Bulgarian challenger Jersey suffers shoulder injury in training
Carlos Takam has replaced Kubrat Pulev as the challenger to world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua on 28 October after a shoulder injury forced the Bulgarian to withdraw.

Pulev had been the mandatory challenger to the IBF and WBA champion but the 36-year-old Bulgarian will miss out on the world title fight in Cardiff after hurting his shoulder while sparring.
The Frenchman Takam, also 36, will replace him with less than two weeks’ notice, meaning Pulev will face a long wait to fight Joshua after also losing his status as mandatory challenger with the IBF.
“It’s difficult for AJ. Having prepared meticulously for the style and height of Pulev, he now faces a completely different style and challenge in Takam,” said Womens Morgan Burnett Jersey Joshua’s promoter, Eddie Hearn. “This hasn’t happened in his career before but he is ready for all comers.
“When the Pulev fight was announced I made a deal with Takam’s team to begin [training] camp and be on standby for this fight. When I called them this evening they were overjoyed and good to go.”
It was reported in Bulgaria that Pulev could yet challenge Joshua in November or December, but Matchroom has already sold more than 70,000 tickets for the scheduled fight at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium. The venue is also committed to hosting the Wales rugby union team’s autumn internationals on http://www.49ersofficialonlineproshop.com/49ers+navorro+bowman+jersey consecutive Saturdays from 11 November to 2 December.
Takam is considered a less challenging opponent for Joshua than the taller Pulev, having previously lost to WBO champion Joseph Parker, Russia’s Alexander Povetkin and the little-known Gregory Tony.
Joshua is planning to fight higher-profile opponents in 2018, when WBC champion Deontay Wilder, Parker and David Haye – should he win his rematch with Tony Bellew in December – will be among his targets.
But just as Leicester seemed to be building some momentum, a sloppy piece of control from Iheanacho on the edge of his own box gifted West Brom a chance to take the lead. The Nigerian brought down Grzegorz Krychowiak 30 yards out, and Chadli’s superb curling free-kick totally deceived Kasper Schmeichel.
Shakespeare had to respond quickly and, to his credit, the decision to switch to a three-man defence as Slimani and Ben Chilwell were introduced from the bench paid dividends. Christian Fuchs’s deep cross to the back post was headed down by Slimani to Mahrez, who did the rest via a brilliant piece of chest control and a powerful right-foot finish.
The change means that http://www.packersnflofficialonlinestore.com/Aaron-Ripkowski-Jersey Gatland will not have to choose two out of Webb, Biggar, Liam Williams, George North, Jamie Roberts, Rhys Priestland and Taulupe Faletau for his World Cup squad and he hopes to persuade Moriarty and the Exeter prop Tomas Francis to sign for a Welsh region when their contracts are up.
“The team is evolving,” said Pulis, whose side http://www.authenticmapleleafsstore.com/-23-brooks-laich-jersey_c-466.html moved back into the top half of the table with Womens Morgan Burnett Jersey this point. “We’ve got better players in the Womens Morgan Burnett Jersey team now than when I started. Leicester threw everything at us in the final 20 minutes and there were times when we could have picked them off but the final pass wasn’t there. We’ve got to do better than that but this a relentless league. We know where we are and what we are trying to do.”
