Kovalev Annihilated Mohammedi, Further Serving Notice To Stevenson And Others

During the late seventies and the early eighties, the light heavyweight division was one of the baddest blocks in professional boxing. No, that's not the case circa mid-summer 2015. Actually, the division has a few fighters worth keeping an eye on: Adonis Stevenson 26-1 (21), who owns the WBC title and surging contender Artur Beterbiev 9-0 (9). However, the alpha dog in the division is WBA/WBO/IBF title Sergey Kovalev 28-0-1 (25). Until Stevenson proves otherwise. This past weekend Kovalev fought an over-matched challenger and it was...

Danny Garcia Finding Out Winning Isn't Always Enough

There are several ways of determining when a particular fighter is hot, and when he’s not. One of those ways is whether the fighter in question is calling someone else out, or someone is calling him out. If you’re the one petitioning to be granted a shot at someone better-known and more of a box-office draw, you’re probably not as toasty as you’d prefer to be. But if other highly regarded fighters are pleading for you to give them a chance to mix it up for glory and riches, you’re certifiably sizzling. In boxing, the targeted few...

Duva and Michel Dialoguing About Kovalev-Beterbiev

The Sergey Kovalev-Nadjib Mohammedi bout was a bit of a bummer, being that Mo got stopped out early, without being in the fight for a second. We knew he was in tough, but hoped--maybe too optimistically?---that he'd rise to the occasion, summon a warrior reservoir and at least make it grueling for a few moments for Krusher. Not so... But the disappointment turned around a tad when Kovalev promoter Kathy Duva told me Sunday she wanted to make a November fight for Sergey, in Russia, against young bomber Artur Beterbiev. That caught my...

Monday Mashings: Kovalev, Gonzalez and Diaz

“Solid” was the best word to describe the Main Events fight card in Las Vegas. It was the first time I got to see Sergey Kovalev perform in person. It’s difficult to analyze a fighter based on television viewing. Also, several other light heavyweights took center stage on Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. We drove in from Southern California on Saturday morning. Seems several sports tournaments had most of the hotels booked and the prices were incredibly high. One of the best places to watch a boxing card is the...

Takeaways From Mohammedi Trainer and Co-Manager

No, it didn't go to plan. I mean, it sort of did, they knew the kid was in super tough. But his trainer, and his co-manager thought and hoped that Frenchman Nadjib Mohammedi, if he left the ring Saturday night as the loser after fighting Sergey Kovalev, his rep would be burnished, not diminished. As it was, after getting knocked out in round three, Mohammedi basically joins a list of fellas who found out that the Krusher's nickname is applicable and he'll need to get another opportunity to make the impact he hopes he would. Cedric Agnew,...

He's Still Don King

I had dinner with Don King last Thursday night at RedFarm, a trendy Chinese restaurant on the upper west side of Manhattan. King no longer stands astride boxing like a Colossus. In mid-July, Sports Illustrated ran an article about him that was relegated to its annual “where are they now” issue. He’ll be 84 years old on August 20. But King is still in the game. He promotes several fighters, the most promising of whom is Amir Imam. He has rebounded nicely from recent health issues. His weight is down from 285 pounds to a healthier 220....

Better UK 168er, Froch or Calzaghe?

With the recent retirement of British super middleweight Carl Froch, one topic that has received much attention is his standing among former British greats in a division that has produced some of the finest ever champions from these shores. Below I analyse the respective careers of arguably the top two British 168lb legends and give my take on who stands higher in the all-time pantheon. Joe Calzaghe Overview: After bursting on to the world scene with an impressive first title victory, long periods of frustration followed until “The...

AVILA RINGSIDE: Krusher Retains Titles by KO in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS-Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev dominated France’s Nadjib Mohammedi from the opening bell and ended it with a flourish to win by knockout and keep three light heavyweight world titles on Saturday. In the boxing capital of the world, WBA, IBF and WBO champion Kovalev (28-0-1, 25 Kos) displayed his flashing fists and tremendous power in front of a Las Vegas crowd at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. Mohammedi (38-4, 23 Kos) didn’t seem to stand a chance of winning at all. Kovalev may be known for his power but let Mohammedi know...
