Pulev, who challenged Wladimir Klitschko for the unified heavyweight title in November 2014, moved one step closer to potentially challenging the winner of the upcoming Andy Ruiz Jr.-Anthony Joshua rematch.

After the fight, his message was clear. He wants to fight for the title next. Pulev has now won eight in a row since the Klitschko defeat.

“It’s been eight months from my last fight. I think my opponent was not bad. I respect him. It was a very nice fight.

“I controlled the whole fight, and I was the much better boxer. I showed everyone I’m at the world level, and I must fight the winner of Joshua and Ruiz.”
