AJ promises Pulev spectacular
Anthony Joshua says he will be looking to put on a show when he fights Kubrat Pulev on 28 October.
AJ has been plotting his next move since adding the WBA belt to his IBF crown by beating Wladimir Klitschko at Wembley in front of 90,000 fans in April.
It has now been confirmed he will face Pulev at the Principality Stadium in October, with 80,000 expected to be packed into the Welsh national stadium.
Joshua, who is 1/40 to win the fight, will be protecting his 19-0 unbeaten record and will be taking on a man whose only defeat came at the hands of Klitschko in 2014.

The 10/1 Bulgarian has since gone on to beat the likes of Derrick Chisora, Samuel Peter and Kevin Johnson and is now the mandatory challenger.
Potential super fights with the likes of Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder have been mentioned for Joshua but first he will need to get past the dangerous 'Cobra'.
The 27-year-old has assured fans he will not be taking anything for granted in his preparations for the fight and has promised to give those watching something to shout about.
"October 28 can't come soon enough," said Joshua. "I have been eager to get back in the ring since Wembley and now we are confirmed and ready.
"I'll be locked away focusing on fight number 20 for the next eight weeks. I am excited to experience the atmosphere in a sold out Principality Stadium and aim to give the fans a spectacular night."
Joshua is 1/8 to win by KO, TKO or Disqualification, with Pulev at 16/1 in the same market.
