    Interview for Bulgarian media

    "Kubrat will shut the mouth of the clown Tyson Fury."

    "When talking about not accepting fights Fury ducked Cuban Robert Alfonso and instead chose Wallin who we saw in Bulgaria how he struggled with Raphael Zumbano."

    Dayum, he went in hard on Fury in our media but he should also speak about Fury's offer to US media.

    Now we know why these fighters rejected Fury and ofc that the likes of Schwartz and Wallin would accept to fight for 1 million.

    This forum should be going in on Fury.

    The way they react to AJ offering fights, offering record purses for fighters yet he gets accused of low balling which is ridiculous.

    It is odd.Obvious to all how fury will fight showcase fights against poor opposition to tick over inbetween big fights.Guess he can do that as he doesn't have any belts so it is different to Joshua in that respect.

    I get the feeling Schwarz was paid to take a dive. They probably offered Pulev's team the same deal and they weren't having it.

    Fury didn't need to pay Schwarz to take a dive. The guy simply had no business fighting at world level. Wallin's prob a similar case. I'd be interested to know what Pulev was offered considering the kiss stealer's greatly inflated opinion of himself and where he stands in the heavyweight division.

    Since when is Fury the money man in the division? If Pulev thinks he can win he should have grabbed he opportunity cos a win gives him the Wilder fight next year for big money as well as a title shot.

    Fury's clearly just fighting easy tune-ups until he gets in another big fight, in the first half of 2020.
    It's probably true that Fury-Wilder 2 will happen in the first half of next year so he's taking no risks and he's working himself back to best form against opponents who they get in cheap.
    It makes completely uninteresting fights for boxing fans but it makes some sense for Fury.

    Fury is good but these fights are obviously not worth watching live, never mind staying up or paying for.

    The "take a dive" offer happens in the dressing room before the fight so the fighter at least appears to have trained and prepared properly.

    Thanks.

    In the article Pulev's manager confirms they rejected the fight as they were waiting for the outcome of the Joshua Ruiz rematch negotiations. He also confirms he met with Arum in Los Angeles.

    "there was an offer," said Іvкуlа Gаtѕоv. "we met with Bob Arum in Los Angeles. At this time we were waiting for the events between the rematch of Ruiz and Joshua."

    I get the feeling that Fury will cancel the Wilder rematch in favor of doing an Off-Broadway play.
