WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev (25-0-1, 23KOs) says there is more to his game than the punching power he brings in both hands. He faces WBA/IBF champion Bernard Hopkins in a unification next Saturday night at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.
Hopkins, 49-years-old, has promised to teach the much younger fighter a boxing lesson when they trade punches in their HBO televised main event. The future of Hall of Famer will look to use Kovalev's power and aggression against him in their match.
"I always have bullets in my arsenal. My hands are my weapons. It's my weapon in the ring. Hopkins think that I only have two bullets but I will bring some more," Kovalev said.
"I wanna get some lesson from the professor of boxing. He is old school boxer. I want to get some experience from this fight that can make me better for another fight. I am not going to finish my career after this fight. There will be other fighters that will also be tough and very talented and very hard like a punch machine. I should be ready for everyone in the ring and in life too."
