Fight Report


Heavyweight Kubrat Pulev (26-1, 13 KOs) moved into pole position for a shot a the IBF title with a decision win over Hughie Fury (21-2, 11 KOs) at the Arena Armeec in Sofia, Bulgaria.

The fight wasn’t aesthetically pleasing with a lot of holding throughout but Pulev was adjudged to have landed the cleaner shots whilst generally in control for the duration. There was however a sticky moment for the former titleholder in the eighth where Fury managed to land a right hand that momentarily rocked him but Pulev soon shook off the after effects and made sure to send his fans home happy as the judges scored the contest 117-111, 118-110, 115-113.

I've been in the boxing industry for over 16 years but been a fan for almost double that figure. I'm the proud owner of TopClassBoxing which continues to go from strength to strength as we strive to give fight fans a voice to be heard amongst the community. I've also had several articles published by reputable magazines and you can usually catch me around ringside.
