It has been confirmed that Anthony Joshua’s world heavyweight title fight against Kubrat Pulev on June 20 could be moved to July.
His promoter, Eddie Hearn, said “We do have a potential date in July but, right now, we are hoping June 20 can remain the date,” while speaking to Sky Sports.
“We know we have the same strategy moving forward. Obviously the Premier League decision will play a big part in a number of sports. Plans to put new dates in place and that fight as well.” added Hearn.
He also said the British Boxing Board of Control had postponed all public boxing events under their jurisdiction, confirming that all Matchroom Boxing cards in March and April have now been moved.
Joshua had won the WBA, WBO and IBF belts and was set to take on Bulgarian Pulev, 38, for the mandatory IBF challenge in defending his title.
