I will outclass Pulev in Cardiff, says Joshua

I will outclass Pulev in Cardiff, says Joshua

"It's about finesse, it's about out-classing your opponent", Joshua told Skysports.

World heavyweight boxing champion Anthony Joshua has revealed that he will change his fighting style to completely "outclass" Kubrat Pulev in his next fight.

Katie Taylor boxed on the undercard of Joshua's memorable victory over Wladimir Klitschko before a sell-out crowd of 90,000 at Wembley Stadium in the spring.

"It always adds value - that's like the cherry on top". Nobody comes to a boxing match to watch a 12-round fight, it gets boring.

The Bray ace then hammered Jasmine Clarkson in Brooklyn in her first professional fight in the US.

"I have to be prepared for the toughest challenges moving forward". You can't leave it to the judges, you have to make the decision yourself. "You have to knock someone out".

The pair clash next month in what will be Joshua's first fight since his seismic win over long-time heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko in April. That is why I like knocking people out.

"Do it without going through a war and a battle - bang, slip outside the jab, crack. All I want to do is impress my coach and if I do that, that satisfies me".

Please ensure you plan your travel into the city before purchasing your tickets and allow plenty of time for additional security checks at the venue - please visit to view the travel page for the event.

Joshua feels he is working towards a unification showdown with WBC champion Deontay Wilder.

Pulev said: 'Joshua has weaknesses.

Pulev, 36, is Joshua's mandatory challenger for his IBF belt, and the Bulgarian has only lost once - by knockout - to Klitschko (in November 2014).

Unquestionably Sanchez is the most experienced fighter Taylor has faced so far in her career.

"He's waited for this opportunity and he's like the king of Bulgaria, so as long as he puts up a good fight he'll still get credit for it".
