Kathy Duva, promoter of the former world champion light heavyweight Sergey Kovalev (32-3-1, 28 KO’s), said that the revenge of the Russians against the winner of the WBO Eleider Alvarez (24-0, 12 KO’s) will take place despite the scandal surrounding Kovalev:
“The fight is out of danger. Sergey will clear his name in court.”
Kovalev is accused of beating women. He faces 4 years in prison. The rematch against Alvarez will take place on 2 February.
