Pulev vs Boytsov on The Table if Dimitrenko Withdraws?
By Ruslan Chikov
Sources in Germany are indicating that Alexander Dimitrenko (31-1) is likely going to withdraw from a possible fight with Kubrat Pulev (15-0). The EBU ordered both boxers to face each other for the vacant European heavyweight title. Purse bids are scheduled to take place on January 30. If Dimitrenko withdraws, the manuever would allow his Universum stablemate Denis Boytsov (29-0) to step in against Pulev. Boytsov is going to return this Saturday in Hamburg, facing Darnell Wilson (2-13) at the Grand Elysee.
Pulev - Boytsov is a good match also. I'll no regret Pulev - Dimitrenko if it will happen. Injury? I doubt, it's politics.Comment by joe strong on 01-24-2012
i think dimitrenko is still recovering from an injury. i think the pulev\sasha fight was just made by the EU board because dimitrenko had to vacate because of an injury so thats why chisora & helenius fought for the title.…Comment by nomadman on 01-24-2012
Not surprised. Dimitrenko isn't a fighter and never will be.Comment by Hayehammer on 01-24-2012
I give dimitrenko the advice to retire from boxing if he doesnt want to fight any of those guys!Comment by jrosales13 on 01-24-2012
Even though I think Pulev-Dimitrenko is a solid match up. I would prefer a Pulev-Boytsov match up more so anyways.Post a Comment/View More User Comments (6)
