Anthony Joshua’s heavyweight bout against Kubrat Pulev has been officially postponed, MySportDab reports.
The fight for the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO world title was initially set for June 20 but has now been delayed for at least a month due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Boxing Promoter Eddie Hearn has now confirmed that July 25 is the new date for the fight which will happen at the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
This is not the first time their fight has been postponed for various reasons.
Back in 2017, Pulev withdrawed from their fight due to a shoulder injury and replaced by Carlos Takam.

There could be more interesting fights ahead as Joshua’s promoter Hearn admitted that Tyson Fury will be AJ’s most likely next opponent.
Tyson Fury is now expected to fight Deontay Wilder for a third round after his stunning knockout win over the American earlier in 2020.
MySportDab understands Joshua wants his one opponent in 2020 to be Fury which would then set up an all-UK heavyweight unification fight.
