Hey, I'm [boxing/free]~ Eleider Alvarez Vs. Sergey Kovalev!

New York, New York


Sergey Kovalev needs a win in a bad way on Saturday night if he is to resurrect his flagging career. "Krusher" is 2-3 in his last five fights, and he will be looking to get back to championship status in his rematch with Eleider Alvarez at the Ford Center at the Star in Frisco, Texas.

Last time out, Alvarez knocked Kovalev down three times in the seventh round to claim a TKO-win and earn the WBO world light heavyweight title he will be putting on the line Saturday. In case you forgot, or haven't seen it yet, here's a quick recap:

Kovalev was the champion in that match and, even with his two losses to Andre Ward not long behind him, still considered one of the most fearsome boxers around. But the undefeated Alvarez knocked Kovalev out of the pantheon, establishing himself as a fighter to be reckoned with in the process.

Kovalev, 35, doesn't have much time left to re-establish himself as a preeminent boxer, and it's possible he won't get a chance at all, win or lose. He faces a felony assault charge from a June 2018 incident, two months before the Alvarez loss, where he allegedly punched a woman in the face.

It wasn't all that long ago Kovalev was the dominant, world-beating force at light heavyweight. The slugger brutalized his opponents, at one point stopping 12 of 13 opponents, the only exception being a decision win against the great Bernard Hopkins. And then came the Ward fights.

Kovalev lost the first fight against Ward in November 2016. He managed to knock Ward down in the second round, only to fade late, allowing Ward to pick up a close unanimous decision that some might argue should've gone to Krusher.
