On the back of the official announcement of Anthony Joshua’s next title defence against Kubrat Pulev on October 28, the odds have been revealed for the crunch Cardiff clash.
Joshua has been made a massive favorite to do what ex-opponent Wladimir Klitschko did and knock out the Bulgarian brute when the pair trade blows at the Principality Stadium.
‘AJ’ is nailed-on at 1/7 to KO Pulev in Cardiff. Odds suggest the champ has an easy task to maintain 100% stoppage record.
Betway’s Alan Alger, said: “We have little doubt that AJ will entertain boxing fans with yet another KO when he faces Kubrat Pulev in Cardiff on the 28thOctober.
“His Bulgarian opponent is certainly a tough competitor. His only career defeat to date came against AJ’s last opponent Wladimir Klitschko, but we’re still as sure as 1/7 for the IBF and WBA champ to stretch his 100% KO record to 20 fights.
“Eight of the Brit’s 19 wins have come in Round 2 and that can be backed at 15/2 in the Round Betting.”
