British Heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua will fight Kubrat Pulev at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Saturday 20 June.
The first-ever boxing match at Spurs’ home ground will see Bulgarian veteran fighter Pulev, 38 take on Joshua as the mandatory IBF challenger, who holds the WBA, IBF and WBO titles.
Joshua won back the belts with a unanimous points victory in his rematch against Andy Ruiz Jr. back in December, and he’ll be looking to retain the belts back in London for the first time on home turf since fighting at Wembley back in September 2018.

Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn said last week that talks were also underway for an all-British unification fight between Joshua and Tyson Fury, but that fight is unlikely to happen before the end of the year.
Fury will likely take on Wilder again in a third contest with the American this summer, but should both Joshua and Fury both win their next fights, a monumentally massive all-British unification fight would be next on the agenda for both camps.
