At a press conference to officially announce their October 28th heavyweight fight in Cardiff, Anthony Joshua warned Kubrat Pulev that he’s coming for Pulev’s soul.
Yet while at the conference taking place at the home of the fight The Principality Stadium in Cardiff Whales, the champion showed respect to his opponent.

Joshua offered words of respect for his experienced Bulgarian challenger, but is determined to extend his world title reign and issued a chilling warning to Pulev.
“He’s talented, he built himself up to world title level. He got knocked down, he stayed active, he’s had wins since then – that was his only defeat and now he comes to face me… He wants what I have and I just want his soul, so let’s get it on October 28.”
And while the British born heavyweight was looking forward to a rematch to this past April’s classic against Wladimir Klitschko, he’s prepared and ready to take on anyone including Pulev.
“I’m standing in the centre circle where the ring will be and I want to go out there and show some finesse and some skill, but if I have to go to war and go to the trenches, let’s go.”
