Who’s Anthony Joshua fighting next? This question is on the lips of every Boxing enthusiast, following the humiliating Knock out of Kubrat Pulev!
Anthony Joshua in the early hours of Saturday, December 12, beat Bulgaria’s Kubrat Pulev by a knockout in the ninth round (Boxing has 12 rounds) to retain his Four (4) world heavyweight championship belts after a year away in a title defense.
Joshua regained the WBA, WBO, IBO and IBF titles in a re-match against Andy Ruiz Jr. last December in Saudi Arabia, after being stopped by the Mexican-American in an upset at Madison Square Garden that summer.
The first round saw both pugilists with lots of single punches, while none of them really managed to get anything special in, but Joshua had the snappier jab. Unbelievable scenes in the third round saw Pulev barely survive a huge AJ onslaught.
Although the Bulgarian came out for the third round more active than he was in the first two rounds, Joshua landed a one-two for the first meaningful shot of the round.
Then Joshua landed uppercut after uppercut to complement his overhand rights, and Pulev was left barely able to survive.
Joshua secured his 22nd knock-out against Pulev, bringing his bout records to 24-1, 22 KOs.

Tyson Fury has confirmed he wants the Anthony Joshua fight next and insists he will knock out his heavyweight rival in three rounds.
AJ was impressive at Wembley Arena on Saturday night as he made the first defence of his world titles since reclaiming the belts 12 months ago with a ninth round stoppage of Kubrat Pulev.
In his post-fight interview AJ refused to engage in talk of Fury and instead called for the fans to make the decision for him, to which they responded loudly for a fight with The Gypsy King.
Immediately, Fury posted a video on social media responding to Joshua. (CONTINUE HERE)
