KUBRAT PULEV has revealed that he will fight his eliminator for the IBF heavyweight title against Britain’s Hughie Fury in Bulgaria.

Pulev was due to challenge unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua in October of last year, only for an injury to rule him out. He has been trying to fight his way back into contention but could not secure fights with Dillian Whyte or Jarrell Miller.

“Two have refused so far – Whyte and Miller, but Fury has already said no problem and he will play,” Pulev told  Reuters. “The date is clear – October 27, the fight will be in Sofia.
