Kubrat Pulev vs. Tony Thompson in the works

By Karl Freitag

After the pullout of Alexander Dimitrenko against IBF #1 rated heavyweight Kubrat “The Cobra” Pulev last week, Sauerland Event was quick to announce “we have an opponent now sorted and all to be revealed very shortly.” Two sources have indicated that the opponent could be #4 Tony “The Tiger” Thompson. One source indicated that both have agreed to terms and Sauerland will announce the fight shortly. IBF Championships Chairman Lindsey Tucker told Fightnews.com that the IBF has not yet approved any fight for Pulev, so there is still work to be done if this is to be an IBF eliminator. The match could land either August 24 in Schwerin (on the Braehmer-Abatangelo card) or on September 14 in Stuttgart (on the Huck-Arslan II card).
