After Sergey Kovalev's recent fourth round knockout of Light Heavyweight title holder Nathan Cleverly Kovalev has been crowned the new Light Heavyweight Titlest. Now one may wonder what is next for the Russian heavy hitting prospect...well buckle up! Because if Adonis Stevenson successfully defends his Light heavyweight title against Cloud we may just see fantastic match up between two heavy hitters with impressive KO resumes fight against eachother...an event which in my opinion would be worthy of PPV status (although i hope not because i a poor college student) However Adonis Stevenson vs. Sergey Kovalev in a Unification fight would be an incredible match up due to both fighters eminse punching power. But my VERY EARLY prediction of the fight would be Kovalev by late round KO or decision simply because of his superior boxing skills along with his athleticism which i just have not seen from Stevenson so far. With that being said it is also possible although not probable that we could see Kovalev go straight to a fight against Bernanrd Hopkins which i for one would see as an easy win for Kovalev simply because Hopkins, no matter how much we dont want to believe it, is near...very near the end of his fabulous and entertaining career!
That being said i would like to brag that i won 30$ on the Cleverly-Kovalev fight by betting on Kovalev!
Also am curious as to who you think would win:
Adonis Stevenson or Sergey Kovalev
Bernard Hopkins or Sergey Kovalev
Thanks for reading!
