boxing and 258 Management in association with Top Rank and Epic Sports Entertainment is currently being worked on. We will announce any updates in due course and continue to explore the possibility of hosting this fight at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Joshua is a big favourite going into the clash with his IBF mandatory, but Pulev is an accomplished operator who has already waited for a lengthy period. This further delay, while unavoidable, will no doubt add more fuel to the Bulgarian’s fire.
