Duva Not Sure If Kovalev-Alvarez Rematch Will Be Immediate

Duva Not Sure If Kovalev-Alvarez Rematch Will Be Immediate

Kovalev was the more aggressive of the two boxers and was winning the majority of the rounds heading into the final round at the Hard Rock Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Kovalev (32-2-1, 28 KOs), 35, a Russian Federation native living in Los Angeles, hopes a victory will lead to a unification fight so he can begin reclaiming the rest of the belts he lost to Ward.

Middleweight prospect Meiirim Nursultanov (8-0, 7 KOs), who shares trainer Abror Tursunpulatov with Kovalev, made Jonathan Batista (17-15, 10 KOs), 33, of the Dominican Republic, quit after the second round. Oddly enough, the collection of fighters making their way to the ring range from up and coming like Dmitry Bivol to never weres such as J'Leon Love and as far as everything else, it's pretty much the showdown at the last chance saloon. But by the end of the sixth, Alvarez was bleeding from a cut just under his left eye. When Alvarez blasted him with another left-right combination, he went down again and referee David Fields immediately waved off the fight at 2 minutes, 45 seconds.

After the fight, Kovalev was transported to the hospital. Alexander's inability to step on the gas or change gears if things get rough would have been disastrous for him if these two fought in their primes, but I'm more willing to take Alexander's consistency over Berto's desperation come fight night.

"I feel OK. Thank you everyone, thank you very much to all the fans around the world for your support", Kovalev said.

The first knockdown came on a stiff right-hand from Alvarez that landed squarely on Kovalev's face.

German couple convicted of selling son to pedophiles on dark web
In the following months, the court said, the woman organized assaults on a 2-year-old girl she occasionally looked after. He had put pressure on his girlfriend to allow her son to be raped and abused by men they found online, he said.

Still, Kovalev at least behaved like a real fighter by taking on Alvarez, since the light heavyweight champion, Adonis Stevenson, has behaved like anything but. Sergey was dominating and Alvarez came back and stopped him.

In Kovalev's first fight back after the Ward debacles, he knocked out Vyacheslav Shabranskyy in the second round in November to win one of the belts Ward had vacated upon his retirement. "I don't know who my next opponent will be".

It wasn't until the fourth round when Kovalev tried to exert his power, landing several hard punches that tested Alvarez's chin. After all, Alvarez was amid a 13-month layoff because Stevenson hasn't faced him despite being Alvarez his mandatory challenger for some sanctioning organization or another - starting back in 2015 (!) - a reminder that, when convenient for the wallets of the powerful, nobody is really forced to do anything by these fraudulent outfits. Alvarez, who once had surgery on his right hand, found the power in that hand to level Kovalev with a right and send him to the canvas. If he tastes his punch it could be lights out so he has to fight the flawless fight to come home with the belt.

Scores of 120-108, 120-108 and 116-112 went in favour of the incumbent, whose strong performance in the first six rounds helped him to weather a late rally from the Malawian.

Kovalev was leading 59-55 on two cards and 58-56 on a third when Alvarez caught and badly hurt Kovalev with a clean right hand to the head. It looked like Bivol was headed to an early stoppage, but the Russian seemed content with scoring points and controlling bout.
