Pulev vs. Chisora Purse Bid Pushed Back To 8/27

By Per Ake Persson

With Kubrat Pulev, the reigning EBU heavyweight champion, facing Tony Thompson in a final IBF eliminator on August 24th - the purse bids for Pulev´s mandatory defense against Dereck Chisora is postponed from August 20 to August 27. Chisora is booked to fight an opponent to be announced September 21 and Frank Warren Promotions nursed hope for a EBU title fight for Chisora on that show but it doesn´t seem likely. Pulev is still a long way from getting a shot at the IBF title so keeping the EBU belt seem like a possible option.

Thompson beating Pulev wouldn't effect his EBU status, right? If so, I'd love to see Pulev v. Chisora, so it would be a good reason to root for Thompson to encourage a Pulev vs Chisora showdown.
