Anthony Joshua knocks out Pulev, retains world heavyweight titles

Anthony Joshua has ended his 2020 in style; after emphatically beating Bulgarian challenger Kubrat Pulev to retain his world heavyweight titles.

Putting his WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO titles on the line in front of 1,000 people inside the Wembley Arena. AJ sent the London fans home happy with a solid display; defeating his opponent in style.

It was just over a year ago that Joshua was last in the ring, avenging his loss over Andy Ruiz Jr from the summer of the same year.

Losing on his American debut in June of 2019 certainly woke up Anthony Joshua, and after putting on a boxing clinic a few months later in Saudi Arabia, it’s now clear that the Brit has learnt a lot from that lone loss.

Oh yes, 2021 could be the year we finally see Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury.

After successfully defending his titles this evening, AJ’s path to Fury just got a whole lot clearer, however, there could be a certain Oleksandr Usyk who has something to say in terms of that WBO belt.
