We’ve seen Derek Chisora say and do some pretty weird things in the build-up to fights, and now it looks like Kubrat Pulev is trying to match his energy.
Chisora and Pulev are set to face off on July 9 at the O2 arena, six years after they first met in 2016 when the Bulgarian won by split decision in twelve rounds.
Prior to the rematch, the pair engaged in a confrontation arranged by Eddie Hearn, where Chisora came out with an extremely odd analogy, telling Pulev he had a “tough one” for him.
As if trying to outdo themselves, DAZN posted footage on their Twitter page showing Pulev calling Chisora on FaceTime.
Pulev starts the call by shouting before Chisora says, “They gave you my phone number, why?”
“I’m in the gym all the time,” Pulev replied. “All the time for you, I’m in good shape in the gym now. Love seeing you Derek.
Chisora ended the call saying, “I’ll see you soon, don’t worry.” He then hung up.
The Bulgarian opted to end the call the same way he started, shouting, but what he did next came as a surprise.

He proceeds to put the phone in his mouth and shake it while growling like a dog.
As if that wasn’t weird enough, Pulev then starts shouting “DEREK!” at the screen of his phone while punching it repeatedly.
This all happened before we even entered fight week, so we could be in store for the next seven weird days.
