The world Boxing champion in the light heavyweight Russian Sergey Kovalev spoke about their feelings before title fight with American Andre ward, which will be held on November 19 in Las Vegas. The fight will be broadcast live on First channel.
“Of course, before this fight I feel more responsibility, because my next opponent Andre ward is an Olympic champion and undefeated boxer in the professional ring. For me, this fact is an element of excitement, and at the same time an additional motivation. But, to be honest, I some supernatural excitement about the approaching battle do not feel” – quoted Kovalev “Cempionatam”.
Champion for the WBA Super, WBO, IBF Kovalev on a professional ring won 30 victories (26 by knockout), once the fight ended in a draw. At the ward, which up to 2015 was a WBA Super champion in the second average weight, no losses and 30 wins (15 KO’s).
We will remind that 33-the summer native of the city of Kopeisk of the Chelyabinsk region Sergey Kovalev since 2012 lives and trains in the US, where in 2009 he began his career as a professional boxer.
“I represent Russia, though Russian-mother to me, except my character, nothing gave. Going out in the colors of the Russian tricolor. My logo “crusher” is also decorated in white, blue and red colors. And the rest closer to the battle view. There are different thoughts and ideas. But the main thing – I’m Russian and will fight for Russia”, – said Kovalev.
