The fight between Anthony Joshua and Pulev will take place December 12th at the O2 Arena. Hearn confirmed the news today and I for one am very happy the fight finally has a date. They are expecting to get at least some crowd in the venue and by December they may get their wish granted. It’s a shame that Joshua will only fight once this year but with the pandemic there isn’t much anybody can do.
It also looks like if Both Joshua and Fury get through their next fights then they will fight each other next. Joshua has a WBO mandatory in Usyk next but from comments that Hearn has made it sounds like they may vacate the belt and just get on with the Fury fight.
