Amazing success for the big talent of Bulgarian box – Kubrat Pulev. 23-yeard-old national earned his first medal in his career in the world championships. The CSKA competitor decorated with bronze from the championship in China.
He fought for the third place in his category of 91+ kg in the globe, leaving the fighters from Cuba – Odlanier Solis and Russia – Roman Romanchuk before him. It is also the first victory of the winner of the “Strandja” cup in 2002.
Pulev made no mistakes in the world championship in Miangyang till the semifinals when he had bad luck facing the reining two-time winner and olympic champion in the summer games in Athens 2004 – Solis.
