Anthony Joshua to defend world titles against Kubrat Pulev in front of fans

Anthony Joshua will defend his three world titles against Kubrat Pulev in front of 1,000 fans at Wembley Arena next weekend.

The heavyweight champion will return to the ring for the first time since his revenge mission against Andy Ruir Jr last December.

And he will be the first British world champion to fight in front of a crowd since the coronavirus pandemic struck in March.

Promoter Eddie Hearn said: “I can’t tell you how happy I am to see fans returning to our live boxing events.

“Whilst the team have done an incredible job over the last 10 months we live and breathe through the energy and atmosphere that a live crowd generates.

“It’s so fitting that they can return for an AJ fight, when through the last few years he has broken all kinds of attendance records in the U.K. and beyond. This is such a positive move for boxing and all sport. Welcome back!”
