Kovalev ready to fight

  • Sky Sports: November 6 2014
Proud new dad Sergey Kovalev isn’t in the mood for any niceties after vowing to ‘kick ass’ when he faces Bernard Hopkins this weekend.

The pair clash in what is one of the most eagerly anticipated fights of the year, with both men putting their world titles on the line when they lock horns in an historic battle at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City this Saturday night, live on BoxNation.  Despite having become a father for the first time, the feared Russian knockout artist has not softened from his characteristic steely disposition and has stated he is prepared to win the fight with Philadelphian Hopkins in any way possible.

“This is a huge fight for me and this is the fight of my life. It's a very important fight. I'm focused on this," said Kovalev. "Yes, my baby was just born and I remember this...

Hopkins could fold to the body punches from Kovalev, 50 years old, catching on.

Agreed, Kovalev looked a different class, controlling the entire fight from start to finish. Hopkins showed a great set of whiskers otherwise he would have been out of there before the mid point. No wonder Adonis doesnt want to go near Kovalev.

hops timed kovalev with about 5 or 6 meaningful punches.

rest of the time he was circling away.

even 7/8 yrs ago i'd have favoured kovalev tbh.

would have been a bit closer.

but kovs takes him.

Great performance by kov.  Hopkins just went into survival mode after getting stunned early.  Shame the big bully didn't take more of a beating.

don't hate groves.

he's just a bit jammy with judges tbh. :D

did want him to win the 1st froch fight.

2nd fight he just behaved like a proper dunce in the build up.

i still say degale is the better fighter.

and given the time he will prove that.

thought he edged the 2011 fight they had (was close admittedly). :rolleyes:
