Kubrat Pulev said he will donate half of his earnings from the world heavyweight boxing title fight against Anthony Joshua to help medical workers fight the "devilish" coronavirus.

The 38-year-old Bulgarian is expected to earn around US $5 million from the fight, which has been postponed due to the pandemic, having originally been scheduled for June 20th.

He say he will donate 50% of the money to the tireless heroes in the fight against the coronavirus.

Last month Pulev said the fight would take place "towards the end of the year" due to the outbreak and that he would have no problem fighting without spectators in attendance.
