Anthony Joshua vs Kubrat Pulev confirmed for October 28 at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium
Anthony Joshua has vowed to give his fans a “spectacular night” after his clash with Kubrat Pulev was finally confirmed for October 28 at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium.
The unbeaten Joshua, who is 19-0, said: “October 28 can’t come soon enough.
“I’ve been eager to get back in the ring since Wembley and now we’re confirmed and ready.
I’ll be locked away, focusing on fight No 20 for the next eight weeks. I’m excited to experience the atmosphere in a sold-out Principality Stadium and aim to give the fans a spectacular night.”
The undefeated Pulev, 36, is the IBF’s mandatory challenger and insists he will not be Joshua’s latest fall guy.
“Anthony is a formidable opponent,” said the Bulgarian. “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.”
British-Nigerian boxer and World heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua has revealed that he doesn’t have much time for girlfriends as his training regime doesn’t leave him any spare time, hence he definitely won’t be settling down anytime soon.
In an interview with Evening Standard, Anthony said;
“If people can ride with me for the next 10 to 12 years I would really appreciate it, but if they can’t foresee the future I’d rather they jump off the boat because I can’t stop for no one right now.
“I was speaking to my coach, who worked with Carl Froch who had a 12-year career. One day it does finish and now he has all the time in the world to think about business, family.
“Not everyone likes the decisions I make but I’ve got to make my own decisions. Decisions I make impact others. And my time training means there is not much time for girlfriends either.”
