Anthony Joshua is back. Refreshed and reset, he’s finally set to defend his four heavyweight belts against Kubrat Pulev in December.
The boxing world was left shell-shocked as Joshua staggered and stumbled to defeat against underdog Andy Ruiz Jr in June 2019, but AJ fought back in Saudi Arabia to reclaim his WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight titles last December.
Joshua hasn’t stepped foot inside a ring for a professional bout in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions, but he’s about to break that barren spell with a title defence against stern opposition in the shape of Pulev.
The 31-year-old knows he must fight to reclaim his stardom after being somewhat usurped by Tyson Fury as the British people’s champion.
Joshua and Fury are eyeing each other up for a mouth-watering showdown in 2021, but for now, all eyes are fixed on December with both men in action against different opponents to keep themselves ticking along.
