Kathy Duva - CEO, Main Events - "Finally. There was a time when fighters didn't consider preserving their undefeated records to be paramount to engaging in actual competition. There was a time when undefeated fighters who were heading to the Hall of Fame actually sought out greater and greater challenges as their careers progressed. There was a time when fighters were courageous athletes and not simply cynical businessmen.

The fight will take place in Las Vegas, sponsored by our friends at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino, at the beautiful new T-Mobile Arena. Tickets are available now, they're starting at $155 right now because the box office has already sold out all of the $55 tickets we put on sale. You can only get these tickets at the T-Mobile box office and online through AXS.com. I'm happy to report that tickets at other prices are moving much faster than expected and currently there are very few left at the $755 price point and the $155 price point.

Ukrainian Gvozdyk is a Bronze Olympian with 11-0 fighting Chilemba 24-4 who went 12 rounds with Kovalev in his last fight. This fight is also a sleeper, and would be nice to see how Gvozdyk handles Chilemba comparing to Kovalev.
