Anthony Joshua tipped to “destroy” Kubrat Pulev in world title defence

Anthony Joshua tipped to “destroy” Kubrat Pulev in world title defence

Anthony Joshua will “destroy” Kubrat Pulev when the heavyweight rivals clash next month.

That is the view of the Brit’s promoter Eddie Hearn who has backed his man to set up a meeting with Tyson Fury in style.

Victory for Joshua on December 12 will clear the way for him to take on his domestic rival next spring.

And Hearn told Sky Sports “I went to see him yesterday, he looked absolutely sensational.

“He’s moving so well. We know he’s brought in a couple of new trainers with Rob McCracken leading the way.

“He’s learning, he’s punching so hard, so sharp, so fast. I think this is going to be a tough fight against Kubrat Pulev. I also think he is going to absolutely destroy him.

“I think he’s going to break him down, he’s going to dissect him, and he’s going to punish him. I think you’re going to see a statement. I don’t want to put too much pressure on him, but I really do. That’s what I think.

“AJ will always be a relaxed, humble guy, but I really believe having seen the improvement that he’s made, the spite in his punches, I think you’re going to get a thrilling display from Anthony Joshua.”

Joshua and Pulev were due to clash at the Tottenham Stadium in June but the coronavirus crisis has delayed it by six months.
