Two-time heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua brings a turbulent year in British boxing to a close with a monster night at Wembley Arena as he faces mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev.

The IBF, WBA and WBO titles will be on the line when the two giants trade leather on Saturday evening and you can follow the action exclusively live via Sky Sports Box Office on BT TV and a host of other platforms.

It's another blockbuster night of heavyweight boxing in store following the dramatic Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr and Daniel Dubois vs Joe Joyce double header on BT Sport late last month.

A long-awaited showdown against WBC king Tyson Fury awaits Joshua if he is able to navigate the challenge of his tricky Bulgarian opponent successfully.

However, the 31-year-old will not need reminding of what happened the last time he took his eye off the ball as Andy Ruiz sprang one of the biggest sporting shocks in recent memory back in June last year to snatch his heavyweight titles.

AJ knows he cannot risk perhaps his last chance to fight for the undisputed supremacy of the heavyweight division, a fight that would potentially see all four belts on the line against Fury, by losing to 39-year-old Pulev.

With an unmissable undercard teeing up what promises to be a thrilling main event, you don't want to be anywhere else this weekend. Read on to find out how you can order Joshua vs Pulev on BT TV.
