2 Days is normally excellent, though this episode is a little dry. There's the standard "overweight at the weigh-in" drama which we've seen before, but not much else that's too compelling. Watch anyway because, hey, it beats workin'.
Kovalev seems like a pretty normal dude, and the closing interview gives us a glimpse into how fortunate he feels to be living in the United States with some cash in his pocket. It's a good reminder that America is still viewed as a magical place, a promised land, to millions of less fortunate folks around the world.
Kovalev, of course, takes on Blake Caparello this Saturday as part of a triple-header with Rios-TBA and Vargas-Novikov.
