The end of the year was active in the boxing world. The industry "accelerated" after the quarantine pause and now we have the opportunity to normally observe those confrontations that should have happened earlier. Great Britain's main boxing asset, Anthony Joshua, will return to the ring to fend off experienced but rather slow veteran Kubrat Pulev.

The Bulgarian went through his best times in 2014, when he first took part in a title fight. Then Pulev was confidently overthrown by Vladimir Klitschko. Since then, Pulev has spent eight fights, in each of which he managed to win and again got a chance to win titles.

But Kubrat does not look like a rival of the level of Anthony Joshua. Last year, the Briton already shocked everyone by losing for the first time to Andy Ruiz. In the rematch, Joshua showed calm and disciplined boxing, which helped him regain his titles without any problems. It is not worth hoping that Anthony will underestimate his opponent for the second time.
