Joshua vs Pulev betting odds

Written by

Anthony Joshua is a red hot 1/25 favourite to beat Kubrat Pulev in Cardiff – and just 1/7 to win by KO.

William Hill has installed Anthony Joshua as its 1/25 favourite to beat Kubrat Pulev following the official announcement of their heavyweight showdown today. Pulev, whose only professional defeat was to Vladimir Klitschko in 2015, is rated a 9/1 shot to beat the unified champion at the Principality Stadium, Cardiff on 28 October – while the draw is available at 33/1.

AJ has won all 19 of his fights by KO and he is rated a 1/7 chance to make the Bulgarian his twentieth victim. Joshua is available at 10/1 to finish the fight in the opening round.

Pulev doesn’t have the same KO rate as the WBA and IBF champion anf he has only won half (13) of his 26 fights by stoppage and is rated a 12/1 shot to stop Joshua.

“The betting odds suggest it will be an easy night’s work for AJ, said William Hill spokesman Tony Kenny, ‘but Pulev is a very strong competitor and Joshua will not be taking the big Bulgarian lightly.
