The International Boxing Federation heavyweight clash between Anthony Joshua and Bulgarian boxer Kubrat Pulev will hold in Istanbul , Turkey in May .
The date and venue of the fight were confirmed on Pulev ’ s official Facebook page .
Pulev , 38 posted a link to an article that appears to claim that the much – anticipated fight will take place at the Vodafone Arena – home of Turkish football club Besiktas .
The pair are due to fight this year , with Pulev the mandatory challenger for Joshua ’ s IBF heavyweight title .
But according to SunSport while talks are ongoing, any clash between the two boxers will only take place in either the United Kingdom , United States or Saudi Arabia .
No word though has come from Joshua’ s camp today regarding the fight .
Both boxers had been due to clash at Cardiff ’ s Principality Stadium back in October 2017 , but Pulev had to pull out with injury and was replaced by Carlos Takam.
Joshua is thought to be keen to return to London for his next fight .
And it was revealed last month that the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium had emerged as a very real contender to host the bout.
