Fury Looks To Impress With Pulev Win
Hughie Fury feels with a win against Kubrat Pulev on October 27th, he’d be in the conversation as the best heavyweight in the world.
Fury is set to fight the 37-year-old Bulgarian in the latter’s capital of Sofia, Bulgaria with the winner becoming the mandatory opponent for Anthony Joshua’s IBF world heavyweight title.
“This is one step to the top, and this is what I’m aiming to do,” Fury told Sky Sports News. “To be the best, you’ve got to beat the best, just one step at a time.
“Whoever has got the belts at the time, they are the ones I want. I’m here to be the best, so after this fight whoever is a step ahead of us, whoever is in front of me, I’m going to deal with.
“I’ve learned by my mistakes. The past is the past. Now it’s about moving forward, taking positive things from there, and getting back to the top.”
Fury insists Pulev should take the 23-year-old seriously, and not look past him for a shot at Joshua.
“You mean how dangerous I am,” said Fury. “Listen, he’s got to watch out for me.
“You can’t take nothing away from Pulev, he’s a good fighter, and he’s very experienced, and he’s there to win, so I wouldn’t have it any other way.
“Trust me, it’s brutal in camp, but this is what you’ve got to do, you’ve got to grind out in camp, and make the fight easy.”
