Eddie Hearn, promoter of the WBA, WBO and IBF heavyweight champion Briton Anthony Joshua, claims that his ward before the fight with the Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev will not make the mistakes that were made before the fight with the Mexican Andy Ruiz.
“I think we need to be careful with the predictions because we made the mistake of looking into the future before the fight with Andy Ruiz. Anthony learned a lesson from this. He did not train properly then, since all his thoughts were about the fight with Wilder. I remember when we went to ESPN to promote the fight with Ruiz, so nobody really paid attention to Andy. All questions were about the Joshua-Wilder fight. Therefore, Anthony does not look past Pulev, as does the team. We remember that night.
The ultimate goal is to become the undisputed world champion, but this will only be possible in case of victory over Pulev. I see Joshua preparing for this confrontation. I think he wants to demolish Kubrat, ”said Hearn.
As a reminder, the fight between Joshu and Pulev will take place on December 12th at the O2 arena in London, UK.
