Anthony Joshua absolutely dominated Kubrat Pulev on Saturday at Wembley Arena, defeating the heavyweight challenger via ninth-round knockout.
The bout was Joshua's first since the Brit regained his heavyweight titles by defeating Andy Ruiz Jr. in a rematch on Dec. 7, 2019. Joshua retained his IBF, IBO, WBA, and WBO heavyweight titles by defeating Pulev.
Pulev (28-2, 14 KOs) was named as a mandatory opponent for Joshua (24-1, 22 KOs). The fight will likely be Joshua's last before he faces Tyson Fury next year, though a deal has not yet been reached between the two boxers.
Following the fight, Joshua stated he wants to face the best challenger and unify the belts, adding "if that's Tyson Fury, let it be Tyson Fury."
Fury currently holds the WBC, The Ring, and lineal heavyweight titles.
