Anthony Joshua vs Kubrat Pulev postponed

AJ vs Cobra cancelled

Anthony Joshua’s defence of his IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO Heavyweight World Titles against Mandatory Challenger Kubrat Pulev scheduled to take place at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday June 20 has been postponed.

A new date for the event promoted by Matchroom Boxing and 258 Management in association with Top Rank and Epic Sports Entertainment is currently being worked on. 

Any updates will be announced in due course and Matchroom Boxing will continue to explore the possibility of hosting this fight at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, close to AJ's home.

The latest delay means that any super-fight between Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury can be forgotten about this year. Fury has a mandatory WBC title defence to make against former long-reigning champion Deontay Wilder, which promoter Bob Arum predicts will take place in October. That rules out any chance of the current world rulers meeting in 2020 for an undisputed mega-fight. Then, in February 2021, Dillian Whyte is due a shot at the green and gold belt, whether it's Tyson or Wilder that holds it. So, providing both Brits keep their grip on their world titles, the earliest they could possibly meet will be around June next year, which is 14 months from now.
