Boxing - Anthony Joshua dismantles Kubrat Pulev: The way is clear for Tyson Fury

Boxing champion Anthony Joshua knocked out the toxic Kubrat Pulev with a cracking right (the highlights in the video). The way is clear for the heavyweight mega-fight against Tyson Fury.

First Anthony Joshua bowed dutifully in front of the 1000 fans in the Wembley Arena, then he hurried to the first row of the audience. There was buddy Floyd Mayweather. The shrill superstar and once the best pound-to-pound boxer from the USA had supported Joshua in his knockout victory in the world championship fight for the heavyweight crown against the long brave Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev.

"His bling-bling blinded me a bit," joked Joshua about the appearance of the jeweled "Money" Mayweather, who resigned unbeaten after 50 fights in 2017 and likes to present expensive outfits. "He's a great fighter, a damn good guy, gentleman, I respect his craft," Mayweather said of Joshua, who didn't give his opponent a chance.

"In and of itself, Pulev got into the fight well. He deserved a better end," Pulev's German coach Ulli Wegner told SID on Sunday. The 78-year-old was unable to fly to London due to contractual problems. "I'll leave him alone for a few days. He's a good boy, has shown great morals," said Wegner.
