  Responding To Tyson Fury’s Recent Remarks, IBF #1 Contender Kubrat Pulev Says He Will Crush Fury Right After He Wins The Heavyweight Championship  
IBF #1-rated heavyweight contender Kubrat “The Cobra” Pulev has responded to former unified WBA, IBF, and WBO (and current Lineal) Heavyweight Champion Tyson Fury’s public claims that he turned down a fight with “The Gypsy King.”

Pulev asserts it is the exact opposite situation, in fact.

“Fury is using me and some other boxers that he knows are currently unavailable for different reasons, just so he can get some PR,” said Pulev. “A few years ago, Fury refused a fight with me and not because he wasn’t available like I am right now. He was available. He was just scared!”

Pop Quiz: Autographed S.O.G. Glove Up For Grabs
 
By William Trillo
If ever there was a microcosm for boxing the last few weeks for The Manly Art of Self Defense would be it. As history tells us boxing can be a topsy turvy world, anything that can happen will. It was literally a “Soup to Nuts” July that has drifted into August now. Any sane boxing aficionado would agree we have a lot more questions than answers right now. That being said I have to wonder what the average boxing fan has to say all this.

With that thought in mind I have put together this surprise little Pop Quiz for y’all to ponder. There is no right or wrong answer so feel free to let your gut feelings be heard. As an added incentive to reply we are randomly selecting one person to win a glove autographed by Andre Ward for answering all the questions.

Simple enough right? So here we go.
