Pulev Looks To Impress With an Eye on Klitschko
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

Heavyweight Kubrat Pulev (18-0, 9 KO´s), the IBF's mandatory challenger, wants stay busy before facing unified king Wladimir Klitschko next year. He will stay busy on December 14 in Neubrandenburg at the Jahnsportforum - when he takes on veteran Sherman Williams (36-13-2, 19 KO's).

"It is good that Kubrat returns the ring," says Otto Ramin, the coach of the Bulgarian boxer. "He only competed once this year, against Tony Thompson, and Pulev won clearly and definitely earned the right to challenge Klitschko, but he couldn't get his best performance there. He wants to remain active. We don't underestimate anyone, but Williams is not Klitschko. Anything other than a clear success would surprise me."

Kubrat Pulev had a similar view to this: "After a long break - nearly a year - returning in August weighed heavy on me. I clearly realized that good training cannot replace a fight. On the 14th of December the audience in the Jahnsportforum and the television networks will see a better Kubrat Pulev. My current preparation is very good, like never before. I'm getting better and better, therefore Williams will pose no problem. After December 14th my full attention in on Wladimir."

Promoter Kalle Sauerland believes: "Pulev has a first class jab. He will show in Neubrandenburg for the umpteenth time, that he belongs with the world leaders in the premier class of boxing. I am convinced that next year Kubrat will finally get his chance to overthrow Wladimir Klitschko!"

The few remaining tickets for the box night in Neubrandenburg are available via the telephone ticket hotline 01806 570044 (€ 0.20/min., mobile prices max € 0.60 per min.), available at the well-known ticket offices and online at

As crappy as Pulev is, he's still done better in 18 fights than just about anyone in the HW division right now. He was supposed to fight in 5 days but his opponent pulled out. Too many duckers.

[QUOTE=joe strong]You don't fight the guy below you then you lose your rank. As i said they could have the top 2 guys fight to find #1 & 3-10 fight elimination style tourney. Getting in the top 10 would require world class wins. I'm sure they could keep a few regional belts to help decide ranking...

[QUOTE=joe strong]I used abdusamov as an example of what could be the end result & he got $40000. I never said he fought them i just said who would want to have 3 fights in a row with a klitschko. HWs make a fraction of what they use to make. Lots of contract talks in the 1700 HW fights i've post...

[QUOTE=Weebler I]and if the guy ahead of you refuses to fight? You're back to relying on corrupt sanctioning bodies taking action. There's no easy answer but unfortunately in addition to Wlad holding 4 titles, Vitali holds the WBC crown and he won't defend it either, getting extension after exte...

[QUOTE=Ravens Fan]Can I ask how many contracts have you actually read? And even if half of it is true the Klit bros are hardly the only ones who have ever conducted business that way. I also believe the reason you hear so much about contracts when it comes to the Klit bros is simply because they ...
