The camps for unified heavyweight world titleholder Anthony Joshua (19-0, 19 KOs), of England, and mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev (25-1, 13 KOs), of Bulgaria, have made a deal for the fight to take place on Oct. 28, according to sources with knowledge of the agreement. The likely site is Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, Wales, but it’s not done yet. There is an outside chance of the fight being in Las Vegas. Joshua promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Boxing will be in Las Vegas this week because he also promotes secondary light heavyweight titlist Nathan Cleverly, who defends against Badou Jack on Saturday’s Floyd Mayweather-Conor McGregor undercard, and he likely will continue talking with MGM Grand executives about possibly hosting Joshua-Pulev.
