It’s a boxing match for the ages - the battle over the heavyweight world titles. And yes, that’s plural with Anthony Joshua’s position as the heavyweight world champion in WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO all on the line at the same time - in other words, any big boxing fan will most definitely want to watch a Joshua vs Pulev live stream.
As is the normal preparation in the weird world of 2020, both fighters are now in ‘the bubble’, having received their Covid-19 tests, and are now self-isolating in preparation for this huge heavyweight match.
While Joshua - the multiple world heavyweight champion with a win-loss ratio of 24-1 - is the very obvious expected winner, Pulev is by no means an easy opponent to be brushed off.
He has held the European Heavyweight title twice before, is ranked within the top ten active heavyweight boxers and this is the second time he has challenged for the unified world heavyweight title.
In other words, a Joshua vs Pulev live stream could see one of two scenarios - Joshua lose all of his world titles and a new face take the center stage...or, one of the greatest boxing records of all time continue forwards to greatness. What many boxing fans are hoping for though is the ultimate showdown for all of the belts next year if we get the chance to see Anthony Joshua take on Tyson Fury for a unification bout.
