Anthony Joshua sends message to Tyson Fury after knocking out Kubrat Pulev

Anthony Joshua is ready to fight Tyson Fury after his ninth-round stoppage of Kubrat Pulev.

Joshua dropped his challenger three times en-route to a stunning KO win in his first fight in over a year.

And he then said he is prepared to meet his fellow British world champion in the ring next year in a potential undisputed clash.

“Less talk, more action,” he said. “I hope everyone was satisfied tonight.

“For me, I stuck to what I know best, boxing, you ask the crowd what they want to see!

“I’m up for anyone, look at my resume. Whoever has got the belt, I want the belt. If that is Tyson Fury, let it be!”


Joshua dropped Pulev in the third round but he recovered to hear the bell and then began to fight back.

But just as he was finding a way into the fight, Joshua dropped him with an uppercut in the ninth session.

Once again Pulev beat the count but a right hand flattened him with two seconds of the round remaining.

His promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed he will look to secure a fight with Fury.

“Since he came into the office he’s wanted to be undisputed heavyweight champion of the world,” he said.

“We know what we have to do, starting from tomorrow; we make the Tyson Fury fight; it’s the only fight to be made in boxing.

“It’s the biggest fight in British boxing history. I promise you, he wants it. He’s the best heavyweight in the world.”
