BULGARIA’S Kubrat Pulev might not represent the sexiest fight on the table for Dillian Whyte in 2018, but it may well be his next one and it would certainly be a meaningful one.

A win over Pulev in an IBF title eliminator should deliver Whyte the world heavyweight title shot he has long craved and also throw him back in the mix for a rematch against Anthony Joshua, the only man to defeat him as a professional.

But not so fast.
