Kubrat Pulev-Ivica Perkovic To Battle in Rostock

By Edward "Eddy" Chaykovsky

The IBF's number one heavyweight contender Kubrat Pulev has had a lot of trouble holding down an opponent for Saturday night in Rostock, Germany. A number of fighters have accepted and then withdrawn from the contest. But now it appears Ivica Perkovic (20-23, 15KOs) will be the man to step in the ring. Perkovic is always ready for battle with defeats in 2013 to several known fighters, including Alexander Dimitrenko, Hughie Fury, Gary Cornish, Hughie Fury, and Alexander Ustinov.

Well what do you know ... I just read at another site that Pulev is going to be fighting the UK heavyweight Danny Hughes, as a substitute for another substitute, Joey Dawejko. Seems nobody wants to fight Kubrat, least of…
