British Heavyweight Champion, Anthony Joshua is set to defend his belts against Bulgarian Heavyweight Kubrat Pulev. The fight is scheduled to happen on Dec 12, 2020, in London, England.

Anthony Joshua currently holds 3 of the 4 major belts in the division and is set to defend against Pulev. Boxing Promoter Eddie Hearns has said that he wants Joshua vs Fury for the title unification but has to go through Pulev first.

Kubrat Pulev is no can himself since he only has one loss in his resume and it was against Wladimir Klitschko. Although the fighters he beat are not as big-name as Joshua’s resume, this may be his time to prove that he can be the next heavyweight champion.

Anthony Joshua is expected to be the heavy favorite coming to the fight since he is the champion and the more talented fighter of both. He has fought the top contenders of the heavyweight division.

His only loss came from a short notice fight against Andy Ruiz. Coming to the fight Joshua was prepared for Jarrell Miller but Miller popped for PEDs that made him pull out his fight. Miller was suspended and Andy Ruiz stepped in on the short notice.

The first fight of Joshua vs Ruiz had one of the best rounds in boxing history. In the third round of the fight, Joshua knocked down Ruiz that fans thought was close to the finish with Joshua winning easily.

But what happened was Ruiz countered with a hit that was sent by the gods according to Joshua. Ruiz hit Joshua above the ear that disrupted his balance for the rest of the match. Joshua was not able to recover from the punch and was stopped in Round 7.

Anthony Joshua then exercised his rematch clause. He won the fight easily, he used his physical advantage and fought on the outside. He became a two-time heavyweight champion when he beat Andy Ruiz.

Fans are hoping for Joshua to win the fight against Pulev but no fight is guaranteed especially in the heavyweight division. It only takes one punch.

Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua is possible the biggest fight to make in heavyweight boxing and British boxing. The question is when will it happen and if the promoters are willing to sit down and make a deal for the super fight to happen.

One other contender could be Oleksandr Usyk, whose last win was against Derek Chisora. His cruiserweight run was so impressive that he deserves to fight for the heavyweight title after only 2 fights in the heavyweight division. Usyk was the unified undisputed cruiserweight champion prior to moving up.
