However, Joshua is billed to fight Bulgarian sensation Kubrat Pulev on December 12, 2020 - and ahead of the much anticipated bout, Manny Robles who trained Ruiz during his first fight against Joshua claims the Brit is vulnerable on his right hand.

Speaking to Marc Gatford via the , Robles said:

He said:

"The right hand. If you time the right hand properly and jab to the chest, jab to the body and come over with the right hand, that’s where I feel Joshua is vulnerable.
"You saw that in the Povetkin fight who landed the right hand. Most fighters that have been able to hurt Joshua - it’s been the right hand. If you don’t work on keeping that left hand up, or getting away from the right hand, the same thing is going to continue to happen.
"Pulev is not a walk in a park, he’s an experienced fighter. He is definitely the type of fighter that gives Joshua a run for his money.
"Pulev doesn’t have the quickness Andy has, but if they study him, break him down, and come up with a good game plan he could be effective."
