As previously reported on BoxingScene.com, during Tuesday's IBF purse bid - K2 Promotions beat out Sauerland Event to secure the promotional rights to the heavyweight clash between IBF/IBO/WBA/WBO champion Wladimir Klitschko and mandatory challenger Kubrat Pulev. The fight is tentative for September 6th at the O2 World Arena, a 16,000-seat venue in Hamburg, Germany.

Klitschko’s K2 Promotions securing the rights with a winning bid of just over $7.25 million, and Sauerland, who promote Pulev, offered over $5.29 million.

"No matter where and when, I will get the title. I'm ready to replace Wladimir Klitschko as the world champion," Pulev said.

Should be a good fight. Pulev is around 10 levels above Leapai. Plus Puliev is 6'4 and a half and he's 245lbs so Wladimir won't be able to lean on top of him all night.

Pulev is hugely overrated. He won't win a round.

[QUOTE=Dr.Eisenfaust;14673503]Pulev is an easier fight for Povetkin thant for Klitschko if you talk about styles.[/QUOTE] I don't agree, 60-40 fight in Povetkin's favor but Klitschko more like 80-20.

Ok Pulev is a special fighter, but has he ever fight someone as special as Klitschko? If I were Pulev, I would psychologically prepare for the first one-two combo that would eventually land on my face...
