Former two-time world heavyweight challenger Kubrat Pulev wants to be back in the ring with the big names, according to his manager Ivaylo Gotsev.
The Bulgarian lost via KO his last fight against Anthony Joshua in December. Gotsev said that “The Cobra” is looking at another British fighter by the name of Dillian Whyte.
Whyte is also coming off a loss. “The Body Snatcher” got rocked by Alexander Povetkin in August and now they are scheduled to meet again in a rematch this February or March.
In the past, Whyte has said on numerous occasions that Pulev isn’t a top tier fighter, but the Bulgarian has said multiple times that Whyte didn’t want to fight him and run away from a potential bout.
“Let’s not forget that right now we stand still in a winning column with Kubrat at 2-1 against top British heavyweights,” said Gotsev. “I’m referring to Chisora and Hughie Fury, so let’s keep the score going,” Gotsev told Sky Sports.
“Certainly one fight of great interest that I think style-wise and personalities would make for a great clash is Kubrat Pulev versus Dillian Whyte, once he deals with Povetkin.
“Dillian Whyte has been very loud in the past talking about Kubrat and Kubrat feels like he is the perfect mouth he wants to shut. That’s a great heavyweight scrap for the future.”
