Anthony Joshua will return to the ring on Saturday after avenging his loss to Andy Ruiz Jr. last December while regaining his heavyweight titles to face the challenge of Kubrat Pulev. Joshua emerging victorious would move him one step closer to a mega-fight with WBC champion Tyson Fury to unify all four recognized world championships.

Pulev is getting what is likely his final shot to become world champion. In 2014, he suffered a knockout loss against Wladimir Klitschko in a bout for the IBF title. He has since won eight consecutive fights to earn his latest title shot. At 39 years old, the clock is ticking on Pulev, but the odds remain heavily in favor of Joshua retaining his titles.
