‘Kobrata’ doesn’t want to wait and restrict himself in the line. Instead, he envisions a matchup against WBC titleholder, Tyson Fury, in 2021, after he gets past Anthony Joshua.

He has already shed light on that match, but has his aim fixed at AJ for now. He sees it to be a huge night for himself and wants to become the first heavyweight champion from his nation.

According to NY fights, Pulev has openly talked about his ongoing training camp and future plans, ahead of the high voltage heavyweight thriller. ‘The Cobra’ said, “I feel healthy and happy, I have a lot of energy. After the fight and after the win, I will be really happy. I think after this fight I’m going to fight with Tyson Fury.”

He added, “It will be good. I don’t believe that the Joshua vs. Fury fight is going to happen because I will win on Saturday night. I think the world needs a new World Champion like me. I am the new World Champion. I am coming.”

The 12-rounds main-event clash at the O2 in London will determine the possible future of the division in 2021. There are so many elites standing in line, and Joshua is on the verge of bagging a title unification fight with Fury.

While Pulev desires to dethrone him, it will be a tough job. Joshua is one of the scariest knockout punchers in the division who is on a two-fight long KO drought.

He will clearly try to end it by gaining a stoppage against Pulev, and it is alarming to even speculate on the same. No matter who takes the win, it will be a fan-favorite contest that will have plenty of fireworks in store. So, there’s no way hardcore fans can afford to miss out on it. What do you make of Pulev’s claims?
