It’s a big day for Bulgarian sport! Kubrat Pulev opened another new page in Bulgarian boxing when triumphantly won the European title in 91+ category! At the final of the 38th amateur championship on the old continent in UK, The Cobra earned his victory over Denis Sergeev.
After the last gong on the ring in Liverpool the judges were unanimous. Kubrat earned his gold prize with 9:2 in his favor to his Russian oponent.
The European title is a career peak for Bulgaria’s best boxer and he is eager to conquer his new challenge – the start of his professional career which has been a talking subject for a while. It is almost certain that this is Kubrat’s last match with the amateur league and he will be going full steam ahead in his boxing biography.
The gold from Liverpool will be added to his collection of his previous medals – his bronze prizes of the world championship in China 2005 and the European in Plovdiv, as well as “Strandja” in 2002.
