"I would have just clapped him in his jaw there and then, but I have to wait," said Joshua, weighing in at 240.8lbs, 1.1lbs heavier than the his 39-year-old opponent.

"Many years I've been in boxing and seen a lot fighters talk a lot of rubbish, then they get smacked up," Joshua told Sky Sports.

"When people come in the ring with me they are confident and then after a few rounds their soul gets destroyed."

Anthony Joshua is about to return to the ring for one of the biggest fights of the year. The British heavyweight will slug it out with Bulgarian fighter Kubrat Pulev in front of 1,000 fans at Wembley's SSE Arena in London, England.

The fight is a big one for Joshua. A convincing win for the unified champion could set up a series of money-spinning bouts with Tyson Fury, aka the Gypsy King, in either London or Las Vegas.

At the ripe old age of 39, Pulev has some work to do if he's going to stop his 31-year-old opponent. That said, the Bulgarian is no dope, having challenged Wladimir Klitschko for his belt in 2015, getting up off the canvas three times before a KO finally ended his hopes of toppling the Beast from the East.

"[Joshua] has a good style and he is a good specimen, but he has not shown any mental toughness," Pulev told reporters earlier in the week. "Yes, he has skills, but he hasn't shown the mental strength. This is something from within, in the blood of a man, and he does not have it."

Here's how to live stream Joshua vs Pulev, one of the most anticipated fights of the year, from anywhere. The main event is expected at 10.30pm.

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant Joshua vs Pulev rights holders, you won't be able to access these streaming services when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such NordVPN which offers both reliability as well as a 30-day money back guarantee.


NordVPN Get 3 months free + 30-day money-back guarantee
You can get three months free when you sign up to a year-long plan, bringing VPN access to smart devices including the Amazon Fire TV Stick, laptops, TVs and both Android and iOS mobiles and tablets. Express also offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Once you’ve made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch the fight, and pick a server which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access. Then navigate to the relevant video streaming service and you’re in.
