Sergey Kovalev Aims To Impress, Eyes Unification Bouts

By Bill "Two Scoops" Emes

WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev (22-0-1, 20KOs) plans to impress when he faces dangerous challenger Ismayl Sillakh (21-1, 17KOs) at the Pepsi Coliseum in Quebec City, Canada. Kovalev makes the first defense of the title he captured in August from Nathan Cleverly. He wants to make a statement against Sillakh, and then hopes to secure unification bouts against the likes of IBF champion Bernard Hopkins, WBA champion Beibut Shumenov and WBC champion Adonis Stevenson.

"This is very important for me to get a win and get a great win. I want to show the people a very good fight, the people who will spend money on tickets and the people who will be watching on TV, I want to give them a good fight," Kovalev told BoxingScene.com

"This division is more interesting. Hopkins, at 48-years-old, he just got a win over Murat. That would be an amazing fight. I like this fight. Beibut Shumenov, for a long time I haven't seen him in the ring and I'm wondering when he will get in the ring to show what he can do. And then there is Stevenson. Right now Stevenson is very popular. A lot of people want this fight [between me and him] and I want this fight and I hope it can happen in the future."

[QUOTE=MDPopescu;13904252]This would be one of the best fights the sport could provide to date. A true "boxing schools" clash. On one hand, Stevenson is a fine product of Emanuel Steward's school; on the other hand, Kovalev is the "Russian school"…

I'm team #Krusher all day. Even though I'm totally not sold on Superman Stevenson, he is a Kronk gym product so he can box. Clev had some success boxing Krusher Kovalev but he doesn't have the pop. Stevenson may. Kovalev…
