When is Anthony Joshua v Kubrat Pulev: Date? Venue? TV channel? Ring walk time? Tickets? LIVE?

Back in April, Anthony Joshua established himself as the number one heavyweight in the world by scoring an eleventh round technical knockout over former long-reigning champion Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley Stadium.

AJ unified the WBA and IBF belts in a fight for the ages in front of 90,000 people, but now has to get back to business as the time has come for him to make a mandatory defence called by the IBF.

His challenger, Kubrat Pulev fought his way back to the top of the IBF rankings following his sole defeat, to Wladimir Klitschko, in 2014.

Pulev, like Joshua, provided a rare, entertaining fight with Klitschko, but can he really test the Watford man? Here’s all you need to know about the upcoming bout:

Where and when is the fight?

Anthony Joshua v Kubrat Pulev will take place on Saturday, October 28th at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff. The reason for this is because the 74,500 capacity stadium has a retractable roof and so can put on a huge indoor show in the autumn months.

Where can I watch it on TV?

The fight will be live on Sky Sports Box Office (pay-per-view) for a likely cost of £16.95.

What time will the ring walks be?

As with all boxing matches, the Anthony Joshua v Kubrat Pulev ring walk is not set to an exact time, but it will probably be around 10:00pm-11:00pm.
