Light Heavyweight world champion Sergey Kovalev returns to his Russian homeland to defend his IBF, WBA, and WBO Light-Heavyweight titles against Isaac Chilembia on Monday July, 11 at DIVS, Ekaterinburg in Russia live video streamed on BoxNation.
Sergey Kovalev (29-0-1, 26 KOs) is an unbeaten power puncher with many ranking him at the top of the pound for pound list since the retirement of Floyd Mayweather Jr., he has fought the majority of his fights in the USA but is happy to finally defend his championship titles in his homeland in front of Russian fans.
South African boxer Isaac Chilemba (24-3-2, 10 KOs) is a relative unknown to the masses, and another huge underdog opponent for Kovalev. He has a good record but few knockouts, if he can defeat Kovalev he will derail the huge super fight between unbeaten American Andre Ward that is scheduled to take place in November of this year.
Kovalev wants to put on an impressive performance without suffering any cuts, to ensure he is 100 percent healthy for the Ward fight, and Chilemba’s goal is to prove the doubters wrong while capturing the Light Heavyweight belts in the process.
