Nigeria’s Anthony Joshua set to fight Kubrat Pulev as Klitschko retires


Anthony Joshua, a top Nigerian-born British boxer will have to face Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev to keep his IBF title.

Joshua was to have a rematch with Vladimir Klitschko in November but the Ukrainian on Thursday, August 3 announced his retirement from boxing.
Following Klitschko’s retirement, Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn has revealed that they will focus attention on Pulev, the only mandatory IBF challenger.
“I had a call last night saying he was retiring,” Hearn told TalkSPORT.
 “Contractually Klitschko had to take the rematch unless he retired or decided against it. We have been working on it with people in Las Vegas two or three months. We were gearing up for an announcement shortly.
 “We’ll focus on our attention on [mandatory IBF challenger] Kubrat Pulev. When we got the agreement with Klitschko it was under the provision we’d fight Pulev if it didn’t happen.”

Pulev has only one lost in his 26-fight career which came at the hands of Klitschko in 2014.
Mr. Paul Kola explains how he got 50% of his revenue after investing it in this profitable platform
