And the Watford puncher will have the WBA super, IBF and IBO world heavyweight titles on the line when he gets in the ring with 36-year-old Pulev.
Tickets range from £40 to £1,500 for the bout at the 74,000-capacity ground in Cardiff, which hosted last season’s Champions League final between Real Madrid and Juventus and has an impressive retractable roof.
Joshua had wanted to face Wladimir Klitschko once again after their belting bout at Wembley Stadium earlier this year.
But he was obliged to face Pulev after the Ukrainian legend pulled out.
And with the tickets going on sale on Tuesday, the public have been quick to snap up seats on StubHub.
Eddie Hearn tweeted: “Ticket update – through 50,000 sold – £80, £100, £500 & £1500 SOLD OUT – £40, £60 and £300 still available.”
