Anthony Joshua returns to the ring in June to defend his WBA, IBF and WBO titles against Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev in June. The British heavyweight recently defeated Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia in December and is now set for his homecoming fight.

Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn told Sky Sports: “He wants to fight in London in June. We’re on the verge of making that happen now. Spurs is the front runner and that’s what he’s asked me to do. We’ll be delivering that for him.”

The 30 year old last fought in London in 2018 with a clash against Alexander Povetkin at Wembley Stadium. Joshua has been eager to return to the UK since having bouts in New York and Saudi Arabia last year.

Twickenham and the Emirates Stadium were also considered for the bout however the 62,000 capacity Spurs Stadium is currently the frontrunner to do so.
