Today is one of the most important moments of Bulgarian boxing history. Heavyweight Kubrat Pulev (20-0, 11 KO) will challenge the current champion Wladimir Klitschko (62-3, 52 KO). The fight will take place at sold out “O2 World” in Hamburg.
I will be honored to be a commentator of the fight for Bulgarian Nova TV. It’s probably the biggest opportunity of my career as TV announcer. After 10-years of calling the action for different televisions as Eurosport Bulgaria, Nova Sport, Diema, TV+, Film + and TV 7 now I will be a witness of something special.
We know each other with Kubrat Pulev since a long time. I took the first interview he ever gave back in 2001 for the newspaper I worked for – Monitor. He developed as a fine boxer, made great amateur and professional career, and is ready to become a world champion.
Kubrat will give everything to dethrone one of the greatest heavyweight boxers in the history of the sport. Let’s wish him a good luck.
In the last 17 years the World heavyweight boxing champion Wladimir Klitschko has just three losses. The first one was in 1998. In front of his country-mates the Ukrainian was knocked out by the American outsider Ross “The Boss” Puritty.
As you probably know, I am a Bulgarian and a sports journalist. On 6 September 2014 I will travel to Hamburg, Germany, to cover and to commentate for Nova Tv the fight between Wladimir Klitschko and Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev.
This was the reason to contact with Ross “The Boss” Puritty. He was very gentle to give me an interview via phone. The entire story you may read on the most popular boxing news source fightnews.com, where I am contributing from time to time. Just in short:
– Overhand right is the best shot against Wladimir
– Never box with Klitschko, you must fight him
– The stamina and the good chin are essentials
