Eddie Hearn confirmed on Thursday that Joshua would defend his titles against the IBF’s mandatory challenger next, with a deal close for a showdown at Tottenham’s Stadium in London.
Fury is fighting Deontay Wilder at the end of this month and gave his verdict on the match-up between Joshua and Pulev.
He told Sirius XM: ‘To be honest with you, Pulev and Joshua are a pair of p****** both of them.
‘Not sure if I can say p**** on the radio, but what the f***.
‘It’s not a fight that’s really interesting to me, Pulev and Joshua.
‘I only [want to] see the big fights and unfortunately for Pulev he’s not part of the scene unless he gatecrashes the party.
‘The fights I [want to] see is me vs Wilder, me vs Joshua and Joshua vs Wilder.
‘That’s it, there’s no other players, the rest of the players are just people trying to gatecrash the heavyweight division.’
Pulev has had to wait for his shot at Joshua after injury forced him to pull out of their contest in 2017.
Joshua has become a three-belt champion since then and will be the favourite against the experienced Bulgarian.
Kubrat has been beaten just once in his pro career, a 2014 knockout defeat to Wladimir Klitschko, and Fury believes the 38-year-old could put up a fight against Joshua.
‘He’s a brave and strong fighter,’ Fury said of Pulev.
‘I haven’t seen too much of Pulev because he hasn’t been out there too much.
‘The things that I have seen, he definitely put up great fights, Klitschko and stuff, I think he’s strong willed, strong minded.’
