What has been said?

“I want to say to Derek: I have respect for him,” Pulev has said.

“He always takes difficult opponents like me and his last three fights, and he’s not scared to fight with anybody.

“I take this fight because I’m ready. My last fight against Jerry Forrest was a similar style to Derek Chisora, it was like one big sparring [session] for me.

“He didn’t hurt me, he couldn’t do a lot against me, and I just won easily.

“Derek is a difficult opponent. My fight against Joshua here in London, I was not prepared… no sparring, nothing. Before that I had Covid.

“I’m a very good boxer, technically I’m amazing, conditioning, also. I have everything.”

Chisora said: “This guy’s strategy with AJ didn’t really work out well, did it?”

“I sell a product, and that product is war. Come July 9, it’s gonna be Round 13 – where we left off.

“I’m gonna eat his leather, and I’m gonna deliver my leather.

“I’ll stop him. I guarantee I’ll stop him.”
