Anthony Joshua Vs Kubrat Pulev Heading Towards The Millennium Stadium - Hearn
8/8/2017

Anthony Joshua's Promoter Eddie Hearn told reporters that the World Title fight between Anthony Joshua and Kubrat Pulev is heading towards Principality Stadium in Cardiff.

Kubrat Pulev was now scheduled to face Anthony Joshua after the retirement of Wladimir Klitschko last week instead of accepting a rematch with the IBF and WBO Wold Champion Anthony Joshua. 

"Yeah we know it's going to be Kubrat Pulev," Hearn told Sky Sports News . "Obviously there was an order made some time ago now by the IBF which we had to be a part of and sign.

"If it wasn't Klitschko, then it was going to be Kubrat Pulev, who is the No 1 challenger with the IBF. He's been AJ's mandatory for probably 12 months now, so he's due his shot.

"It's just a case of whether that fight's going to be at the Millennium Stadium, or that fight's going to be at Las Vegas.

"Probably at the end of next week we will make that decision. Probably right now, October 28th at the Millennium Stadium is a frontrunner. But again, plenty to do, juggling the belts."


The Cuban Luis Ortiz has also emerged a next opponent for Joshua, set as a WBA Mandatory challenger while Deontay Wilder could also fall in line after for a unification fight.

"Luis Ortiz, the WBA have just called a mandatory on AJ for him," said Hearn. "We're going to have to fight Luis Ortiz after Kubrat Pulev. Deontay Wilder wants to fight, so we're mapping things out nicely.

"In an ideal world right now, we're looking at Pulev, Ortiz, and then Deontay Wilder next summer. Things are looking good, although the Klitschko retirement was a little bit disappointing for fight fans, we know that AJ has got a long career ahead of him.

"We've got to map it out effectively. He's just having his last little bit of time in the sun right now and then camp starts next week."
