Pulev was scheduled to face Joshua in October 2017, but he suffered an injury which forced him to withdraw a few short weeks before the fight. Pulev ws replaced by Carlo Takam, who Joshua stopped in the tenth round.

Top Rank is planning to have Pulev in the ring in the first quarter of 2019, likely on a date in March.
