By Rostislav Chanev/BG Sport
Kubrat Pulev has a new opponent for the gala in Rostock on the 5th of April.
The Cobra is going to fight Joey Dawejko in a stay busy fight. Th3 23-year-old American has 14 matches as a pro, winning 9 of them and losing 3. Another 2 of his fights ended in a draw.
The former youth world champion is going to fight with Pulev for the right to be mandatory challenger to the IBF/WBO/IBO/WBA champion Wladimir Klitschko.
Pulev last fought against another American. That was Joey Abell, who Pulev defeated with a technical knockout in December.
"I don’t know a lot about my opponent. he is not a famous name in the world of boxing. I don’t think it will be a problem to beat him. I don’t underestimate him and I will be 100 percent focused on the fight“, Pulev said.
