”Kubrat remains one of the best heavyweights in world and we’re delighted that he has decided to extend his contract,” said promoter Kalle Sauerland, who guided the 33 year-old to a world title challenge in November last year.
”The fight against Klitschko may have come a little too early after only twenty professional bouts, but will prove to be a huge learning experience for him. I’m confident he will return better and stronger than ever. It’s only a matter of time before he gets a second shot at the world title and this time he will take it!”
”I’m very happy to extend my agreement with Team Sauerland,” said Pulev. ”With their support I will be able to get back to my best. Together we will conquer the world!”
As he prepares for a return to world title contention, Pulev will now train with renowned German coach Ulli Wegner. ”I’m looking forward to working with Mr Wegner,” said the Cobra. ”He is one of the best in the business and his experience will be priceless in my quest to become world champion.”
