Hungarian Fucsovics now stands in his way in Sofia after he rallied from behind to beat Matteo Berrettini 5-7, 7-5, 6-3 in the other semi.
Berrettini will be kicking himself, though, after failing to take advantage of a break point in the second set.
Fucsovics is hoping to claim his second career ATP Tout title after winning in Geneva last year.
