  • Can Kovalev win a title at Cruiserweight?

    I genuinely think he’d still knock Makabu out.

    I thought he looked pretty good all things considered last night.

    I want to see him again against a better opponent. He must fight more often as he himself said.

    If anything, he looked a little unstable sometimes, but this has probably to do with regaining instinctive composure and timing after such a long layoff.

      Tervel Pulev is a horrible opponent. We need to see Kovalev in there with someone close to the top 15 before we even begin to speculate.

        he could beat Makabu (who is very shopworn at this point) but he was reacting very badly to whenever Pulev actually landed something clean.

          I honestly doubt he does much
          Even if he does beat Makabu it’ll be a short term loan
          And we all know where Makabu stands in our minds

            If he beats Makabu, it's by decision imo, which is very possible at this point, maybe even likely. Still think there would be a good chance of Makabu clipping Kovalev and knocking him out. I expect Kovalev to suffer a KO defeat within his next 3 fights

              He can, there are no great fighters around. Some French nobody has WBA title. The dude hasn`t fought for the last two years.

                Have you ever watched Goulamirian mate? I think he’s pretty good tbh. Not justifying the WBA’s bullsh** rankings or title policy but I do think Goulamirian is a decent fighter to say the least.

                  Wlodarczyk would be a decent test. Both at a similar age too.

                    I don’t see Kovalev having a prolonged run either. He’s probably one KO loss away from retirement.
