Another no name beyond 50 ranked contender is unacceptable.

Ward is still developing and he tested himself at 24 against the best like he said in the qoute. I dont know what point you're trying to make.
I never claimed Pulev wouldn't be better in a few years but he's in his prime now at 31 and he's not getting any younger. Its not for Pulev to expect Wlad to wait around fot him, the fight mightn't even be there for him in a few years and its one of the best fights that can be made for Wlad after his recent run.
Theres no fight out there that can prepare him to fight Wlad and he's not going to gain new skills at this point that can guarantee him a win. As i said , he's not the only contender in line to face Wlad.
Tyson had done it all by 20. People said Garcia wasn't ready to fight Khan.
You might object to the fight getting signed tomorrow but i wouldn't.

A fighter will always be developing , my point was that shouldn't stop them from taking big fights, and most of the time it doesn't.

this one basically:

Which seems to directly contradict this:

But what I am basically saying is that fighters should avoid hurtful, one-sided beatings when they are pre-prime. You Pulev has already reached his prime (although you also say he will continue to improve, which makes me wonder if you know what prime means, and also if you understand that we can't know if his prime has arrived or not until he has retired/become shot?), I wonder which other HW's who have retired you would see as having primed after 17 fights?

Quote:

Done it all? At twenty years? So what? After 20 fights, the issue at hand here, he hadn't even fought a 12 rounder, never mind fought for a world title.

You picked Tyson because you (correctly) thought of him as being a good example for a fighter who peaked quickly, then you try to argue Pulev should be moved along more quickly than him. Tyson was still 27-0 when he fought for a world title. He had ten more fights than Pulev. And he arguably hadn't peaked at that point. Most would say he had to add another seven fights at the highest level before he peaked (versus Spinks, or at least that year).

Regardless, you're way off again. Fighters, every one of them, get better by fighting at the highest level. Pulev can afford to wait a couple of years, just like Price, and he should do it.

I agree with the OP but it seems the Pulev camp wants one more fight before facing Wladimir. So hopefully it's Povetkin next.

I don't see the fight happening. Adamek would want to stay in Jersey and Pulev wouldn't risk being robbed there. Maybe if they staged it in Poland an agreement could be made.

If he's good enough to be a world title holder he's good enough to fight a world title holder. More improvement time shouldn't be an excuse when you are already a champ was my argument. Pulev isn't being groomed into the next big boxing star and if he was a young pup in his early 20's id agree with you.
Only he is to blame for having 17 fights at the age of 31, but he has to chase the big fights now because they aren't going to wait for him and nothing is guaranteed.

He ISN'T a world title holder. He holds the EBU and the IBF international.

Why do you think he's a world-title holder?

Let Povetkin fight him then.

As above.

So what? It's not about blame, it's about the fact that he will be better in five fights - or even three fights - time and might end up diminished after Wlad beats his face in for twelve.

I'd take any of the following:

Arreola
Adamek
Huck
Povetkin
Pulev
Fury
Boytsov

He just mightn't get the opportunity down the line. There is a lot of big names climbing the ladder.
But if Pulev / Povektin materialise's i cant complain about that.

Pulev is rated #1 currently but him vs the Adamek/Cunningham winner is going to be the final IBF eliminator for the mandatory spot so im pretty sure its going to happen. Im assuming they'll hold a purse bid for location and i could see Sauerland outbidding Main Events and the fight being in Germany.

Overall - Pulev is a decent opponent.

But I find this clattering of the next gen by the Klitschkos a bit disturbing, especially when there are a couple of other guys kicking about. Wlad talked about fighting Price next year. In other words, a fighter that has even less experience than Pulev. I don't like to see it.
