Anthony “AJ” Joshua (23-1) is unified world heavyweight champion, but this popular champion talks more about focus and patience after almost losing everything he had worked so hard to achieve. Just 18 months ago, Joshua defended his belts against a replacement fighter, Andy Ruiz Jr. Ruiz rocked Joshua and shocked the world, leaving AJ a lost and broken fighter. Instead of falling into depression or coming up with excuses, Joshua changed his approach in the rematch. His dedication shined through as he earned a unanimous decision of Ruiz last December to reclaim all four of his belts.

It’s unreal to consider that Joshua may have even more to lose in this fight against Pulev. But what comes next for A.J. could be the biggest fights boxing has seen in many years. Word from both promoters is that there is a financial agreement on an undisputed heavyweight title unification between Joshua and Tyson Fury. The expectation is these two giants of British boxing will fight two back to back mega-bouts in 2021. However it makes sense that this only happens if Joshua keeps his belts, which means he could lose it all again if he fails to beat Pulev.

Kubrat “The Cobra” Pulev (28-1) is a top contender in boxing’s heavyweight division and ranked in the top ten worldwide, but he has only fought for the world championships one time before. Pulev has fought enough big names like Derek Chisora and Maurice Harris to have a great reputation. In 2014, Pulev got his chance against world champion Wladimir Klitschko. Pulev got knocked to the canvas twice in the first round, and was eventually knocked out in the fifth round of his only shot at the world titles.

Pulev almost had a second title fight in 2017, when he was set to fight Anthony Joshua. However Pulev suffered a shoulder injury that forced him out of the scheduled bout. Joshua moved on to fight Carlos Takam, while Pulev did not fight again until one year later. Now, Pulev finally has a shot at Joshua and glory he missed out on three years ago. Will this be the last title shot for the big Bulgarian, or the beginning of his reign as champ?
