Anthony Joshua vs Kubrat Pulev betting tips
Wally Downes Jr – AJ rounds 2-6
I expect Pulev to come in significantly lighter than his usual 18ish stone, in a bid to be quick around the ring.
But that will reduce his punch resistance against one of the most ruthless fight finishers on the planet.
I don’t think there is much getting in the way of AJ winning by stoppage between rounds 2-6 thanks to a jab, right hand and left-hook combination.
John Hutchinson – AJ rounds 6-8
Intriguing to see which Joshua strides out at Wembley Arena, the jab and mover or the big banger.
Time out of the ring has probably helped him hone both into a new and improved style. I expect the champ to get to work early, using his superior reach to keep Pulev at bay.
This should frustrate the Bulgarian into mistakes leading to a KO finish for the Brit. I fancy rounds 6-8 as Joshua goes through the gears to make a statement to Tyson Fury.
Chisanga Malata – AJ round 10
Anthony Joshua is going to have to stick and move for the first few rounds to avoid the storm this bulging Bulgarian will bring early doors.
Much like it was in his revenge job over Andy Ruiz Jr, the jab will be the key for ‘AJ’ to keep Pulev at bay. If he can tire out ‘The Cobra’ and avoid trading on the inside, I can see him getting a late stoppage.
I’m backing Joshua to get a late stoppage. And if I were a betting man, I’d put my money on him winning the fight in the tenth round.
Anthony Joshua and Kubrat Pulev finally fight on December 12
