Kubrat Pulev beats Hughie Fury to earn IBF challenge against Anthony Joshua

Sky Sports | Updated: 2018-10-28 05:48:14

Hughie Fury missed the chance to secure a shot at Anthony Joshua's IBF world heavyweight title, losing to Kubrat Pulev in the final eliminator.

The cousin of Tyson was beaten on a unanimous decision in Sofia on Saturday night, an early cut causing him problems on his way to a brave but disappointing 117-111, 118-110, 115-113 defeat.

Pulev took advantage in front of a sold-out Arena Armeec, to become the governing body's No 1 contender and 'AJ's next mandatory challenger.
