Anthony Joshua To Face Kubrat Pulev At New Tottenham Stadium
Anthony Joshua’s fight at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium against Kubrat Pulev on June 20 will be live on Sky Sports Box Office.
Joshua will put his IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight championships at stake in his homecoming fight in London to stay on course for a massive unification fight with WBC champion Tyson Fury.
Joshua must end the hopes of his mandatory challenger Pulev – the experienced Bulgarian has lost just once in 29 fights, to Wladimir Klitschko in 2013, but has since beaten Derek Chisora and Hughie Fury.
Fighting at Tottenham’s stadium will be Joshua’s first outing on UK soil in nearly two years since he beat Alexander Povetkin at Wembley.
He spent 2019 on the road, losing to Andy Ruiz Jr in New York then beating him in Saudi Arabia, but now returns for another major stadium fight.
“On June 20, I am defending my heavyweight world titles.”
“I’m back in my home city after some time away. A spectacular stadium has been built in north London and I’m honoured to bring the boxing community from all over the world to witness us make history with the stadium’s first heavyweight world title fight.
“The belts go back up in the air and nothing will stop me from being victorious.”
