Two-time unified heavyweight champion, Anthony Joshua brutally knocked Kubrat Pulev out in the ninth round of their world heavyweight championship fight at The SSE Arena, Wembley, on Saturday night.
Joshua floored Pulev heavily on three occasions, twice in the final round, and ended
the fight with a vicious right hand to retain his IBF, WBA and WBO titles.
The explosive performance from Joshua would have demanded the attention of
Tyson Fury – they remain on a collision course to decide an undisputed champion in 2021.
Undefeated WBC champion Fury holds the only major belt outside of Joshua’s grip and a
meeting between them would be the biggest match in world boxing – after delivering
this thrilling knockout in front of a crowd of 1,000 people plus boxing great
Floyd Mayweather, Joshua moved a step closer to making it a reality.
Anthony Joshua victory is now being celebrated on all social media platforms by sport lovers as they await the bout between him and Tyson Fury.
