Boxing News at Five: Pulev won’t fight Joshua in the UK because he wants “level playing field”, tearful Breland was locked out of Wilder’s changing room

ACCORDING to his promoter, Kubrat Pulev, the number one ranked heavyweight with the IBF, is more concerned about fighting in Great Britain than he is fighting Anthony Joshua, the IBF champion.

Pulev, whose sole pro loss came against Wladimir Klitschko in 2014, is next up for Joshua, and has been waiting for his mandated shot at the title for some time now. However, though he is pleased to be on the cusp of landing something he feels he deserves, Pulev is less happy about the prospect of having to travel to the United Kingdom to receive his life-changing payday.

“Anyone talking about an Anthony Joshua fight with Tyson Fury is very premature,” Bob Arum, Pulev’s promoter, told World Boxing News. “Joshua has to fight Pulev and we have a big problem with the site. For Pulev and Joshua, the British Board are not being very co-operative.
