Heavyweight European champion Kubrat Pulev (17-0, 9 KOs) has confirmed to Sporta that his promoters have been negotiating with the team of former two-division champion David Haye (26-2, 24 KOs), who’s going to return to the ring on June 29th at MEN Arena in Manchester, England.
“I’ll be back likely in June. Yes, it means, that we have been in talks with David Haye for the June 29th fight. He is a strong opponent, but what should I do? Fight medicore guys? If I want to develop, I have to face strong opponents, such as David. Haye is a good, very good fighter, but I don’t think he’s better than me. I don’t care where the fight takes place,” Pulev said.
According to Haye’s trainer and manager Adam Booth, the next opponent’s name should be officially announced in mid-April.
