If he can take the easy route to a title shot then other fighters (and their handlers) will want to go that route too.
If anyone deserves a title shot, it's Kubrat Pulev. In only 17 pro fights this guy has mostly fought tough opposition and has signature wins over ranked contenders Ustinov, Dimitrenko and Travis Walker.
Pulev said he wants another few fights before Wlad, he's very focused and wants to get himself truly ready.
