By Yuri Tarantin

WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev (23-0-1, 21KOs) is full focused on his upcoming assignment, a March 29th defense against Cedric Agnew. If Kovalev is successful, he will move another step forward to a unification with WBC champion Adonis Stevenson (23-1, 20KOs), who likely returns on May 24th against Andrzej Fonfara.

Stevenson's team, now with powerful adviser Al Haymon, is still negotiating a multi-fight deal with HBO. The network would like to have both fighters meet each other in the month of September.

"Right now I have my match against Cedric Agnew, and that's the only thing I'm focusing on. And Stevenson, I can only say that if he refuses to fight with me [after I beat Agnew], then he is a coward and not a world champion," Kovalev said.

[QUOTE=kiaba360]I'm looking forward and will be PISSED if it doesn't happen. It seems to me that Haymon is going to try and take Adonis to Showtime so he can fight B-Hop. HBO needs to make sure that Adonis/Kovalev happens before-hand.[/QUOTE] As I said above: Adonis will not fight Kovalev will...

[QUOTE=Ray*]This fight should happen before the end of this year, I like the build up and the fact that both fighters are not too far from each other in terms of name, résumé and star power. The more they get bigger the more it might be difficult to make the fight.[/QUOTE] [QUOTE=FightingWords...

[QUOTE=Ravens Fan]Please post the links. However, if they are not in English or cannot be translated by Google don't bother.[/QUOTE] Those links exist -- I can assure you... It was another thread about that Kovalev interview... But Kovalev was talking to Russians (as I remember) -- and Russian...
