Joshua and Pulev Arrive for Matchroom Fight Week (VIDEO)

Last updated

IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO Heavyweight World Champion Anthony Joshua will be defending against Mandatory Challenger Kubrat Pulev this weekend. The fight takes place at The SSE Arena, Wembley on Saturday December 12th. This follows approval from local authorities in London that there can be up to 1,000 fans in attendance.

Matchroom recently released the first of their Fight Week vlogs showing the two fighters arriving at the ‘bubble’ in London. All fighters and their coaches have been subject to stringent COVID-19 testing and protocols before the big fight on Saturday night.

The current odds for the fight see Anthony Joshua as the heavy favourite. The British Champion goes in at the following odds:

  • bet365 – 1/10
  • SkyBet – 1/12
  • William Hill – 1/8
  • PaddyPower – 1/12

This will be Joshua’s first test since winning back his titles against Andy Ruiz Jr. The massive upset loss against Ruiz Jr last year derailed the planned Wilder vs Joshua megabout, but a strong win here for Joshua ahead of the now confirmed Tyson Fury fights will help grow his stock immensely.

  • Lawrence Okolie v Krzysztof GÅ‚owacki
  • Martin Bakole v Sergei Kuzmin
