Information

Joshua returns to the ring following his epic battle with Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium in April where the Brit added the WBA strap to his IBF belt in an enthralling contest with the future hall-of-fame legend, climbing off the canvas to record an 19th straight KO win in front of a record-breaking crowd in London.

The unbeaten Olympic gold medal hero will now tackle his IBF mandatory Pulev, the Bulgarian rated number one in the IBF facing his second World title challenge having faced Klitschko for the IBF title in November 2014. ‘The Cobra’ became a two-time European champion after the fight with a win over Dereck Chisora, and the 36 year old picked up and defended the WBA Inter-Continental title with wins over two former World title foes of ‘Dr Steelhammer’ in Samuel Peter and Kevin Johnson.

“October 28 can't come soon enough, I have been eager to get back in the ring since Wembley and now we are confirmed and ready,” said Joshua. “I'll be locked away focusing on fight number 20 for the next eight weeks. I am excited to experience the atmosphere in a sold out Principality Stadium and aim to give the fans a spectacular night.”

In a fight expected to attract a huge global audience, Kubrat Pulev will take on Anthony Joshua at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on October 28th.

With an expected sell-out crowd of 75,000, the authorities are advising all ticket holders to plan ahead for the event, plan their travel in advance and arrive in Wales and Cardiff in ample time.
