HEAVYWEIGHTS be warned: you can’t just accuse Kubrat Pulev of giving you the swerve and expect to get away with it.
Pulev, the number one-ranked heavyweight according to the IBF, was apparently one of a few heavyweights who turned down the chance to fight Tyson Fury on September 14 and should therefore be blamed for the fact Otto Wallin then received the nod. With no other options available, Team Fury were left with no option for to choose the Swede. Or so the story goes.
This, however, is not strictly true, according to Pulev.
