Record crowd for Joshua-Pulev


A record-breaking 70,000 tickets have been sold for Anthony Joshua’s world heavyweight title showdown against Kubrat Pulev at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium.

The event has become the fastest-selling sporting show at the stadium as Joshua attempts to register his 20th straight KO win.

Joshua will put his IBF and WBA ‘super’ heavyweight titles on the line against Pulev, whose only defeat in 26 bouts came against Wladimir Klitschko in 2014.
