WATCH: Sergey Kovalev calls out 'Adonis Chickenson,' fighters kinda scuffle, sort of

Sergey Kovalev and Adonis Stevenson met up again tonight in Montreal for an in-ring altercation.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Sergey Kovalev brutalized Jean Pascal over seven rounds tonight in Montreal, and made sure after the fight to once again call out Adonis Stevenson, the WBC titleholder in the light heavyweight division, who was seated ringside for the fight.

Kovalev (29-0-1, 26 KO) called Stevenson "Adonis Chickenson," then performed a pretty terrific quacking noise:

Stevenson (27-1, 22 KO) left his ringside seat to respond in person, though it remains to be seen how serious he is about actually fighting Kovalev, or frankly how serious the two sides are about actually working to put together a fight, given the various political roadblocks.

One thing's for sure: Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder did it better a couple of weeks ago.
