Pulev fumes at Whyte, Hearn after fight falls through

  • Dillian Whyte holds the secondary version of the WBC's heavyweight belt

Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev was fuming at Dillian Whyte and his promoter Eddie Hearn on Friday after the announcement that the British boxer would fight recently dethroned WBO Champion Joseph Parker instead of facing him in his native country.

New Zealander Parker lost his WBO crown to Anthony Joshua, now holder of three of the world heavyweight titles, in Cardiff in a blockbuster unification contest in March attended by 80,000 fans at the Principality Stadium.

Whyte's seven fight win streak was capped by a dominant and scary knockout victory over Lucas Browne in March, 2018.

"After Epic Sports won the purse bid for my IBF elimination bout against Dillian Whyte with a bid of $1.5 million, double what Whyte's own promoter, Eddie Hearn [of Matchroom Boxing] bid, I was expecting Whyte and his promoter to run away from the fight, but I didn't expect from them to be such jerks about it", said Pulev of Whyte's decision, as per Boxing Scene.

USA Reaches Agreement with Chinese Telecommunications Co. ZTE
On Tuesday, Commerce Department spokesman James Rockas confirmed that "no definitive agreement [had] been signed by both parties". ZTE will also provide access to a team for a period of 10 years to monitor the company's compliance with US export control laws.

"Outside Joshua-Wilder this is the biggest fight in the heavyweight division.", Hearn said.

"I like challenges and I rise to them, this is a big fight".

Parker, who had been linked to a bout with American Bryant Jennings, said his performance against Joshua proves his worth. "It came out of nowhere - it's not one that we planned".

"Beating Parker should nearly guarantee me a World title shot but let's see". This is a big fight and I'll be training very hard as always.

Trump Wants Russia Back In The G-7
Trudeau, for his part, said Trump's action would hurt American workers as well as Canadians. Other members of the Group of Seven are France, Italy, Japan, Germany and Britain.

"We've both been in with AJ". However, the Whyte fight is a great result for Parker, who was desperate for a high-profile, credible, opponent after his disappointing 12-round defeat to Joshua.

"I'm really happy with how things have things have worked out".

That turns Whyte's attention to the WBC where an eliminator with big-hitting Cuban veteran Luis Ortiz is a fight that would pack monetary punch and see the victor in line to challenge Joshua who is also that organisation's champion.

"He'll be seen as unsafe and a lot of guys are very mouthy and derogatory towards Parker in putting him down like [Tony] Bellew, or like Dillian Whyte", Higgins told Sky Sports in April. I've done enough work.
