Kubrat Pulev has labelled Anthony Joshua "afraid" and a "coward" – and promised to destroy his hopes of an undisputed title fight with Tyson Fury.
Kubrat Pulev is contracted to be Joshua's next opponent in an IBO, IBF, WBA and WBO heavyweight title defence while Deontay Wilder has the right to enforce a third WBC title fight against Fury.
Overseas territories including Saudi Arabia have enquired about hosting a future undisputed title fight between Joshua and Fury, but Pulev insists he will bring those plans crashing down…
You have more experience than Joshua - do you have better ring skills?
Pulev said: I'm way more precise than him as well as a much smarter boxer. And I will beat him. Brutally.
Why do you think Joshua wants home advantage for his fight against you?
Pulev said: I think it is obvious - because he's afraid. I don't see any other reason.
