He will take on Bulgaria’s Kubrat Pulev at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium on 28th October. Joshua said, “I have been eager to get back in the ring since Wembley.

“I’ll be locked away focusing on fight number 20 for the next eight weeks. I am excited to experience the atmosphere in a sold out Principality Stadium and aim to give the fans a spectacular night.”

“Anthony is a formidable opponent,” added Pulev, “We will not hug and hold, we will not run; we will stand and fight. His style fits mine perfectly and in boxing, styles make fights.

“My preparation will be very intense and I will be perfectly ready when I enter the ring so that he will have no chance to beat me.”

The fight comes just six months after Anthony Joshua beat Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium.
