Kubrat Pulev's promoter Kalle Sauerland commented on the upcoming battle for the World Boxing Federation's World Cup against Anthony Joshua. Officially, the duel will be announced next week, but it is clear that it will be held at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on October 28th.
"I think Pulev's chances are very good. Against Klitschko was doing very well, but he had a very wrong tactic because he was trying to box better than Klitschko himself. Still, he did well until he was knocked out. Anthony Joshua is a great boxing ambassador, everyone knows his strengths, but everyone knows his weaknesses as well. Against Pulev he will not meet an old and ending sportsman who will allow him to do what he wants. Pulev will not put himself in a situation that he does not control, he will finish it, it is very clear. I am very confident in Pulev's chances. We will obviously make the match in Cardiff and expect a statement next week, "said Saussland, quoted by Daily Star.
The organizers hope that more than 50,000 spectators will gather at the Millennium Stadium - so many were in the stands 10 years ago when the Welsh super-middleweight hero Joe Calzaghe defeated Michel Kessler for the world title.
