Earlier this week, Pulev was asked about his verdict on Joshua ahead of their fight, he then went on to make a controversial comment about his skin colour.

‘His strengths? I’d say he has a very powerful punch undeniably,’ said Pulev during a press conference. 

‘What are his other strengths? His tan is better than mine.’

Pulev has now released a statement after his comment sparked accusations of racism from boxing fans.

I would never, under any circumstances, allow myself to show disrespect to another human being on racial, ethnic or religious grounds,’ the 39-year-old said.

‘If somebody has been offended by my words, I hope they would try to understand exactly what I meant by them and if they cannot understand me, then accept my sincere apology.’
