Kubrat Pulev made a wonderful commitment surrounding his fight with Anthony Joshua, but only if he wins the bout.

The Bulgarian will go up against the 27-year-old Londoner at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff on the 28th of October.

Pulev is the mandatory IBF challenger to Joshua and will attempt to win the WBA Superweight, IBF and IBO heavyweight titles.

He goes into the match boasting an excellent record of 25-1 with the only loss coming against Wladimir Klitschko.

Pulev heads into the fight at the Welsh capital in confident mood. 

He's vowed to donate half his winnings to charity if he upsets the bookies to beat Joshua.

Pulev said: "Day after day the big battle in Cardiff is coming, If I win this game, I’ll donate half the money to charity causes."

"For orphanages or hospitals for life-saving and others, I’ll be happy to be a world champion."

"Let the money make others happy, those that are in need.” Pulev continued.

However, Joshua is also feeling positive ahead of his bout with the 36-year-old.

He also possesses an excellent boxing record throughout his career. The Watford-born boxer boasts numbers of 19-0 with all of his wins coming through knockouts.

The undefeated boxer suggests he wants to put on a show against Pulev in October.

Joshua said: "My journey doesn’t stop. A mandatory challenger, I didn’t want to give up any of these belts. I worked very hard to be in this position.

“It’s about finesse and outclassing your opponent. But if I need to go to war I will. But I could do it with ease as well."

Despite his confidence, he is aware that it could potentially be an extremely tough fight against the Bulgarian. 

The former Olympian said: "I want to show some skills but if I have to go to war in the trenches I will.

"Sometimes I feel these fighters are bringing 30 per cent more than they can imagine because they want to prove themselves."
