- Kubrat Pulev is due to take on heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua in December
- The Bulgarian professional boxer has claimed that Joshua is afraid to fight outside London
- Pulev adds that although Joshua is good, he has spotted weaknesses in him
Kubrat Pulev has continued to taunt Anthony ahead of their possible December 5 bout saying the Brit boxer is scared to fight outside of London, SunSport reports.
The Bulgarian boxer branded Joshua who is of a Nigerian descent as ‘arrogant’, citing deficiencies in the tactics of the champion as he claims he will take advantage of when they meet.
In a recent interview with Betway Insider blog, Pulev claimed Joshua is always too slow to agree a date for their fight.
"We have one heavyweight champion (Joshua) and he is too slow all the time to agree a date.: he started.
“December 5th is what we've heard and I hear London is favourite to host.
“We think London because maybe he is scared and he wants to fight there.
“But I see a lot of problems in his style and his boxing and I think I can use every small opening and I can beat him."
Both boxers had an initial fight date in 2017, Pulev withdrew himself out of the encounter citing 'strained pectoral muscle 'before Joshua went on to fight and then consequently defeat Carlos Takam instead.
AJ was furious with Pulev’s decision to pull out of the fight with the him claiming he would have gone ahead if it was him.
However Pulev stated that he also had to pull out because not everything was black and white as at that time. He said he is now fit and raring to go.

It was gathered that the 54-year-old is taking the comeback very seriously and he has continued to share images and videos of himself during heated training sessions.
