Written by on December 14, 2020

ANTHONY JOSHUA SET UP A POTENTIAL ALL-BRITISH WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT UNIFICATION BOUT AGAINST TYSON FURY WITH A DOMINANT NINTH-ROUND KNOCKOUT OF BULGARIA’S KUBRAT PULEV AT LONDON’S WEMBLEY ARENA ON SATURDAY.

IN FRONT OF 1,000 FANS WITH ATTENDANCE LIMITED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS RESTRICTIONS, JOSHUA ENSURED THERE WAS NO REPEAT OF A SHOCK DEFEAT IN HIS FIRST CLASH WITH ANDY RUIZ JR IN 2019 AS THE 39-YEAR-OLD PULEV WAS SWOTTED ASIDE.

PULEV HAD LOST JUST ONCE PREVIOUSLY IN HIS CAREER TO WLADIMIR KLITSCHKO IN 2014, BUT WAS OUTCLASSED BY JOSHUA, WHO COULD HAVE HAD VICTORY WRAPPED UP WITHIN THREE ROUNDS.

PULEV WAS TWICE GIVEN A COUNT BY THE REFEREE IN ROUND THREE AFTER HE WAS LEFT FLAILING ON THE ROPES BY AN EXPLOSIVE BURST OF PUNCHES FROM JOSHUA.
