Pulev (28-1, 14 KO) is the mandatory IBF challenger. The Bulgarian's only previous title shot was a loss to Wladimir Klitschko in 2014. Since then he's won six fights, including against Dereck Chisora and Hughie Fury.
The promoters are hoping to attract 70,000 to Tottenham Stadium, which opened in April.
