Promoter, Eddie Hearn has opined that his client, Anthony Joshua will “absolutely destroy” Kubrat Pule when they face-off on December 12.
Hearn’s comments come after paying a visit to Joshua at his headquarters in Sheffield on Wednesday, Sky Sports reports.
The Nigerian-British boxer will defend his WBA, IBF and WBO against his mandatory challenger – Pulev, who has defeated Derek Chisora and Hughie Fury since his sole defeat against Wladimir Klitschko, back in 2014.
“I went to see him yesterday, he looked absolutely sensational,” Hearn told Sky Sports.
“He’s moving so well. We know he’s brought in a couple of new trainers with Rob McCracken leading the way.
“He’s learning, he’s punching so hard, so sharp, so fast. I think this is going to be a tough fight against Kubrat Pulev. I also think he is going to absolutely destroy him.
“I think he’s going to break him down, he’s going to dissect him, and he’s going to punish him. I think you’re going to see a statement. I don’t want to put too much pressure on him, but I really do. That’s what I think.
“AJ will always be a relaxed, humble guy, but I really believe having seen the improvement that he’s made, the spite in his punches, I think you’re going to get a thrilling display from Anthony Joshua.”
