By James Slater – “I’m ready now for a title shot. If my promoters give me this chance, I will undoubtedly accept it,” unbeaten heavyweight contender Alexander Ustinov, 27-0(21).
“Of course it is my dream to become world champion one day, and I’m confident my chance will come,” unbeaten heavyweight contender Kubrat Pulev, 16-0(8).
An interesting and significant heavyweight clash between two highly ranked, unbeaten contenders will take place in Hamburg, Germany on September 29th. 35-year-old, 6’7.5” giant Alexander Ustinov of Russia will face 31-year-old Bulgarian Kubrat Pulev, himself no small heavyweight at a little above 6’4.” The fight will be an IBF eliminator, and the idea is that the winner will go on to give reigning IBF heavyweight king Wladimir Klitschko (who of course also holds The Ring Magazine belt, and the WBA, WBO, IBO straps) a good challenge.
