KubratPulev to upset Anthony Joshua – Bob



By Bombo Ponciano \’John\’ Melo Jr -November 6, 2020 | 10:14 AM

After being out for a year after avenging his first professional defeat against Andy Ruiz Jr., current unified heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua is set to face the challenger KubratPulev on December 12.

Pulev is the IBF mandatory challenger and legendary promoter Bob Arum chooses him to upset the British champion.

The Top Rank Promotions head explained that Joshua was beaten by Ruiz, who is not a heavy hitter. It can clearly remember that Joshua was shocked, so was the boxing world.

During their rematch, Joshua fought safely by keeping his distance from the smaller Ruiz. He was running around the ring until the last bell rang.

It made Arum’s prediction that Joshua is still vulnerable, especially against Pulev, who has shown his power to knock out his opponent.

“So I think Joshua is still vulnerable, and Pulev is a real tough, rugged heavyweight,” he said.

Joshua’s loss means a step farther from the possible undisputed heavyweight showdown against fellow British boxer Tyson Fury.

While a victory could lead to both camps, finalizing the most significant British fight in history.

Fury is also scheduled to fight in December; however, his opponent has yet to be named.

Joshua currently has 23 wins with 21 knockouts and one defeat, while Pulev has 28 wins with 14 knockouts and one defeat.

In terms of age, Joshua is way younger at 31, Pulev is already 39 years old.

Arum said that Pulev could upset Joshua despite the age gap.

Age will play a significant role in their fight. The 39-year old heavyweight would have a hard time if the fight lasted until the 12th round.

He might not last until the last round, especially against Joshua, who can tire him out.

Joshua still has the height advantage as he stands at 6 feet and 6 inches. Pulev is two inches shorter.

With the statistics being laid out, does Arum made a wise prediction about the Joshua-Pulev fight?

Tyson Fury's Dad sets constraints on the AJ-Fury rematch

The “Gypsy King” Tyson Fury (33-0-1) is set to rematch with two-time former unified world heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua (26-3-0) next year but Fury’s dad pushes Joshua vs Wilder first.

Deontay Wilder, “The Bronze Bomber” (43-2-1), former WBC heavyweight champ, is the first American world heavyweight champ since 2007. He defended his title for 10 times.

But, Wilder lost to Fury twice after their trilogy last October 9, 2021 in an eleventh round KO.

John Fury blurted to The Daily Mail that many boxers are ducking Wilder because they are afraid of him. He added that only his son defeated Wilder twice yet he praised the latter’s power.

As of this writing, the said rematch is still unclear however, DAZN reported last September 23, 2023 that promoter Eddie Hearns got an venue offer to stage the fight next year.

Crawford no match to Canelo at 168 – GGG coach



Crawford no match to Canelo at 168 – GGG coach

Gennady Golovkin (GGG) former coach Abel Sanchez presumes that Terrence Crawford is no match to Mexican pound for pound king Canelo Alvarez at 168 lbs.

In an interview by Fight Hub TV last October 9, 2023, GGG coach said that Canelo vs Crawford is laughable.

Sanchez is a Mexican-American trainer and coach of Gennady Golovkin who is the real rival of Canelo.

Undefeated and undisputed welterweight champion Crawford (40 – 0) has defeated his rival Errol Spence jr. last July 29, 2023 but still not enough to win vs Canelo.

It can be recalled that both Crawford and Spence Jr. have been craving to fight the Mexican superstar but to no avail.

When asked if Crawford can win vs Canelo, Sanchez said: “He [Crawford] gets beat. So, in my opinion, that’s not a good fight.”
