Bulgarian amateur star Tervel Pulev will make his professional debut on December 3 on the undercard of older brother Kubrat Pulev’s WBA Intercontinental Heavyweight title fight with Samuel Peter at the Arena Armeec in Sofia.
Tervel enters the paid ranks following a hugely successful amateur career, which saw him claim a bronze medal at the London 2012 Olympics and a silver medal at the 2010 European Amateur Championships in Moscow.
The 33 year-old will now be hoping to emulate this success as a professional as he joins brother Kubrat’s historic homecoming show. Tervel will be fighting at the cruiserweight limit against an opponent to be announced shortly.
”I’m looking forward to making my professional debut,’’ he says. ‘’This is going to be a very special occasion, and I’m excited to be fighting alongside my brother as part of this historic event for Bulgarian boxing. I’m training hard and I promise to give the fans a fight to remember. Kubrat and I will make Bulgaria proud with two great victories!”
Promoter Kalle Sauerland welcomed the announcement and says he believes Tervel will be great addition to the show, as he reveals the former amateur star will top a five-fight undercard in support of Kubrat Pulev’s mouth-watering clash with Peter.
‘’We’re delighted to have Tervel fighting on December 3,’’ said Sauerland. ‘’He is a great boxer, like his brother, and will be an exciting addition to the show. His fight will feature on a five-fight undercard before our show stopping main event!’’
