Anthony Joshua has been cleared as he tested negative for coronavirus ahead of the heavyweight fight against Kubrat Pulev on Saturday.

According to Sky Sports, Britain’s unified champion underwent a test on Tuesday before entering the pre-fight bubble and received confirmation on Wednesday morning that he can face Pulev at The SSE Arena in Wembley on Saturday night.

Promoter Eddie Hearn confirmed the news by tweeting: “@anthonyfjoshua¬†and team Covid negative and ready to go!”

“My body is just a vessel that carries my brain so I train my brain more so than my body,” Joshua told Sky Sports.

“I’m ready for war. I’m ready for a fight. The time will come when we go to war. I’m looking forward to that date.

“It’s a privilege to be competing.”

Meanwhile, 1,000 fans will be in attendance on Saturday to watch Joshua’s first fight since avenging his defeat to Andy Ruiz Jr.

Recall that FrujuSports had previously reported that Pulev has revealed that he knows Joshua’s weaknesses and plans on using them to grab the WBA, IBF, WBO, and IBO titles.
