Team Pulev Expect a Very Tough Figh With Dimitrenko

By Luke Furman

A very interesting fight takes place on May 5th in Erfurt. Sauerland Event will present a huge event with several key fights - including a cruiserweight rematch between Marco Huck and Ola Afolabi in the main event.

The undercard is going to feature a heavyweight battle for the vacant European title between unbeaten prospect Kubrat Pulev (15-0, 7 KOs) and the more experienced Alexander Dimitrenko (32-1, 21 KOs).

"In 2008 I was the amateur champion of Europe, now but I want to get this title as a pro. Dimitrenko is a very strong opponent, but I will do my best to achieve success. For me it's a great opportunity," Pulev said.

Pulev's trainer, Otto Ramin, expects a very tough challenge, but expects victory.

"Dimitrenko had a long layoff and I really want to see if he remained strong [with all of the time off]. He will certainly be well prepared. Kubrat can overcome him [by using his abilities and speed in the ring]. He first needs to neutralize the jab of Dimitrenko," he said.
