Fury Channelling Braveheart For Pulev Fight
While some fighters were not interested or willing to come to Sofia, Bulgaria to fight Kubrat Pulev, Pulev would laud British heavyweight Hughie Fury for facing him in his backyard.
On the road to his October 27th showdown with Pulev in an IBF heavyweight eliminator, the focus is Pulev, but the goal is to meet Anthony Joshua.
Hughie Fury said: “At the end of the day a fight is a fight. I have always said that I will fight anyone, anywhere so to me it doesn’t make a difference. He might see it as an advantage, but the pressure is on him. I have no problem facing him on his home turf.
“The closer we get to the fight, the more I’m looking forward to walking out to the Braveheart music and hearing the roar from the crowd. Pulev is a tough opponent but this is the best I have ever felt going into a fight both physically and mentally and I’m ready to go there and get the win.
