James DeGale faces Lucian Bute in the Showtime main event later this evening, but something else interesting is happening at Centre Videotron in Quebec City: Adonis Stevenson and Sergey Kovalev are both in attendance, and met up in the audience.
Look who stopped by! @KrusherKovalev wanted to make a deal man-to-man but Adonis needs to talk to Al Haymon first... pic.twitter.com/NI6r2VItfL— Main Events (@Main_Events) November 29, 2015
This is certainly more interesting than more of the same Twitter trash talk. Stevenson (27-1, 22 KO) was recently stripped of his RING Magazine world championship for subpar opposition, but does still hold the WBC title. Kovalev (28-0-1, 25 KO) holds the WBA, WBO, and IBF belts, and is widely considered the top dog at 175 pounds.
The fight is also definitely the biggest out there for both men, but is still potentially difficult to make, with Stevenson under the Al Haymon banner and Kovalev signed to HBO. But maybe this is a step. Or maybe it's just a photo.
