Boxing News at Five: Pulev invites Whyte to Bulgaria, Nery is naughty, and Haye talks Groves and shoulder woes

IF you thought Dillian Whyte was dining out on a gutsy – albeit losing – effort against Anthony Joshua, and an amateur win over the current world heavyweight champion, you’d be wrong. Moreover, if you thought he was about to have it easy en route to a title shot, you’d be wrong on that count, too.

In fact, to do so, to get his opportunity, there’s every chance the Londoner might have to venture to Bulgaria to face Kubrat Pulev, one of the nation’s sporting heroes.

“It is 95 percent sure that this game (against Whyte) will be held in Bulgaria,” Pulev wrote on Facebook today.
