12 stitches on the face of Kubrat

Kubrat Pulev feels good and can not wait to return home. The huge arcade with which Kubrat Pulev managed to achieve one of the most spectacular victory in his 11-year career in the professional boxing – the one against Bogdan Dinu in Costa Mesa, California, is now fully mastered. The wound over the left eyebrow of the Bulgarian, who recorded his 27th success in his 28th game with the professional, however, had to be sewn with 12 stitches. This happened just after he left the ring in the famous Hangar complex.

Kubrat feels good, happy and is eager to return home, although there is still no clarity, when he and his brother Tervel will come back in Sofia. Bogdan Dinu opened Pulev’s arcade at the beginning of the fourth round, and in the seventh round the battle ended with a knockout after three consecutive knockouts in which Kubrat sent the Romanian on the floor. In critical Rounds 4, 5, 6 and 7 perfect work was done by one of the best cut-man  in the professional boxing – Rudy Hernandez, who managed to quickly shut the arcade in the short rest time after each part.

For the eldest son of the retired Bulgarian heavyweight champion Venko Pulev, this knockout is his 14th in the professional and certainly the most spectacular of the one with whom Kubrat dealt with the Russian maraud Alexander Ustinov in defence of his title the IBF and its European title in 2012.
