Kubrat Pulev is ready to meet his biggest test in Anthony Joshua, with a dream to become the new unified heavyweight champion on December 12th.
The pair will face each other at the O2 in London with 1000 fans in the arena, citing a blockbuster year-ending heavyweight clash for the fans.
While the combat community has already taken sides to the matchup, Pulev fans can seemingly relish as ‘The Cobra’ claims to have pointed mistakes in AJ’s game.
It is no surprise that Joshua enters the fight as the favorite and possibly has more supporters. But the purists are aware of the threat that Pulev brings, touting him as the superior pugilist over the world champion.
Meanwhile, Kubrat Pulev also considers him on the safer side. He believes that the ‘bad sides’ remain and Joshua will showcase that on fight night.
In an interaction with Matchroom Boxing, ‘The Cobra’ shed light on his upcoming opponent, sending fans into a frenzy.
Pulev said, “We see a lot of mistakes from Anthony. A lot of bad side and I think these mistakes, these bad sides stay. And I take and I will be good.”
Anthony Joshua, the unified heavyweight titleholder, has witnessed both sides of being a top-rated champion.…
He added, “For me, it’s important what I do in the ring and how I prepare, how is my strategy, how is my boxing. This is important.”
Anthony Joshua vs Kubrat Pulev- the heavyweight future decider
The matchup holds a lot more in store than just the world titles. If Anthony Joshua wins the fight, he can bag a title unification against WBC champion Tyson Fury. Or else, he might defend his WBO belt against the mandatory challenger in Oleksandr Usyk.
However, Joshua’s defeat can put a quell to those plans. Pulev showcases an alluring pro-record of 28 wins with 1 loss. So, we can never write him off from the title picture.
Irrespective of the results, it is a fan-favorite event and a perfect way to bid 2020 adieu. The entire combat unit is waiting for the contest.
