Anthony Joshua next fight date against his mandatory contender for his heavyweight title has been slotted in reportedly.
Joshua was due to rematch Wladimir Klitschko this coming November in Las Vegas but that fell through after Klitschko officially retired from the sport.
Joshua must now face his mandatory challenger next up – Kubrat Pulev of Bulgaria.
Although not officially confirmed, respected journalist Dan Rafael of ESPN has reported that the Anthony Joshua next fight date will fall on October 28th.
Most likely at the Millienium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales. The venue has a capacity of 80,000.
If this is officially confirmed in the coming days it will mark two back to back mega stadium events for Joshua – who last competed in April in front of 90,000 fans when he stopped Wladimir Klitschko inside the distance at Wembley in London.
Joshua has been spending a lot of his time travelling since the victory and recouping after what he said at the time was one of the most gruelling training camps of his career thus far.
Should Joshua beat Pulev some massive unification fights in 2018 look like they could come into play. Most notably against American Deontay Wilder who holds the WBC title currently.
Anthony Joshua currently holds a professional boxing record of 19-0-19KO.
