In this virtual interaction, a fan asked Eddie Hearn about which round would ‘AJ’ be able to stop Pulev.

I think it’s a tough fight. I think it’s gonna be back and forward for the first 6 or 7 rounds, 5 or 6 rounds and I think AJ is gonna mark him up, he’s gonna bash him up, I think he’s gonna knock him out and it’s going to be a great performance from AJ,” replied Hearn.

Eddie Hearn felt elated on fans being back to the stadium to watch the biggest contest of 2020. Though this fight will be an exciting one, Hearn believes there won’t be much of a tussle that ‘AJ’ would have to go through. He marked the first 6-7 rounds of the fight being huge, which also has the capacity to determine the winner of the fight.

It would be enthralling to see who goes next against Joshua if he gets past Kubrat Pulev this Saturday. Fans wish to see the greatest heavyweight battle of this decade, Anthony Joshua vs Tyson Fury. But there have been no official confirmation made from Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn or from Tyson Fury’s promotion.

Can Anthony Joshua defend his titles this weekend?

Anthony Joshua exhibits a sound record of 23-1 in his pro-Boxing career. Joshua suffered a major setback in 2019 summer, losing to Andy Ruiz Jr, but the Britisher bounced back to win his rematch against the foe.

He’s counted among the finest heavyweights of the new boxing era and can cement himself at Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, or Evander Holyfield level.

 

Though Joshua enters his Saturday night battle as a favorite, he won’t have it easy at all. Kubrat Pulev might give him a tough time inside the ring.

The Bulgarian showcases a 28-1 Boxing record and separates himself from Joshua with his enriching experience. Joshua will look to avoid this fight going a distance as Pulev gets menacing in the later half of the fight.

Both the gentlemen are coming off unanimous decision victories from their last appearance in the Boxing ring. The fight would be really intriguing in the initial rounds, and the duo will look to begin their momentum by knocking each other down in these initial rounds.

Hoping for an absolute blinder this Saturday and a magnetic performance from both these fighters.
