    Pulev is a stiff old mummy with a frowny face whose only approach to a fight is spamming endless jabs till his opponent quits through boredom or knocks him spark out, the latter of which Joshua is going to do.

    Pointless fight, but it's a mandatory so what are you going to do. And if it gets rid of Pulev then happy days.

    Easy KO for Joshua... Pulev's defense is awful and his only weapon is that excellent jab.

    No chances with Joshua but the next year Pulev could knock Whyte out. Lol

    Joshua won’t be rushing in to kill Pulev because he has no reason to and Pulev’s defence is awful. He’ll take his time and do a number on him and that’ll be it for Pulev.

    Pulev is too old,too stiff,fights too upright and his guard is leaky.
    Body Joshua by stoppage before the 7th is my guess.

    AJ in 5 rounds. Pulev’s jab will give him some problems for the first couple of rounds and then bang!

    btw to those slagging off AJ fighting a man who’s almost 40, doesn’t mean a thing after what Povetkin did to whyte

    Squeeky bum time lads. This is hopefully the last possible stumbling block before AJ and Fury fight!

    AJ should not try to box pulev ,instead he should try and get him out of there early. AJ needs to look out for that jab and counter right.

    I see AJ losing a couple of early rounds and people being worried, same as Povetkin match.

    But AJ will step it up at some point, and will KO Pulev within 5-6 rounds.

    Josh has a trouble early, probably. Although there's a very good chance he sticks with his new boxer style, and sits back counter jabbing and letting Pulev (the older, shorter, slower fella) come forward stalking. I imagine Joshua figures him out after four-ish, and then starts putting everything in his shots. I can see a pretty nasty KO from cross-counter over a jab, maybe a follow-up hook/uppercut combo.

    AJ KO7 IMO.

    Pulev hasn't won a meaningful contest in years now.

    AJ whenever he gets his **** together.

    The Fury win was in 2018 ( most people thought it was 50-50). He also beat Chisora in 2016.
