Bookies think Joshua is nailed on to knock out Pulev in Cardiff
Bulgarian 12-1 for the upset
Anthony Joshua will defend his world heavyweight titles against Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev on October 28 at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, and bookmakers can't see past another routine knockout victory.
AJ is no better than 1-20 to win the fight and 1-5 for the KO, which comes as no surprise as he has won all 19 of his professional fights inside the distance, including his last contest in April when he stopped Wladimir Klitschko in the 11th round after a classic battle in which both men hit the canvas.
However, punters should be aware that Pulev is a tough competitor whose only defeat came against Klitschko and he is ranked as the number four heavyweight on boxrec.com, behind only Joshua, Alexander Povetkin and Deontay Wilder, the American WBC title holder who Joshua is expected to face in a unification match next year.
Ladbrokes make Joshua 3-1 to face Wilder next after Pulev, and have gone as far as to price it up, making the Brit 1-3 to beat him.
But that could all go out of the window if Pulev derails the Joshua train, and he is 12-1 to land a stunning upset.
