Anthony Joshua’s defense of his IBF, WBA, WBO, and IBO world heavyweight titles against Kubrat Pulev has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, Matchroom Boxing announced Friday.

The bout was scheduled to take place at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on June 20.

Matchroom said it’s working on a new date for the fight and is “continuing to explore the possibility” of holding the event at the same location.

The two were also set to fight in October 2017 at Principality Stadium in Wales, but Pulev withdrew because of a shoulder injury.
