By anyone’s standards, last year was a rollercoaster for Anthony Joshua. The Briton lost his WBA, WBO and IBF belts in a shock defeat to Andy Ruiz JR in June 2019, before regaining them with a much more measured performance in the rematch six months later.
Joshua’s 2020 has been extremely quiet by comparison, although the coronavirus pandemic has severely restricted live sport. His only bout of the year comes against mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev, with a fight having been in the works for more than three years.
However, what could come next is even more exciting. Victory for Joshua would set up a heavyweight showdown with WBC champion Tyson Fury in 2021, with a two-fight deal thought to be in the works.
When and where is the Joshua vs Pulev taking place?
The fight will take place at Wembley Arena in London, just a few miles away from Joshua’s hometown of Watford.
A stacked undercard is set to begin at 7.30pm UK time, with the main event expected to begin some time after 10pm UK time.

Is there anywhere to watch the action for free?
Unfortunately not. The lucrative nature of boxing, along with the fact that most boxers only fight a couple of times each year, means that fights are very rarely available on free-to-air channels.
