The heavyweight champion will be defending his title against Pulev, who was named the mandatory challenger by the International Boxing Federation (IBF) after Waldimir Klitschscko announced his retirement, quashing any plans for a rematch.

Thirty-six-year-old Bulgarian Pulev has lost just one of his 26 professional fights - to Klitschko in 2014 - with an impressive 13 knockouts.

Joshua has won every single one of his 19 fights, all knockouts. The 27-year-old British fighter is now 'raring to go', according to promotor Eddie Hearn.
