“Pulev’s experienced. He’s 39 now. I’ve learned from facing experienced fighters such as Alexander Povetkin and Wladimir Klitschko that they can still be lively. They can do a lot of damage.
“At that age, the last thing you lose as a heavyweight in your power. He’s got that power.
“I’ve noticed from the analysis that he’s dropped a few guys with the jab. He’s very balanced, so if you attack him and you’re not balanced, then you can fall into his range.
“I’ve got to make sure that my attacks are spot on because he’s very good at punching opponents who make mistakes. “
He’s well experienced as well and has been in there (the ring) with good fighters. He’s got two other things: good work rate, where he’s used to going 12 rounds. The last thing is he’s got a really good body shot as well.
“But the main thing that separates us is the mindset. (It will come down to) who has got a stronger mindset, game plan? Therefore, who is willing to take more and keep going.
“This is a chance to be heavyweight champion of the world. So for me, it’s another fight. But for him, it’s a chance to be world champion, so I’m sure he’s taking this fight seriously.
“I’m really looking forward to it,” he added.
“We see a lot of mistakes from Anthony,” said Pulev. “A lot of bad sides to him. I think these mistakes, and the bad sides, stay. The most important thing is how I perform on Saturday night.
“When I am good, I beat him well. Right now, I feel very good, strong, and powerful. I am very strong, heading into this fight.
