Anthony Joshua-Kubrat Pulev

When Anthony Joshua recaptured his WBA, WBO, IBF and IBO titles in December, he also inherited mandatory obligations.

It appears that he will face his IBF mandatory Kubrat Pulev first, and then his WBO mandatory Oleksandr Usyk if he is against Pulev.
Kevin Barry, who former WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker, believes that Joshua won’t have any problems against Pulev.

“I think fight is tailor-made for Joshua – especially after 12 round boxing display that he put against Andy Ruiz. I think that Eddie Hearn is looking for a spectacular performance and I think Pulev brings that,” Barry told

“Pulev is not a guy with a lot movement. A guy with not a lot power. You just have look at his knockout ratio and a guy that is pretty close 40 so he ticks a lot boxes. He is a fighter that they spent a lot of and energy promoting and marketing fight Joshua early his career only for him pull out with injury so I think it is a great fight for Anthony Joshua. It is a fight that should end with an explosive knockout.”

Barry is very familiar with Joshua, having been in opposing corner March, 2018 when Parker lost his title Joshua in Kingdom.

Parker returns to ring on February 29th in Frisco, Texas on Mikey Garcia-Jessie Vargas undercard that will be streamed live on DAZN. His opponent is expected to be named in very near future.
