That's one of the reasons i like Kovalev and what makes this fight so interesting. Kovalev has good athleticism, footspeed and can throw power punches in combination while up on his toes, he's very light on his feet. An opponents lateral movement won't negate his ability to get off power punches like it does for alot of punchers who are more flat footed like Cloud or Shumenov.
While Campillo is very mobile and has good footwork he is actually slightly flat footed, certainly in comparison to Kovalev, he won't have that advantage in this fight.
