Anthony Joshua vs Kubrat Bullet

Jarod Killian's picture

Anthony Joshua TKO5

rohitkirdats's picture

I think it’s a solid fight that I expect Joshua to win. Will probably have trouble with boxing of Pulev before getting to him later on. Joshua vs Pulev

Might have a punt on Pulev if the odds are favourable though

Im going to predict a UD for Joshua.

Champion97's picture

Prediction.

This would have been a tough one for Joshua had it happened in 2017, but I think it's his easiest fight since 2016. Pulev's great counter jab has power, timing, accuracy, he controls distance, nullifies the inside, is a deceptively hard target for the right hand, only Klitschko has been able to stop him dictating with his jab, but that was a bad one for Pulev, it proved he's not adaptable, he's durable, but lacks power, variety, isn't offensively good, couldn't make an adjustment after Klitschko knocked him down. Joshua has good basics, but hits hard, is explosive, is offensively good, isn't durable, can be countered, but has a great right uppercut, and is a decent all round boxer. Pulev's jab and right hand can hurt Joshua, but not badly enough to stop Joshua without accumulation, one Pulev jab is better, but Joshua throws more, faster jabs, and is too big for Pulev to nullify the inside.

I think the jab battle will be close, quantity vs quality at times, I think Pulev will negate Joshua's right hand, will judge the distance, catch the shot in his left glove, will be out of position for it, will have a high right hand, block Joshua's left hook, I think he will frustrate Joshua early, but I think Joshua will be patient, keep Pulev busy with his jab, land more jabs. I think Pulev will slow down after 3-4 rounds, having missed his right hand, taken a lot of jabs to head and body, and it will be more mentally draining for Pulev, Joshua can do more damage, so Pulev's mind will work harder. I think Pulev will be an easy target when Joshua can get the distance for the right hand, and when Joshua can land clean power shots, I don't think Pulev can hold up for long, and when Joshua finds a home for his right hand, I'll be surprised if Pulev is still there 2 rounds later.

I think Joshua stops Pulev in 6 rounds, I wouldn't be surprised if it went to the late rounds, but I'd be surprised it went the distance, and I don't think Pulev has a shot to win.

My prediction…

It's kind of baffling how people underestimate Pulev, he is a skilled and seasoned fighter who definitely earned his place in the heavyweight top-10. It does seem, however, that the age has been catching up to him - he didn’t look spectacular in his latest fights (I’m leaving out his last fight against Rydell Booker because that was a glorified sparring session), and that’s even despite the lackluster opposition, his speed and reflexes aren’t what they used to be, and he looked quite stiff on his feet. However, he still possesses a threat to elite level fighters - his awkward movement is still there and his jab has remained terrific, particularly jabs to the body are his very underrated weapon.

If I were Joshua, I would avoid the battle of the jabs - as mentioned, Pulev has a fantastic jab, but he also has the ability to neutralize one, something he showed against Wladimir Klitschko, one of the greatest jabbers in boxing history. Where Pulev is kind of weak is when being pressured, especially by a fighter with a similar height and reach as himself - he simply doesn’t have the footwork and counterpunching skills to deal with that against an elite fighter. This makes the matchup even more interesting, because that’s where Joshua shines and is very comfortable. AJ has shown many times that he has the toolset to make an opponent like that move backwards (see Joshua vs Klitschko, Joshua vs Whyte).

Given all this, there are two “extreme” scenarios, one would clearly favor Pulev and the other one clearly favors Joshua. If Pulev establishes his jab against Joshua, he will be in command of the fight and should cruise into a very comfortable decision. If AJ will be able to apply pressure on the Bulgarian fighter from the beginning, he will eventually stop him cca in the middle rounds.

Prediction - I think that Joshua is going to struggle a little bit with Pulev’s jab in the opening rounds, but as the fight progresses, he will figure out how to deal with the Bulgarian’s main weapon, he will be hurting Pulev more and more with each round, and will go for the kill somewhere between rounds 7 and 9, ultimately stopping Pulev either in the championship rounds or shortly before. However, Pulev should not be slept on, even way past his prime he is a dangerous fighter, and because this might be his last shot at the world title, he will be well prepared.

Hope Joshua loses, even though he won't.

I have to say, those DAZN commentators make my ears bleed.

First impressions…

first, because of the broadcast problems, I need to rewatch rounds 5 to 7.

Now the fight. The way this fight worked out, it was closer to that “extreme” scenario in favor of Joshua I’ve mentioned in my prediction. Fantastic performance by AJ, aside from all the things I’ve listed in his favor, he’s also shown that his jab has become much better throughout his last two fights, the precision and timing are much better now, maybe I’m wrong but I see a bit of influence from Wlad. He fought in the better version of the way I expected him to fight (if that makes sense), he was in command throughout the entire fight, at no point was he in serious danger, he was able to successfully apply pressure on Pulev and force him to move backwards whenever it was necessary, he looked bigger, faster and more mobile than his opponent.

I have to admit, I overestimated Pulev, I kind of neglected his age and disregarded the fact that his fighting style simply does not age that well. Pulev honestly looked finished, his speed and reflexes aren't there, his footwork is almost gone - there were occasions where he couldn’t take a step back and simply stood still and absorbed punches, I was also foolished by Pulev's weak opposition leading to the fight to think that his jab has remained just as good as I remembered it to be. His style requires a lot of feinting and pawing, and as his muscle memory deteriorates the closer he is to 40 (and he is 39 now), his main weapons are deteriorating quite drastically.

At this point, Pulev's chances at a piece of the heavyweight crown are very slim, even if Joshua drops one of the titles. I genuinely don't know what his chances are against guys from outside of the top 3 since he hasn't faced anyone of note (besides AJ himself, obviously) since 2016. As for AJ, if there was any doubt that he’s an elite heavyweight, those doubts should be gone by now, I’d go even further and say that he has already lived up to his potential, and from now on he can only exceed the expectations.

I saw improvement from Joshua in this fight, he had fewer defensive lapses than earlier in his career, his jab was more accurate and purposeful,

I wasn't impressed by Dwarte I think the fight was stopped a punch too late, I don't think there should have been a count after that last shot, it could have been stopped in round 3, I was surprised it continued after Pulev turned his back

Joshua's jab is still getting better, it's fast and very accurate, the accumulation of clean jabs to the head and body knocked a lot out of Pulev, he struggled to set up the right hand, but when he landed it, he built on it, he beat Pulev at his own fight, out jabbed him, controlled the distance, and partly negated his right hand, Joshua kept Pulev out of position to land his right hand, reacted when Pulev threw a power shot, I think his ring IQ is very underrated.
