ANTHONY JOSHUA FIGHT WITH KUBRAT PULEV ON THE FENCE DUE TO COVID-19

Anthony Joshua’s world heavyweight title defense against Kubrat Pulev could be delayed until July due to the chaos caused by the coronavirus, promoter Eddie Hearn said on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old Briton is due to defend his WBA, WBO, and IBF belts at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, but the British star could be forced to give up that date if Tottenham needs the ground for a potential extension of the Premier League campaign.

As a result of the outbreak of coronavirus, all top-flight football matches have been suspended until early April at the earliest causing speculation that the season will be finished in the summer.

“Obviously with the news of the Euros being canceled and the possible extension of the Premier League season, Spurs may need that stadium in June.

“We do have an option to run that fight in July as well at the same stadium. Everything now is really a case-by-case situation and a day-by-day situation of trying to think on your feet”, Matchroom Boxing’s Hearn told Sky Sports.

“June 20 is a long time away. It’s still in our plans and we have been speaking to Tottenham to make sure we’re all on the same page and that we know we have the same strategy moving forward.”

Anthony Joshua won the WBA, WBO, and IBF belts back with a unanimous points victory over Andy Ruiz Jr last December.
