Joshua on the other hand claimed 21 of his 23 triumphs via knockouts while his only defeat was against American-Mexican fighter Andy Ruiz Jr. Pulev told BBC:

"We see a lot of mistakes from Anthony.
"I think these mistakes, and the bad sides, stay. The most important thing is how I perform on Saturday night. When I am good, I beat him well. Right now I feel very good, strong and powerful.
"This fight is not only for me. This fight isn't just for boxing. It is for all of Bulgaria. Nobody from my country has ever been heavyweight champion of the world.
"I think after this fight I'm going to fight with Tyson Fury. I don't believe that the Joshua vs Fury fight is going to happen because I will win on Saturday night. I think the world needs a new world champion like me. I am the new world champion."
