If you’re a hardcore combat sports fan, you have a big decision on your hands come November 2.
Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez will be taking a big risk when he attempts to become a four-weight world champion when he takes on WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev on November 2 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
Mexican superstar Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is very aware of the risk involved, as he moves up in weight by two full divisions to challenge WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev.
Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya, who promotes Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, says a trilogy fight with Gennady Golovkin will indeed take place in 2020.
Sergey Kovalev fittingly finished off Anthony Yarde with a jab Saturday night.
Former unified two division champion, Andre Ward, believes unbeaten Anthony Yarde has a very tough task ahead of him when he faces WBO world champion Sergey Kovalev on Saturday night in Russia.
Anthony Yarde will make the 3,000 mile trip to Russia this weekend to take on Sergey Kovalev for the WBO light heavyweight title.
It’s more likely, according to Bob Arum, that a Canelo Alvarez-Sergey Kovalev fight happens sometime in the winter than next.
If Canelo Alvarez is as adamant about not fighting Gennadiy Golovkin again as she has been led to believe, Kathy Duva considers Sergey Kovalev the perfect opponent for the Mexican superstar’s September 14 return to the ring.
Last month, the World Boxing Organization officially ordered a light heavyweight contest between WBO world champion Sergey Kovalev and undefeated top challenger Anthony Yarde.
