The real difference comes in the age gap.

Anthony Joshua is only 27. He is in his prime and the way he has been decimating opponents, including the aforementioned Klitschko, he won’t be slowing down anytime soon.

Kubrat Pulev is 36 and some think that he has slowed down a bit. But the Bulgarian ‘Cobra’ packs a mean punch and he can go toe to toe with AJ.

The Venue

The Principality Stadium in Cardiff has the capacity to seat 70,000 people.

Each and every seat is expected to be filled on the day Joshua and Pulev will step into the ring.

The false notion that heavyweights can’t draw in the same type of crowds than other weight classes will be proven wrong once and for all.

The continuation of great boxing matches in the year 2017 is playing a huge role in increasing the popularity of the sport of boxing. And Joshua vs Pulev will be another amazing matchup in this year of boxing.
