Ivaylo Gotsev, manager of Bulgarian heavyweight title contender Kubrat Pulev (28-1-0, 14 KO), said he did not count WBA Super / IBF / WBO champion Briton Anthony Joshua (23-1-0, 22 KO) , a versatile boxer.
“Right now we are only focused on Joshua. You can no doubt call it a mistake not wanting to look at your current opponent. In the 30 years I’ve spent in boxing, I’ve seen this way too many times.
Kubrat had met such fighters before. Anthony is a great fighter, athletic and striking, but he also has drawbacks. It cannot be called universal. And Kubrat will try to avoid his strengths in order to take advantage of his weaknesses, ”Gotsev said.
