It is fight day and Anthony Joshua (23-1, 21 KOs) will get to fight in 2020 after all. The pandemic delayed his return to the ring, but the unified WBO, WBA, and IBF heavyweight champion will take on mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev (28-1, 14 KOs) in front of about 1,000 fans in London’s SSE Arena.
In the United Kingdom, they literally show the entire PPV card so the whole event starts at 1 PM ET/10 AM PT. There are six undercard fights before the main event, so you’re right in thinking it’ll be awhile before we get to the main event. How long are we talking? Well no earlier than 5:15 PM ET and closer to 5:30 PM ET depending on length of the fights. The good news is that this fight will not overlap with any of UFC 256.
Viewers around the world can watch this card on DAZN, while UK and Republic of Ireland viewers have to fork over £24.95 to watch on Sky Box Office PPV.
