Materials about the fight
“We all haven’t seen Kovalev for a long time and we understand that in light heavyweight he is the coolest boxer in his weight. But what it will look like now is a finger to the sky. If he enters the ring, then he must look good. And I hope he will be in good shape. While we do not understand how he will box at this weight. I think it will be a competitive fight anyway,” said Grigory Drozd in a conversation with the correspondent of the “Championship” Yevgeny Narizhny.
“It all depends on how he spent all this time, what he did. If he prepared, trained, if he is motivated… He has a Soviet boxing school. And the base that he has, it certainly has not gone away. The main thing is that he has been training for the last few months, ”said Vyacheslav Vasilevsky in an interview with the correspondent of the Championship, Yevgeny Narizhny.
