Seems like a 50/50 fight, Pulev could clinch his way to a boring decision but he could get clipped and taken out they both arent that impressive

Well, at least Kownacki's exciting to watch.

But his defense is literally non-existant, and his conditioning sucks.

I haven't followed much Pulev in recent years, but I bet he can still bang. (IMO he's got more power than his record would indicate.)
I wouldn't be surprised to see him KTFO Kownacki in the middle rounds.

I don't think Pulev has a bad chin, and I damn sure don't think it'd be Kownacki that will test it.

I don't want the belts being split again like when Fury vacated and Martin got lucky and thus Joshua got lucky lol, this will annoy me if it's for a title. But i have the Pole winning a close but controversial decision in this one.
 
Pulev is pretty durable. He took too much punishment against Klitsch, but took it for a solid five rounds? Kownacki is fantastic to watch, but his lack of defensive could unravel him. Going with the old hands on this one.

Happy with either.

I, and most others, have been saying for months that we probably get Joshua - Pulev, and Usyk - Parker next year. Makes the most sense for Joshua, and for Matchroom.
