Kubrat Pulev and Bogdan Dinu Ready for Heavyweight Rumble

PhilBoxing.com




Pulev-Dinu and Jessie Magdaleno-Rico Ramos featherweight clash to air LIVE Saturday on ESPN and ESPN Deportes beginning at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT

ENTIRE undercard to stream on ESPN+ beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT

COSTA MESA, Calif. (March 21, 2019) – Top heavyweight contender Kubrat Pulev is ready to make a splash in his U.S. debut.

Pulev (26-1, 13 KOs) will take on Bogdan Dinu (18-1, 14 KOs) in the 10-round main event Saturday evening at The Hangar in Costa Mesa, California.

Pulev-Dinu and the featherweight clash between former world champions Jessie Magdaleno and Rico Ramos will be televised live on ESPN and ESPN Deportes at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT. The entire undercard, including the returns of top 140-pound contender Maxim “Mad Max” Dadashev and rising welterweight Chris van Heerden, will stream live on ESPN+ beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT.

Pulev, who is ranked No. 1 by the IBF, is coming off a unanimous decision win over Hughie Fury. Dinu lost his last bout via fourth-round stoppage to Jarrell Miller and is looking to recharge his career.

Two days before they enter the ring, this is what Pulev and Dinu had to say.

Kubrat Pulev

“Dinu is a hard, tough fighter. We fought in 2007 at a world championship in his home country in Romania. We beat Dinu, but it wasn’t easy. It was a hard fight. He is a busy technical fighter who throws a lot of punches. He gets emotional inside the ring. He is a stand-up fighter, meaning he doesn’t really bend to his left and right. I have to deal with his high volume of punches coming in hard. I need to concentrate at all times in the ring, be focused and then knock him out. I want the knockout real bad. That is all I think about. Me getting my hand raised, looking down at him."

“After this, we want Oscar Rivas. We fought at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. Rivas won that fight in a decision, and it still torments me. I want that fight bad and am asking Top Rank to do it. I saw what Rivas did to Jennings, but Rivas will pay the price for doing what he did to me at the Olympics."

"First, we must deal with — and get rid of — Dinu on Saturday night and move on.”

Bogdan Dinu

On his defeat to Jarrell Miller

"That defeat against Miller was more meaningful than any of my wins. I feel that I jumped in at a very high level and the experience was good for me. If I could box for 12 rounds the way I boxed the first three rounds against Miller, I can beat anyone. I am prepared to do that now."

On what a win would mean for his career

"A win means everything. Pulev is the mandatory challenger in the IBF, and with a win over him, I will be very close to getting my chance to fight for the heavyweight title."

"My camp has gone very well. I am 100 percent prepared, and it will show in my performance on March 23."
