Anthony Joshua is currently in training for his yet to be officially announced bout against mandatory challenger, Kubrat Pulev. The fight is rumoured to take place on December 12th where he will square off against the Bulgarian defending his unified heavyweight championship of the world.
Joshua in camp for Pulev
Joshua, you could argue is always in a camp of some sort if his incredible physique is anything to go by. But it looks like he has stepped up training in preparation to take on Kubrat Pulev in the UK this winter. Even though the fight is still 9 weeks out we have to remember that Joshua (like many boxers) has had a year-long lay-off due to the pandemic. His last outing coming with a unanimous points victory where he avenged the loss to Andy Ruiz Jnr.

Anthony Joshua next fights
Anthony Joshua will fight Kubrat Pulev on December 12th in the UK. Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Boxing revealed they will attempt to lobby for fans to be allowed to the bout but as it stands it looks unlikely.
Should Joshua triumph against the experienced Pulev he has another mandatory challenger lined up in the shape of Oleksandr Usyk, should he be victorious against Derek Chisora.
This all remains to be seen. However, the one we all want to see is Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury for the undisputed Heavyweight Championship of the world. Fury, with his own hands full, has another date to be announced against Deontay Wilder.
Regardless, if this video is anything to go by, Joshua is looking to ‘seek and destroy’ all comers.
