Kubrat Pulev's defense of the EBU heavyweight title, that is also is a final IBF eliminator against Tyson Fury, might be heading to purse bids and the EBU have set May 28 at noon as deadline. It was announced by the EBU on May 3 that parties - Sauerland and Hennessy Sports - had agreed but apparently there was more to discuss and thus we might get purse bids.
Pulev, 17-0, has been inactive since knocking out Alexander Ustinov in September of last year while waiting for the fog to clear on the IBF eliminators.
Fury, 21-0, knocked out Steve Cunningham April 20 in a IBF eliminator for the # 2 spot in the ratings.
