British boxing behemoth Anthony Joshua is set to defend his IBF boxing title in June against Bulgarian challenger Kubrat Pulev.
Despite clamours for Joshua to fight the ‘Gypsy King’, Tyson Fury, after his impressive knockout win against Deontay Wilder, Joshua is defending his title against another fighter.
That’s because a 2nd rematch between Wilder and Fury has been signed and would come off in July.
Before then, Joshua would fight Pulev, a 38-year-old pugilist who is the IBF’s number one challenger, on June 20th.
If Joshua wins, there is no question the next fight on the card would be Joshua vs the winner of Fury-Wilder 3 in what would be the most blockbuster heavyweight fight since Mike Tyson vs Lennox Lewis.
