Anthony Joshua, a British-Nigerian boxer, has retained his WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO heavyweight titles after knocking out Bulgarian boxer Kubrat Pulev in the ninth round of their world title bout at the SSE Arena, Wembley.

The fight is Joshua’s first since reclaiming his belts from Andy Ruiz in December 2019 in Saudi Arabia.

Joshua’s victory sets up a potential all-British heavyweight unification bout against Tyson Fury in 2021.
