Pulev: I'll Beat Adamek, I'll Be a Threat To Klitschko


The situation with staging a final IBF heavyweight eliminator between former two-division champion Tomasz Adamek (48-2, 29 KOs) and a current EBU titleholder Kubrat Pulev (17-0, 9 KOs) is still unclear. According to previous reports, the fight can possibly happen in Poland either in late March or early April, but sources in Germany state that the bout may take place no sooner than in May.

Anyway, Pulev doesn’t play around and he has been working for few weeks in the gym in Hamburg, Germany, under the watchful eye of his trainer, Otto Ramin.

“Before I face Klitschko, I have to fight a though bout with Tomasz Adamek. There's absolutely no chance I’ll underrate him. Adamek is a small heavyweight, I guess he weighs no more than 100 kilos [220 pounds], but he is technically gifted and he’s a good counterpuncher. However, I’m a lot bigger, powerful and very fast and I think I’ll beat him. I still don’t know when this fight take place, but I have been training very hard and I'm already in great shape. I'll be well-prepared,” Pulev said to Bulgarian media.

The unbeaten Bulgarian realizes that the win over Adamek will give him an opportunity to face the heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko (59-3, 50 KOs).

“Facing Wladimir Klitschko is my main goal. I have many assets which I can use against him – vision, quick footwork, strenght. If I link all these factors together, I’ll be a threat to Wladimir. What would I say to Klitschko if I’d meet him now? I’d say that I’m coming for him. Slowly, but surely I’m coming”.

Kubrat hasnt really impressed me. His Kos look like exhaustion stoppages... not a one punch guy like Price or Haye.

[QUOTE=WladimirK;12988915]He is a 'realist', unlike a twat Haye who's running his dirty mouth and delivers [B]f[/B]uck all. See what im saying?[/QUOTE] If he's a realist, what's the point of fighting Wladimir? With that attitude, he might as well not bother.…

I really like Pulev. Hope he gets his chance to fight Wlad.
