Joshua v Pulev Betting Tips
Round Group Betting – Anthony Joshua Round 7-12 @ 15/8 with William Hill
Joshua v Pulev Betting Preview
The fight was originally scheduled for June but was postponed due to the pandemic. As a result, Anthony Joshua hasn’t fought in just over a year. His last bout was the rematch against a clearly out of shape Andy Ruiz Jr., when he regained his titles with a Unanimous Decision (UD) victory against the American.
The 39-year-old Bulgarian stands in the way of Joshua and two potential fights against WBC champion Tyson Fury in 2021.
Pulev was twice European heavyweight champion and the only blemish on his record came on the only occasion he challenged for a world title and was defeated by Wladimir Klitschko in 2015. In that fight Pulev was knocked down three times before succumbing to a fifth-round KO.
Pulev’s last fight was in November last year when he defeated Rydell Booker of the USA by a Unanimous Decision after 10 rounds.
This is a fight that Joshua will be expected to win, but there are obvious concerns as to whether he can return to the same level he was prior to the first fight against Ruiz. Pulev is a serious obstacle for Joshua and has a strong jab that can cause damage if the British champion isn’t careful.
