    Kubrat Pulev has warned Anthony Joshua his 'end is going to come like lightning' next month.

    The Bulgarian, with a record of 28-1, has revealed his desire to 'expose him to the world for a second time'.

    Pulev, speaking to Marc Gatford via the Betway Insider blog, said: "This is going to be a mind game and a chess game for as long as it lasts – a master chess game – but the only difference is the end is going to come like lightning.

    "I can tell the fans that I will expose AJ again and prove they have been idolising the wrong guy.

    "I will expose him to the world for a second time.”

    Anthony Joshua says he would take a pay cut to fight Tyson Fury in the UK.

    The 31-year-old said: “Yeah, why not? Now I'm fighting Kubrat Pulev for a massive pay cut.

    “We have to keep the sport alive, Matchroom are taking pay cuts this year, we have to keep the sport alive.

    "We are all doing our part at the minute, It's all experience. We are doing it now so I wouldn't mind doing it again.

    "It's not harming me, and it's for a bigger cause as well, it's a massive cause and a big fight but the main objective is how do we get Fury in the ring.”
