Anthony Joshua is defending his world heavyweight title against Kubrat Pulev on Saturday, December 12. The fight takes place in London at Wembley Arena in front of about 1,000 fans. Plenty more viewers will be tuning in live from around the world, but COVID restrictions have kept in person attendance limited.
According to Pulev, Joshua is slipping and he has this match in the bag already. Part of the talk is showmanship, but Pulev has also said that he is not fighting for himself, but rather his country of Bulgaria. No Bulgarian has ever held a world heavyweight title before and he wants to bring one home.
Joshua is battling Pulev for his chance to take on Tyson Fury in a championship match. Whether Pulev is all talk or the 39 still has what he did back around 2012 will be known soon enough.
