Kubrat Pulev parts ways with Sauerland
Kubrat Pulev announced he is no longer promoted by Sauerland in a recent interview.
This comes two months before his October 27 IBF eliminator bout with Hughie Fury.
Here’s what Pulev had to say about being a free fighter:
“Everything happened 10 days ago,” the 37-year-old Pulev, will make his much-anticipated comeback after an absence of a year and a half in Sofia on Oct. 27, said on Thursday. “I paid $150,000 because of the early termination of the contract.”
Recently, and evidently, the tension between Pulev and Sauerland has grown.
The tension only grew as Pulev became frustrated with the progress of negotiations involving the title bout with Anthony Joshua.
Eventually, he pulled out of the fight after sustaining a shoulder injury.
Consequently, his fight with Fury will decide who’ll be the next mandatory challenger for the unified heavyweight champion.
It’ll be interesting to see what Kalle Sauerland has to say regarding this situation.
