13th December 2020

ANTHONY JOSHUA'S stunning knockout against Kubrat Pulev was on show in super slo-motion as he tweeted: 'Thanks for coming'.

Joshua had mandatory challenger Pulev on the floor three times before closing the show in devastating fashion in round nine.

And he shared the moment a perfect one-two combination landed right on the chin and brought the fight to a close.

Pulev, 39, had been on the floor in the same round, but somehow beat the count to carry on.

But as soon as he made it to his feet, AJ, 31, made no mistake in finishing the job off as the next punch he threw had the Bulgarian out cold.

Joshua returned to the ring following a year out, the longest layoff in his career.

Immediately after retaining his WBA, IBF and WBO belts, he was confronted with the possibility of fighting Tyson Fury next year.

AJ set his sights on Fury's WBC title, the only crown missing in his quest for undisputed glory.

Joshua said: "I started this game in 2013. I've been chasing all the belts. I've been dealing with mandatories.

"Of course I want the challenge. It's not about the opponent, it's about the legacy and the belt.

"Whoever has got the belt, I would love to compete with them. If that is Tyson Fury, let it be Tyson Fury. It's no big deal.

"It's one fight at a time, picking them off one by one. That's all it's about for me. I've got to stay focused."

Promoter Eddie Hearn added: "There's been a lot of talk. As he said, it's less talk, more action.

"Since he came into the office, he wanted to be the undisputed champion of the world.

"We're going to be friendly, we're going to be nice. We know what we have to do. Starting from tomorrow, we make the Tyson Fury fight straight away.

"It's the only fight to be made in boxing. It's the biggest fight in boxing. It's the biggest fight in British boxing history.

"I know he [Joshua] wants it. He is the best heavyweight in the world, I promise you.

"He'll break him down, he'll knock him out, but for me, less talk, more action.

"We know what we want to do. It's about legacy and we will get it done."
