Los Angeles, California - Richard Ballesteros catches up with former junior middleweight world champion Sergio Mora, who gave his take on tonight's WBA/IBF/WBO light heavyweight unification between 49-year-old veteran Bernard Hopkins and dangerous puncher Sergey Kovalev. The HBO televised main event takes place at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
"It's going to be tough. Hopkins always comes through, so you gotta go with Hopkins. You can't go against him. Hopkins by decision. I don't think he'll drop [Kovalev]. I personally think he'll do really well, frustrate him, he's going to win the early rounds ugly, win the late rounds by moving. If he gets caught though, we have to see how he reacts. [Hopkins] has been down, but not by a big puncher like Kovalev," Mora told BoxingScene.com.
