KUBRAT PULEV is determined to work his way back to a shot at unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

The Bulgarian was due to fight Joshua on October 28, until an injury forced him off the show to be replaced by Carlos Takam on 12 days notice.

Pulev was the mandatory challenger for the IBF belt, a role Takam also occupied. Now Pulev is focused on recapturing his position in the rankings and getting a fight with Joshua.
