Pulev To Joshua: I'll Bust You Up in Front of Your Own Fans!

Heavyweight contender Kubrat Pulev is very confident in his ability to unseat IBF, IBO, WBA, WBO heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

Pulev, who is the IBF's mandatory challenger, is set to face Joshua next.

According to Joshua's promoter, Eddie Hearn, the fight is nearly done for a June date at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London. The venue holds over 60,000 fans.

Pulev had hoped for the fight to take place on neutral soil, but he doesn't have any issue with going to hostile territory to face Joshua.

 "Calm down champ, I see that you are very worried to fight away from home and you are absolutely right to be, haha! But rest assured, if necessary I'm ready to come to London and bust you up in front of your own fans! Until then, tell Mr. Hearn not to get ahead of himself, we do not have a deal yet," Pulev said.

Hearn has received offers from numerous place to secure this bout, but it appears to be a lock to land in the UK, as Joshua has not fought in his backyard since 2018.

In 2019 he fought in New York City in June and then in Saudi Arabia in December.

"We've had offers in from the Far East, Middle East, Africa, America, Turkey," Hearn told Sky Sports News.

"He's made it very clear to me, I want to come home. I want to box in London next. I've been to Madison Square Garden, I've been to Saudi Arabia, bring me home. Forget the other offers, bring me home.

"He wants to fight in London in June. We're on the verge of making that happen now. Spurs is the front runner and that's what he's asked me to do. We'll be delivering that for him."

Pulev would be the best win on Wilder`s resume, lol. On Joshua`s resume he will be like...N. 5?

Got more chance of seeing a chupacabra. Pulev hasn't busted a grape since being flattened by wlad.
