Fortune seems to be smiling on Anthony Joshua.

Our multi-belt world champion was concerned that he could lose his IBF belt, the one that made him a world champion.

The concern came about due to the fact there was a clause in the contract he signed for the Wladimir Klitschko fight that guaranteed the Ukrainian a re-match.

It was a similar case when Tyson Fury claimed the belts off of Wladimir.

However, whilst the IBF couldn?t wait to strip Tyson Fury of his belt, they?ve been a little more lenient with Joshua.

The IBF have decreed that they will delay Joshua?s mandatory defence against Kubrat Pulev to allow Joshua to take the re-match with the ring legend that is Wladimir Klitschko.

However, there is a rider put on the lenient action with a date of 2nd December stated as the date by which a date for the Pulev fight to be confirmed.
