    I don't blame her for being angry and upset. It seems like a lot of fans aren't to happy either.

            Isn't HBO airing Kovalev vs Agnew? How is that a better fight?

            And the Stevenson-Kovalev fight was always gonna be in the fall. It isn't too late for that, even with Stevenson fighting on Showtime in May.

            Everybody should take a deep breath. Stevenson-Kovalev was never meant to happen before the fall, so let's just wait till then before we call it a duck. If Stevenson doesn't fight Kovalev in the fall, then I agree it's a duck. But before that, it's just too early to tell.

              I do hope Stevenson will fight him, on Showtime or HBO. But to say he is ducking before the agreed moment of the fight (in the fall) is premature. If Stevenson beats Fonfara and then signs for a fight in the fall against another nobody, then I'll agree it's a duck, but it isn't abnormal at this point that the Stevenson-Kovalev deal isn't signed. The fall is still a long way ahead.

                I don't say anybody is ducking Kovalev... I only say that nobody wants to fight him to date -- Stevenson, B-Hop, Cloud, Pascal, Ward, you name them...

                  No its not too early to call it a duck. We all saw this coming a mile away. If Stevenson goes to showtime for this fight, he will fight Hopkins next guarenteed its not even a discussion really. Its the fight he wanted all along anyway and there's no way showtime would over pay for this fonfora fight without some goal.

                  Stevenson is literally running to another network to duck
                  A kovalev fight. The only reason it almost happened before was cause they were both hbo fighters. At the earliest we might see the fight sometime in 2015.

                    Obviously Kovalev isn't the first choice for most fighters. He is the worst risk/reward fight in the division. At some point he's gonna have to overpay for an opponent with a name to add to his resume and increase his popularity with casual fans. Then HBO will put more money on the table for his fights and he will be able to get the top names in the division.

                    My first reply was to make people realize the Stevenson-Kovalev fight still wasn't off the table. We're still 6 months away from the planned moment for that fight. Call me an optimist, but I still think the fight will happen.

                      This kind of reasoning may exist only because there are many alphabet belts to date... Remember when there was only one world title...
