BoxNation/LiveSport presents a light heavyweight championship fight between two undefeated fighters, Nathan Cleverly (26-0, 12 KOs) the current WBO belt holder versus Sergey Kovalev (21-0-1, 19 KOs) the top contender for the title at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff, Wales on August 17.
Welsh boxer Nathan Cleverly is defending his WBO title against one of the most fearsome punchers in the division Sergey Kovalev of Russia. This will be a difficult test for both combatants, and is considered a pick em fight because its a clash of styles. Cleverly is a boxer puncher who isn’t known for devastating one punch power and Kovalev is a smart pressure fighter who will constantly put his punches together breaking down his opponent with powerful combination punches from all angles. The winner of tonight’s WBO light heavyweight championship could move one step closer to a unification bout with boxing legend and IBF champion Bernard Hopkins.
Cleverly vs. Kovalev will be televised live August 17 in the UK on BoxNation and will be available online through live streaming video feed at Livesport.tv
