HUGHIE FURY ACCEPTS PULEV CLASH

HUGHIE FURY ACCEPTS PULEV CLASH

By Brian Connolly   - @Intuboxing

Hughie Fury has accepted a massive opportunity to fight the brutal Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev in Sofia on October 27th. The only loss on Fury's record was to Joseph Parker back in September 2017. We know the winner of this bout will become mandatory challenger to Joshua's IBF title.

 

Pulev was due to fight Joshua, but having sustained an injury, Povetkin accepted the challenge of Joshua with that fight happening in late September. In his own right Kubrat Pulev is the highest ranked contender in the IBF and knows that victory over Fury will earn him another shot at the world title.

 

Both Dillian Whyte and Jarrell Miller, reportedly turned down this contest so Fury stepped up to the mark, after beating Sam Sexton last time out. This is another big challenge for Fury who is the much younger man, but Hughie is always ready and shows the willing to fight anybody in the world. Team Fury will be prepared as always but with how dangerous Pulev is you feel Hughie needs to take the fight to the Bulgarian.

 

With both fighters boasting a 50% knockout rate this fight surely wont last long and backing either man by stoppage has to be the bet to be placed.
