Australian-based boxing journalist Anthony Cocks has been covering the sport for over 15 years for various print and online publications. He refuses to believe that Roberto Duran ever lost to Tommy Hearns and says that Jeff Fenech would destroy Chuck Norris, Bruce Lee and Muhammad Ali on the same night.

IBF number five heavyweight contender Hughie Fury 21-1 (11) is due to arrive in Sofia, Bulgaria on Saturday ahead of his 12-round elimination bout against Kubrat ‘The Cobra’ Pulev 25-1 (13) at the Arena Armeec in Pulev’s hometown of Sofia on October 27.

The winner of the bout will be in line to face unified champion Anthony Joshua 22-0 (21).

“I made a promise to beat Pulev in his own backyard and that’s what I’m going to do,” said Fury, 24. “Nobody else wanted this tough fight. That’s because they’re not future champions. I know what it takes and what you have to do to become the man. I don’t care if I fight Pulev in his own house. He’s in my way of what I want, and he’s got to go.”

Fury, the current British heavyweight champion, says he has been training twice a day, six days a week for up to three hours per session at the Manchester Gym with his father and trainer Peter Fury.

“It will all be worth it when my hand is raised,” he continued. “There are no holes in my game right now. I’m at the top of my craft and once Pulev is eliminated, I’ll be coming for Anthony Joshua. He looked vulnerable in his last fight. I’m the one who will capitalize on those vulnerabilities!”

The 37-year-old Pulev is no easy mark. The former two-time European champion’s only career loss was to undisputed heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko in 2014. Britain’s Dillian Whyte and Americans Jarrell Miller and Dominic Breazeale all declined to face Pulev before Fury accepted.

“After I walk right into Pulev’s hometown and take him out, something no other heavyweight would even dare to try, everyone is going to be talking about me and Anthony Joshua,” said Fury. “I can’t wait to get this job done and move on to the world championship.”
