British IBF, WBO, WBA and IBO champion in heavyweight Anthony Joshua (23-1, 21 KOs) has announced his next fight. Thus, he will meet with Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev (28-1, 14 KOs). The fight will take place on the 30th of May at the Vodafone Arena – home of Turkish football club Besiktas in Istanbul. Joshua vs Pulev odds predict the winner of this battle.
Pulev is Joshua’s mandatory challenger for the IBF heavyweight title. Meanwhile, to secure his WBO champion’s title British boxer has to meet with Alexander Usik (17-0, 13 KOs) from Ukraine. However, as the IBF had claimed the right to organize the fight earlier, Pulev is now the main challenger for Joshua. Online gambling sites in Turkey are already offering their bets on the winner of this meeting.
British and Bolgarian will fight for the IBF title
Anthony Joshua has agreed to a deal to fight Kubrat Pulev in his next bout. The heavyweight’s co-promoter John Wirt has lately confirmed this information. The pair had been due to clash at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium back in October 2017. However, then the Bulgarian had to pull out with injury and was replaced by Carlos Takam (33-2-1, 25 KOs). Anyway, we hope that this time the fight will happen.
British boxer is a very strong competitor for Pulev. Joshua is a two-time unified heavyweight champion. Moreover, he has held the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO titles since December of 2019. Joshua is ranked as the world’s best active heavyweight by BoxRec and third by The Ring magazine. Thus, the 1xBET gambling site is offering 1.11 odds for him to secure his champion’s title. Bookmakers see the British boxer as a favorite in the fight with Pulev.
