Anthony Joshua vs Kubrat Pulev set to be moved from 02 Arena to Wembley Arena as Eddie Hearn hopes 1,000 fans can watch

 ANTHONY JOSHUA’S title fight with Kubrat Pulev is set to be moved from The O2 to Wembley Arena.

Eddie Hearn will shift the December 12 battle after plans to host as many as 4,000 fans were hit by the second coronavirus lockdown.

AJ Pulev live stream , 31, will defend his WBA, WBO and IFB heavyweight belts for the first time since his victorious rematch against Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia last December.

The superstar and promoter Hearn had been hoping to host a homecoming with a limited audience at The 02.

And following the government’s second national lockdown earlier this month, Hearn was even looking at staging the fight abroad in a bid to get bums on seats.

He claimed scrapping AJ and Pulev’s original fight at Spurs’ new stadium in July saw £8million lost at the gate.

But Wembley Arena, also known as the SSE, will be the venue - just one week after hosting Billy Joe Saunders’ WBO super middleweight title fight against Martin Murray.

Despite the lockdown, Hearn also remains hopeful he can secure entry for 1,000 boxing-starved fans.

Hearn told the Mail: “It is looking like Wembley Arena.

“We are set up there at the moment and obviously the situation with a second lockdown has changed things.

How to Watch AJ Pulev Fight online

AJ Pulev live stream Anthony Joshua’s crucial world title clash against Kubrat Pulev has been rescheduled as Britain’s heavyweight star returns in a spectacular ending to the boxing year at The O2 on December 12, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Joshua was due to defend his WBA ‘super’ IBF and WBO belts against IBF mandatory challenger Pulev in June, but will now receive his hotly anticipated first fight on UK soil in over two years.

The two-time world king regained his titles from Andy Ruiz Jr in a rematch victory in Saudi Arabia last December, and cannot afford another shock setback against the Bulgarian, with negotiations ongoing for an undisputed world title fight with WBC champion Tyson Fury in 2021.

December 12 is the date and once again the heavyweight belts go up in the air and it is my sole focus to make sure that come December 13 they are in their rightful place in the UK,” said Joshua. AJ vs Pulev live

Iron Mike is back. Tyson v Jones Fight will be Sunday, November 29 in Australia.

 The Tyson vs. Jones pay-per-view event costs $49.99 in the U.S. The event can be ordered at or its streaming apps, as well as at and major cable TV providers. 

The Tyson vs Jones fight online free is an eight x two-minute round exhibition fight.

Originally agreed for six three-minute rounds, the conditions were shifted to the current format after the sanctioning body, California State Athletic Commission (CSAC), refused to sign off on three-minute rounds.

"Everything's to his advantage," Jones said on the Joe Rogan Podcast.

"At this point, the fans are so excited about it, I wouldn't want to pull the rug from under the fans... and they (Team Tyson) will try and sue me.

"It's not really worth it, so I'm going to go in and do these two rounds, but I'm going to have to work a little bit faster than I expected to."

Even though it's an exhibition, no headgear will be required. Tyson v Jones will wear 12 ounce gloves. 

CSAC have also said their referee won't let things escalate beyond exhibition intensity.

"In this match, the referee will have the authority to stop the fight if it strays outside the boundaries of a competitive boxing exhibition," CSAC said in a statement.

Additionally, CSAC has confirmed that no judges will be scoring the bout, meaning they won't declare a winner.

Instead, a trio of former champions - Christy Martin, Vinny Pazienza and Chad Dawson - will remotely score the bout for the WBC in order to present the 'winner' with the Frontline Battle Belt.

Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua could happen twice in 2021, says Eddie Hearn

British heavyweights Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury could meet twice next year, though both have other business to sort first.

Heavyweight rivals Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury could be set to meet twice in 2021, according to promoter Eddie Hearn.

The two world champions are seemingly closing in on meeting in the ring but, before they can face each other, both have other business to take care of.

Joshua is due to defend his IBF, WBA and WBO titles against Kubrat Pulev in a bout that was originally scheduled to take place at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on June 20, only to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

As for Fury, the holder of the WBC belt, he is set to once again go up against Deontay Wilder in a third episode of their rivalry.

A recent media report suggested Wilder - who lost the title to Fury in their February rematch - could be willing to step aside to allow a unification showdown between the Brits to happen next, provided he is first in line for a crack at the winner.

While Hearn says Joshua has "no problem" signing a deal to face Fury, he explained why the fight is not expected to happen before the end of this year.

"I had a conversation [on Thursday] saying, 'Wilder is not stepping aside, we will take care of that fight, you take care of the Pulev fight, but let's get a deal done for 2021'," Hearn told Sky Sports.

"We have no problem signing now to fight Fury in 2021.

Boxing-Pulev says he would not step aside for Joshua-Fury fight

The IBF's mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev said he would not accept a proposal to step aside and give world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua a chance to fight first with fellow Briton Tyson Fury.

The 39-year-old Bulgarian was scheduled to meet Joshua on June 20 but the fight was postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak with promoter Eddie Hearn floating the idea for the two Brits' unification bout in the event of a long postponement.

Joshua has also said that a blockbuster fight with Fury, who is set to meet Deontay Wilder in a rematch later this year following a seventh round stoppage win in February, was needed to determine a single dominant figure in the division.
