Kubrat Pulev looks forward to fight with Anthony Joshua next month
Kubrat Pulev has revealed he will face WBA and IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua on October 28 in Cardiff.
IBF mandatory challenger Pulev was widely expected to be named Joshua's next opponent after Wladimir Klitschko announced his retirement, scuppering the Briton's hopes of a world title rematch with the Ukrainian.
There has been no official announcement from Joshua's promoters, while Pulev stopped short of naming the venue for the bout in the Welsh capital - hotly tipped to be the Millennium Stadium.
The Bulgarian, who has won 25 of his 26 contests in the paid ranks, wrote on Facebook: "Anthony Joshua is a great and dangerous rival. But his style fits perfectly on mine."
