    Has one loss to Wlad and then hasn't fought any top fighters. Why? He's 38 already.

    Pulev's career has as much energy to it as Banks after a fat splif.

    Give Pulev some credit. He defeated the monster that is Hughie Fury.

    A monster...that's not the word I'd use to describe Hughie Fury. A living, breathing sleeping pill seems more appropriate. Guaranteed to have you asleep on the sofa by the end of round one!

    He suffers from poor promotion. Top Rank is reluctant to do business with Matchroom and Haymon.

    Perhaps Pulev should fight Dubois, Warren and Arum are good buddies these days. A Fury-Pulev fight could be made as well.

    He took one look at the blob gobbling up the bodybuilder. And thought, **** that I think I'll stay in Bulgaria and keep fighting those euro bum fighters. Lol

    Found it much safer to stay in Bulgaria and fight euro bums. Didn’t like the taste of the knuckle sandwiches Wlad fed him.

    Politics. Same thing that has hurt any hw fighter not named Joshua, Fury or Wilder.. tricks and bs used by those in power (promoters) to keep the dollars rolling in.

    Why would he take any risks at 38 and lose his mando payday?

    Yeh understand the money angle. The only way Pulev wins a title, is if a miracle occurs. He better practice up on his defense. Better to earn his money fighting for the title without taking an whooping, like Wlad laid on him.

    He'd still be dangerous in a title fight with that heavy jab and toughness, has father time on his heels though.

    Pulev earns very well by doing what he is doing
    He is a huge star in his native land
    Somebody posted an article about how he had coined it in over the years a few months back

    Clearly will push for the cash out title match when there is no more to milk
