Pulev, OPI 2000 honored by EBU as European fighter, promoter of the year

Heavyweight Kubrat Pulev (17-0, 9 KOs) is EBU’s Champion of the Year. The European Boxing Union honored its heavyweight champion due to his dominant outings inside the ring during 2012, bringing him close to a world title shot in the not so distant future. The prestigious award was presented to the 32-year-old at the Union’s annual general meeting this Saturday, which is currently held in Vienna, Austria. “I am very happy to receive this award,” said Pulev who was present. “The EBU is a long-standing and renowned association and I am proud to be its heavyweight champion.”


Italian promotional outfit OPI 2000 (Salvatore and Christian Cherchi) has been nominated yesterday at the EBU convention in Wien, Austria as European Boxing Promoter of the Year. “It is such an honor to be European Promoter of the Year since we dont have a big TV deal like the other promoters in Europe,” says Salvatore Cherchi President of OPI 2000. “We are also one of the oldest companies of the World since OPI has been founded in 1982.”
