perfect chance for fury to grow a pair. he should be in shape, and usually gives his opponents only a couple weeks notice.

Red face Re: Yet another Pulev's opponent pulls out

Unfortunately for Pulev, his tedious - but effective - featherfisted heavyweight style means he is simply not a draw and cannot pay opponents attractive fees.

Chisora had 3 opponents pull out of his last European Title defence including Wach.

But the key point here is Chisora managed to get Pala when Pulev was also trying.

The reason:


Pulev is a tough sell. Everyone knows whiie the Klitschkos are champions he has 0% chance of becoming a World Champion and that aside there is very little to be excited about watching him.

Great chin, great footwork. boring as heck boxer with zero power and not much speed either.

It's not an appealing combo for fans.

I dont agree if you take a look at pulev early fights you will see he got the power he's more aggressive and throw more punches ... He is just playingsafe until he get his chance !

Joey Abell has signed to fight Kubrat Pulev on Dec 14.

Not too bad, considering it's on just 8 days notice.

Decent opponent on such short notice.

Abell is like a white Travis Walker, huge puncher but thats about it.

Sure Ill give you examples:

Adamek pulled out for the mandatory match with Pulev hence refusing to take his chances to fight Wlad. He was followed by Fury, Jennings and a few others

Who wants see to Adamek get savaged by Wlad and he pulled out against Pulev. Not Wlad.

When has Wlad offered Fury a fight. Fury is calling Wlad out right now but Wlad only talks about bottom feeders like Leapai and Boystov.

Fury had to face Pulev in eliminator. Winning would have made him mandatory for Wlad. Fury chickened out. For the last month or so Pulev has been looking for a fight, putting his title (whatever it means) and his mandatory position. Fury could have taken the opportunity a become Wlad's mando. Instead he gave a ****ing drama queen performance.
