Since that defeat, we have seen Pulev steadily realign his career with five consecutive victories over game contenders such as Derick Chisora, Samuel Peter and Kevin Johnson fight his way back into title contention. Technically speaking, Pulev is very well drilled with a typical, stand-off, and patient style which derives from the Eastern European school of fighting. Given time and space, Pulev will be a dangerous and formidable opponent especially given his ability to jab effectively coupled with a reach of 80 inches and the fact he stands at 193cm does make him quite the handful as it is always hard to control range against someone of those dimensions. Nonetheless, Anthony Joshua will still enter the ring,
this month the heavy favourite to move to 20-0 with 20 knockouts.

In boxing, a phrase you hear thrown around quite a lot is ‘one punch is all it could take’ and that is never more accurate when approaching a heavyweight fight. Joshua will have to be wary and avoid any slip-ups here against a man in Pulev, intent on correcting where he went wrong in the past and exploiting his less experienced foe. On the other hand the youth, energy, power of the younger champion should be enough to see him prevail and see him move one step closer to the lucrative unification bout against Deontay Wilder where we will finally see the picture become clearer in the heavyweight division and where we will finally be able to see one man establish divisional supremacy at Heavyweight for the first time since the great Lennox Lewis retired in 2004.
