BoxingScene.com was on hand for a recent media roundtable with WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev in Atlantic City, NJ. The 30-year-old Kovalev spoke on a variety of topics including a potential showdown with WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson. Kovalev is very interested in the fight but Stevenson feels that there are bigger fights out there that can be made.

"I think he understands that I am dangerous in the ring. It is dangerous for me too but I know what I need to do in the ring. That is why he forgot my name (when he said he was interested in facing Bernard Hopkins or Carl Froch after his last fight)," Kovalev stated.

Stevenson is on a short list of candidates for 2013's Fighter of the Year honors. Like Stevenson, Kovalev has also compiled a 4-0 record this year. I asked the Russian if he feels his record stacks up with Stevenson.

"I beat guys like Gabriel Campillo who was a former champion. I viewed him as still a champion. Then I beat Cleverly to become champion. He was undefeated. He defended his belt five times. Stevenson beat Chad Dawson but Dawson wasn't in good shape. He wasn't recovered from getting knocked out by Andre Ward," Kovalev told BoxingScene.com.

I think so as well. Both fought 4 times. But Kovalev has more impressive wins. Stevenson's best win is Dawson, and that was a huge win he won the titles. But Dawson was coming off a brutal beating against Andre Ward where he got knocked down 3 times and then knocked out. But still he had a tit...

[QUOTE=Corap]I agree with you on everything you said except ward getting ko'ed by kov if he doesnt wrestle him. Ward is a very skillfull fighter, and his olympic gold medal proofs that. Kovalev wasnt close to wards level in the amateurs, and if im not misstaken korobov was one of many to keep kov...

Funny to read posts talking up Cloud and Bellew yet talking down the guys that beat them.

I don't think anything of the Dawson win personally. He was clearly done after the draining against Ward.
