Kubrat Pulev Wants To Ruin Anthony Joshua’s Plans For Super Fight With Tyson Fury
Kubrat Pulev wants to derail plans for Anthony Joshua vs. Tyson Fury.
Joshua holds the WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and IBO Heavyweight Titles. He’ll defend all of his gold against Pulev on Saturday night, December 12. The title bout will take place inside the SSE Arena, Wembley in London, England. Fans will be allowed in attendance at a reduced capacity of 1,000.
During an interview with Ring Magazine, Pulev said he’s hoping to steal Joshua’s thunder by taking his gold and his super fight with Fury.
“I feel healthy and happy. I have a lot of energy. After the fight and after the win, I will be really happy. I think after this fight I’m going to fight with Tyson Fury. It will be good. I don’t believe that the Joshua vs. Fury fight is going to happen because I will win on Saturday night. I think the world needs a new World Champion like me. I am the new World Champion. I am coming.”
For Pulev, he’s motivated by his late father, who made it his wish for Kubrat and his brother Tervel to become world champions.
“This was my late father’s dream. That is why me and my brother are here. His project was to have sons, and for them to become boxing champions. And we are now real, this is now fact. He looks down from above and I’m sure he’s happy. He wants to win on Saturday night with me.”
Joshua vs. Pulev will air live on DAZN in the U.S. and on Sky Sports in the UK. The start time is 2 p.m. ET.
