KUBRAT PULEV has vowed to rob Anthony Joshua of his showdown against Tyson Fury by beating him in December.
The Bulgarian, who has also called out Dillian Whyte, is confident AJ will suffer the second defeat of his career.
Pulev has hit out at Joshua for focusing on his fight against Fury – even though he's next in line.
WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO champion AJ is set to fight the Gypsy King twice in 2021.
In an interview via the Betway Insider blog, Pulev claimed it will be him that faces Fury after the December showdown.
When asked about the AJ vs Fury fight, he said: "I'm now next in line for Fury and I think after AJ, I will fight Tyson Fury because Joshua is going to lose and he does not think I'm a big problem – but I will show him really new things."
Pulev also revealed his intentions to fight Whyte as he slated the 32-year-old for talking "bulls***."
Whyte will risk his status as mandatory challenger status when he faces Alexander Povetkin on August 22.
When asked who he expects to win the fight, Pulev said: "I'm 50-50 but I hope Povetkin wins because I know him personally and he's a really good man who does not talk too much.
"On the other hand, Dillian Whyte talks so much bulls***.
"He is always twisting things up and talking bulls***, talking talking, talking too much. I don't like this.
"I want to fight Whyte after I win with AJ, I want to fight with Dillian Whyte and I want to show him a very special KO. I promise him that."
