Kubrat Pulev and Dereck Chisora held a joint press conference in Sofia on Wednesday prior to their encounter which is scheduled to take place in Hamburg on May 7.

The Bulgarian and British boxers will meet for the vacant European heavyweight title at the Barclaycard Arena.

Pulev expressed regret that the match could not be held in Bulgaria, but shared his hope that one day such a match will be possible to take place in his country.

The executive director of Saeurland said there is a high likelihood that one of the next matches of Pulev will take place on Bulgarian soil.

He shared that Saeurland is planning such a match, which will depend on the outcome of the encounter with Chisora.

The Bulgarian is not bothered by any provocations on the part of his opponent and is confident in his success.

Chisora did not miss the opportunity to demonstrate his provocative style, saying that Pulev continues to box like amateur and is determined to "destroy" him.

The British boxer identified the Bulgarian as a “warrior”, but added that he is not afraid of him.

Chisora has 25 victories out of 30 matches in his professional career.

Pulev has recorded 22 victories in 23 matches, having suffered his only defeat to Wladimir Klitschko in November 2014. Since then, the Bulgarian has won against George Arias from Brazil and Maurice Harris from the USA.
