Anthony Joshua and Kubrat Pulev are set for the final significant heavyweight fight of 2020.
The unified heavyweight title fight will be held at SSE Arena, Wembley.
The official weigh-in session is a mere formality for heavyweights, though both boxers shared plenty of harsh words on the stage and had to be physically restrained on at least two occasions.
Watford’s Joshua (23-1, 21KOs) checked in at a stacked 240.8 pounds, nearly four pounds heavier than when he weighed a lean 237 pounds in his multi-title regaining effort over Andy Ruiz last December in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, reminds Boxing Scene.
Bulgaria’s Pulev (28-1, 14KOs) weighed 239.7 pounds, nearly nine pounds lighter than when he weighed 248¼ pounds in a 10-round win over Rydell Booker last November in Fresno, California.
