Joshua-Pulev, Parker-Price, Whyte-Chisora Triple on 11/26?

By Carlos Boogs

Matchroom Sports promoter Eddie Hearn is looking at the possibility of staging a huge heavyweight tripleheader on November 26th.

The main event would feature Anthony Joshua (17-0, 17KOs), who would make the second defense of his IBF heavyweight championship - with the current frontrunner being battle tested and highly ranked Kubrat Pulev (23-1, 12KOs) of Bulgaria.

Pulev's only defeat came at the hands of Wladimir Klitschko, and he last saw action in May when he won a twelve round split decision over Dereck Chisora.

Speaking of Chisora (25-6, 17KOs), the second fight would have him go up against his domestic rival - Dillian Whyte. (18-1, 14KOs) The two fighters have been trading insults for several weeks and nearly had a physical confrontation at a press conference back in May. Both of them are scheduled for action in the coming weeks.

Chisora is scheduled to return against Drazan Janjanin in Stockholm on September 10. Whyte is scheduled to return on October 7th at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow, Scotland. He was due to face Sam Sexton, who recently withdrew from the contest.

The third bout would have Joseph Parker (20-0, 17KOs) face Olympic bronze medal winner David Price (20-3, 17KOs). Parker is the mandatory challenger to Joshua's title and set to face Alexander Dimitrenko on October 1. Both Parker and Price are interested in facing eachother and Hearn wants to showcase Parker to the UK audience to build next year's fight with Joshua.

"Could be the 26th, which is the date, could be Manchester. I'm looking at a night of heavyweight boxing as well. The Millennium Stadium. I'm talking about Price-Parker, Chisora-Whyte and Joshua-Pulev all bundled into one. It could be a lot of fun. Just an idea I had in my sleep last night. We have big plans and in two weeks time they should be unveiled," Hearn told BoxingScene.com's Declan Taylor.

[QUOTE=Steve plunger;16997769]Of course I understand your comment and pulev is far more polished but he's also a small heavyweight compared with the Giants of today and I doubt very much pulev will be able to keep a charging Joshua away…

[QUOTE=All in;16996258]I think Joshua has the tools to be the future of the division. I was just saying pulev has great stamina which is rare in the heavyweight division and he could be tested late if it gets there. Pulev…

[QUOTE=mannysavage;16993159]Joshua-Pulev is kinda meh, sure Pulev can hang but Pulev is one of those allround good fighters, he doesnt do anything great but has good fundamentals, Stiverne wouldve been a much better test, it would test Joshuas stamina, chin and…

Now thats a UK PPV that should do really good numbers. Easily should give Joshua a new high water mark with PPV numbers. Joshua gets his first world class legit top ten opponent. Parker gets to KO Price in entertaining…
