International Boxing Federation (IBF) and World Boxing Association (WBA) Heavyweight champion of the world Anthony Joshua is set to take on Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev on October 28 in Cardiff, Great Britain.

According to the British newspaper  Mirror, the undefeated Brit has been ordered by the IBF to face Pulev, the mandatory challenger, after a rematch with Klitschko was cancelled because the latter retired.

Joshua recently TKOed Klitschko in the 11th round at Wembley in April. If Joshua ups his record to 20-0, that could mean a lucrative unification bout against New Zealander WBO champion Joseph Parker, who takes on either Hughie Fury in Manchester on September 23 or WBC champ Deontay Wilder.
