Kubrat Pulev: I see Ruiz winning again

By Przemek Garczarczyk

IBF #1 heavyweight Kubrat Pulev is a VERY interested party in the (hopefully) upcoming Ruiz-Joshua 2 bout, so I decided to ask his opinion about the recent IBF decision and a prediction of what will happen in the ring when Andy and Anthony meet again.

Kubrat Pulev: “I wasn’t all that surprised that the IBF gave the exception for the rematch, but we do want some of the conditions clarified so that we can be sure that the winner will fight me next. I have been waiting for this to happen for over 3 years. I will remain focused and keep getting ready for the winner.

“The rematch is a 50/50 fight, and I see Ruiz winning again. I’m currently in training camp in Las Vegas and feeling that great things are about to happen!”

  • Waiting for 3 years? I believe Pulev pulled out of a fight with AJ back in 2017.

  • How does Pulev see it a 50:50 fight but simultaneous says Ruiz will be the winner? The definition of 50:50 is just that – there is no favorite and it could go either way.

    What Pulev is really saying here is that he is afraid of AJ and would prefer to fight Ruiz.

    • Ridiculous. Pulev wasn’t “afraid” of prime Wlad. He isn’t afraid of AJ either. And after seeing his last fight, he might prefer to fight Joshua!

      • Gutter,

        I agree – Pulev is not afraid of anyone out there. He has fought some of the best opposition and he never had a bad fight so far. What I should have written is that he prefers to fight Ruiz over AJ. I have no doubt about that. Ruiz has many flaws, AJ mostly just a stamina issue, and lack of experience if it comes to certain styles – like Ruiz’s.

        • Ruiz has “many” flaws? I don’t think so. He is very skilled, has speed and power. His skill alone is levels above AJ. The rematch will give us the same outcome.
