Joshua Says Prepared To Go To Final Bell Against Pulev

 World heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua said he is set up to go to the last ringer when he puts his WBA, IBF and WBO belts on the line against Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev on Saturday. 

England's Joshua will begin as free top pick in front from 1,000 fans at Wembley Arena for the battle that was deferred in June due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

'I'm set up to go to the last ringer. I'm a 15-round contender, not a 12-round warrior,' Joshua, who recovered his titles by beating Andy Ruiz in a re-coordinate in Saudi Arabia a year prior, said at an affable news gathering on Thursday. 

'I can convey my endurance, my boxing IQ, fixation and strength until the last ringer. 

'I will get hit. He will get hit as well. I'll be the sole survivor.' 

Pulev, 39, was kept from battling Joshua in 2017 as a result of injury however says he is prepared to cause an annoyed. 

'I have held up quite a while. I realized this battle would come back once more,' he said. 'Presently I am sound. I'm not 22 years of age, obviously, but rather I am prepared at this point. I have everything to be victor.' 

Joshua's just thrashing came against Ruiz in Madison Square Garden in June, 2019. That stun rout, he demands, has made him into a more unpleasant contender.

Pulev, similar to Joshua, has just a single proficient thrashing on his card, a knockout by Wladimir Klitschko in 2014. 

Joshua, who has not battled in England since beating Alexander Povetkin in 2018, said the way that a restricted group will be permitted in to watch the battle was not a factor. 

'It will be useful for the fans yet I'm simply centered around Pulev,' he said. 'No lack of respect to the fans however I have a genuine test and that is all I'm considering. 

'At the point when I win I can appreciate it afterwards.'department added.
