Pulev fumes at Whyte, Hearn after fight falls through


Come the announcement this morning at about 09.15 United Kingdom time - unseasonably early - we got the big fight; Dillian Whyte vs Joseph Parker, CONFIRMED, for July 28th at the O2 Arena.

With the possibility of the first undisputed heavyweight champion since Lennox Lewis if Anthony Joshua vs. Deontay Wilder comes to fruition and Tyson Fury's imminent return to the ring, we're in for some history-making fights among the big boys in the coming years.

"There's a massive incentive for me to wipe him out and show the world that I am ready to be the top man in the division", said Whyte.

"We are planning a big night and a huge card at The O2 on July 28 and I really do take my hat off to Dillian and Joseph for taking on this challenge".

"Beating Parker should nearly guarantee me a World title shot but let's see".

Then rumours swirled about Joseph Parker - who had previously signed to fight Bryant Jennings - but David Higgins, Parker's promoter, refuted these claims as "just hot air".

Like I always say, everyone always thinks they can do this and do that, and when they get in there, they realise this dude is way better than what we think he is.

We are both young, hungry and want to win. However, the Whyte fight is a great result for Parker, who was desperate for a high-profile, credible, opponent after his disappointing 12-round defeat to Joshua.

"Hearn and Whyte did everything they could to avoid fighting me".

"I'm really happy with how things have things have worked out".

The victor of this alleged fight would be the new mandatory challenger to Deontay Wilder's WBC heavyweight championship.

"After Epic Sports won the purse bid for my IBF elimination bout against Dillian Whyte with a bid of $1.5 million, double what Whyte's own promoter, Eddie Hearn [of Matchroom Boxing] bid, I was expecting Whyte and his promoter to run away from the fight, but I didn't expect from them to be such jerks about it", said Pulev of Whyte's decision, as per Boxing Scene.

He had been hoping to get another shot at the world titles by beating Whyte in a fight that was planned to take place in Sofia, Bulgaria.
