Default Thoughts on Ustinov, and him vs Pulev?

Both undefeated. Pulev is good at everything but great at nothing (at least that was my impression last year). Never seen Ustinov, does he have a shot here?

No. Ustinov is a fat kickboxer who didn't look comfortable against C level guys like Gavern and Sprott. Pulev schools him, wide UD or late KO.

I think Ustinov is going to be outmanuevered by Pulev. Pulev is far more agile and mobile than Ustinov. Ustinov has a puncher's chance but I agree with the preceeding post. It's probably going to remind me of when a bull strayed out of the pasture and my friends two Rottweilers took care of it.

I think this will prove a tight fight at first with the rounds pretty even at first. Pulev with the edge techingue wise using the nice jab of his to keep The Iron Chinned KO Machine at bay, but as always Pulev's lack of activitey will keep Ustinov well within these opening rounds. Ustinov with his sheer brute force and chin will be attempting to walk Pulev down throughout the fight and he will have mixed success with this early on. The fight remains tight going into 11th round then WALLOP! Ustinov has put Pulev down, he's back up at the count of 8! But is looking unsteady. BANG, BANG! Nice one two from Ustinov here as he puts the Bulgar down again. Pulev's up! Only 24 seconds lift to survive! Like a beastly bull seeing red Ustinov is in there after him. He's banging to the body, banging to the head, left right, left right, I DON'T THINK HE'S GOING TO SURVIVE. 10 SECONDS TO GO. pULEV'S CORNER THROW IN THE TOWEL!!!!!!! AND THE NEW EUROPEAN CHAMPION, ALEXANDER USTINOV!!!!!!

IMO Pulev will win by UD and in rounds 8-4 or 7-5. Pulev is too skilled and fast for Ustinov. Though Ustinov's size and physique can give some problems to Pulev.

One thing that has not been mentioned is that Pulev, although far better, tends to fight to the level of his opponents- meaning that he will probably win a closer-than-need-be stinker.

Think this is an ok fight, I note that the bookies have Pulev is big favourite with them. You can get 7/2 (3 and a half to one) on Ustinov. That appears to big to me as many have said Pulev does things well but not great and he does tend to fight to the level of opposition and Ustinov bangs a little and is very big to fend off all night.
