Sergey Kovalev Inks Promotional Pact With Main Events

TOTOWA, NJ - Up and coming light heavyweight superstar, Sergey Kovalev, 19-01, 17 KO's, has signed a multi-year promotional contract with Main Events.The Kovalev camp and the Main Events team are ecstatic about the deal.

Egis Klimas, Kovalev's manager explained, "We are finally in the right place. I knocked on many doors: Golden Boy, Top Rank, and more; However no one took it seriously that Sergey Kovalev will be the next big champion in his weight division. But Main Events has the same beliefs. They did take us seriously. We signed with them and we are very happy with our decision."
 
Kovalev stated, "This is the most important decision I have made in my professional career. I feel I have made a very good choice by signing with Main Events." He added, "I am ready for my next fight right now. I will fight anyone!" 

Kovalev's commanding ring performance last Friday on NBC Sports Network "Fight Night" against Lionell Thompson created a buzz in the boxing world. He wants to get back in the ring as soon as possible.The undefeated Russian-born boxer has only had two fights go the distance as a professional.

"When Sergey is in the ring, he is simply electrifying," said promoter Kathy Duva of Main Events. "He told us that he will fight absolutely anyone in the light heavyweight division, and after watching his performance on NBC Sports Network on Friday night, I have no doubt that he is ready. We look forward to seeing more fireworks from Kovalev, who will undoubtedly become a force in one of boxing's hottest divisions."

Main Event is a good spot for him, NBC Sports puts on good shows and he can build up a fairly big following that way. I still don't like his long skinny neck though~ I don't think such a neck…

Main Events is a good promotional organization which will keep him active and provide him with the opportunity to win a world title.

Fantastic move by Kovalev. This kid is going to be the next star at LHW. Very crafty, high ring iq, devastating power and he's trained by a former world champ who knows how to get to the top. Shame Campillo…
