The heated confrontation between Anthony Joshua and Kubrat Pulev at yesterday’s weigh-in continued backstage because the Bulgarian roared in AJ’s face.
Joshua went head-to-head along with his opponent on Friday because the Brit prepares to place his heavyweight titles on the road at Wembley Enviornment on Saturday night time – and it kicked off.
AJ informed Pulev and his crew to settle down, however the challenger refused to take this recommendation on board.
They then clashed in a fiery face off which AJ walked away from, solely to return twice as they continued to shout in one another’s faces.
And it seems the disagreement continued backstage.
In beforehand unseen footage, Pulev tells AJ: “Tomorrow shall be a great day for me. I respect you, my good friend. I don’t hate you.
“However I’m a greater boxer.”
The 38-year-old then began beating on his left glove along with his proper hand and belted out a ferocious roar in AJ’s face, which the 31-year-old simply laughed off.
All of it ended on pleasant phrases as they bumped fists and Pulev stated, ‘I such as you, man’ earlier than AJ responded, ‘I’ll see you tomorrow’.
