By Luke Furman

According to multiple sources in Russia and the Ukraine, negotiations are ongoing, and a deal is reportedly close, for WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev (22-0-1, 20KOs) to defend his title against Ismayl Sillakh (21-1, 17KOs) on November 30th on HBO.

Sillakh won several high level tournaments as an amateur. He was regarded as one of the most dangerous fighters at his weight until he was shockingly upset by Denis Grachev with an eight round TKO in April 2012. He was dominating Grachev for seven rounds and scored a knockdown in the third, but left himself wide open in the eight and took a big shot that he never recovered from. Sillakh was won four in a row since the upset loss.

Kovalev-Sillakh would be the HBO televised co-feature to Adonis Stevenson defending his WBC light heavyweight title against mandatory challenger Tony Bellew. Both fights will land in a yet to be determined venue in Quebec.

Kovalev vs The Black Russian :boxing::popcorn: good match up for both fighters

comment by TudorMiron, on 10-10-2013
When we talk about KOvalev wins it's not really about who (thought White, Campillo and Cleverly are decent fighters) but more about HOW he did it. He absolutely destroyed those guys. He showed good skiils, good legs and good power. I do think that Ismail may give Sergey some problems because i...

This is a great card. Sillakh is one of the few 175 that can actually beat Kovalev. But im still picking Kovalev
