Matchroom Boxing promoter confirms that Kubrat Pulev is out of the fight against Anthony Joshua.

Luckily the event itself won’t be cancelled.

Joshua will now face third ranked IBF challenger Carlos Takam and challenge ‘AJ’ for the WBA, IBO, and IBF belts.

“I received a call from Kalle Sauerland late afternoon to inform me that Pulev had injured his shoulder and maybe ruled out of the fight – this was later confirmed by his doctor. IBF rules state that the mandatory will go to the next fighter in line which is Carlos Takam,” said promoter Eddie Hearn according to the press release.

“When the Pulev fight was announced I made a deal with Takam’s team to begin camp and be on standby for this fight. When I called them this evening they were overjoyed and good to go.
