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 Sportal.bg.

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