Promoter Kathy Duva of Main Events, who handles WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev (23-0-1, 21KOs), is confident a deal will get reached for an HBO televised unification with WBC kingpin Adonis Stevenson (23-1, 20KOs). Fans have been clamoring for the fight with HBO doing their part by showcasing the two fighters on several dates last year. The fight is going to happen this year, says Duva. As both boxers are going to fight in the first half of 2014, their inevitable showdown is probably going to happen around the fall.

"We have actually been negotiating very seriously in the last days, hours even. The fight is going to get made.....just not next. The negotiations are ongoing with the people from Montreal and HBO. We are talking. I've been involved in a lot of big deals in my life. I can tell when something is going to work and not going to work, and it's going to work," Duva told BoxingScene.com.

Kovalev's return is being targeted for March 29th in Atlantic City. One possible opponent being discussed is undefeated Cedric Agnew (26-0, 13KOs). Stevenson appears set for May 24th at the Bell Centre in Montreal, against Andrzej Fonfara (25-2, 15KOs) of Poland.

Observer, I don't where you got your degree in Russian but your post is totally wrong. You need to go back to school. What I wrote earlier is the correct Russian to English translation of what Kovalev said and all the words he said. Please don't post lies to boxingscene. Facts are facts.

[QUOTE=hitking]Kovalev isn't on Ward's level. Not even close really. Probably would have his hands full with Hopkins. Probably loses 9-10rds against Ward. Still don't understand why fight fans fall in love with every guy that comes along that can hit hard.[/QUOTE] I have the same problem. The M...

I wish I could broadcast my post to all the boxing fans out there. I am a Russian speaker and read all the comments that made up the stir right from the start. All Kovalev said (translated into politically correct language) in reply to an interviewer telling him that a black fighter is dismissi...
