Anthony Joshua, a British-Nigerian boxer, has set up a potential all-British world heavyweight unification bout against Tyson Fury IN 2021 with a dominant ninth round knockout of Bulgaria’s Kubrat Pulev at London’s Wembley Arena on Saturday.The fight is Joshua’s first since reclaiming his belts from Andy Ruiz in December 2019 in Saudi Arabia.
Pulev had been unbeaten in his last eight fights since losing via knockout to Wladimir Klitschko in 2014. The 39-year-old won 28 of his previous 29 with 14 by way of knockout
Celebrating his victory, Joshua tweeted: “We don’t have to prove anything to no one but ourselves.”
This week, Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn said he was “as close to 100 per cent” as he could be that the much-anticipated bout would happen next year.
