Bulgaria’s heavyweight boxer Kubrat Pulev will fight Joey Abell of the United States on December 14 in Neubrandenburg, Germany.

On Friday, Sherman Williams pulled out of the match against Pulev due to injury, just a week before the event.

Abell has a career record of 29 wins and 6 losses. Meanwhile, Pulev is still undefeated in professional boxing.

The Bulgarian claims he is well prepared for the fight, and regardless of expecting a different opponent, the change in the last moment will not affect his strategy, reports

Pulev has been long awaiting a fight against world super-champion Wladimir Klitschko, which looks likely to happen in 2014.

Getouttahere! Abell is only called "Ice" because of the number of ice-packs he needs to stick on his ugly mug! When Pulev has finished with him, "Ice" will wish he'd been back in the ring with an "easy" opponent like Arreola - at least HE took Abell out quickly and cleanly to end the poor sap's suffering.... ;)

He better KO this joker! If he doesnt stop him early, he should forget about the Klitschko's!
