Night Of The Champions: Kubrat Pulev vs. Samuel Peter

Night Of The Champions: Kubrat Pulev vs. Samuel Peter

3rd December 2016

Location: Arena Armeec, Sofia

 

Kubrat Pulev (23-1, 12 KOs) will fight for the first time in his home country on December 3 when he faces former World Champion Samuel Peter (36-5, 29 KOs) at the Arena Armeec in Sofia, Bulgaria.

The Bulgarian star returns to action having successfully claimed the European title with a points victory over British boxer Dereck Chisora in May, and now, the 35 year-old can look forward to a long awaited homecoming fight against ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’, as he targets another World title challenge.

‘’I am very happy to get the chance to fight in Bulgaria,’’ said Pulev. ‘’I have been waiting for this moment for a long time. There are many people in Bulgaria who have wanted to watch me fight, but couldn’t afford to travel, so it will give me great pleasure to finally fight in front of my home fans.

‘’Peter is a good fighter and a former World Champion and a dangerous puncher but I believe I am the better boxer. I will train harder than ever, and with the support of the Bulgarian people I am sure I will win in spectacular style!’’

Pulev will face a tough task against the power punching Peter, a former WBC World Champion, who floored Wladimir Klitschko three times during their first fight, and has amassed an impressive record of thirty-six wins including twenty-nine knockouts during his forty-one-fight career.

’This is going to be an explosive fight between two big punching heavyweights,’’ said Peter. ‘’I know that Pulev has a lot of power, but so do I. I’m not planning on leaving the decision in the hands of the judges. I’m coming to Bulgaria to knock him out! I’ve been training hard and I’m ready to take my place at the top of the heavyweight division. Once I’ve beaten Pulev, I want my World title back!''

Said promoter Kalle Sauerland: ‘’We are excited to bring the excitement of big time boxing to Sofia. December 3 will be an historic night for the country with its greatest star on the biggest stage against a true Champion.'’
