I think it’s kind of weird that people think Kovalev is like Pavlik, only a big puncher. Either tey know nothing about him at all and are talking from left field or they totally forgot how well rounded he was because he punches so hard and the fights end quick. Don’t be fooled people, this guy has every tool is the big tool box at his disposal. If someone wants to have a technical match he is a very good technical fighter and his punches are fast, accurate and they hurt,…even when he is being a boxer. Most people get lost in thinking he can only punch. This guy is a boxer/puncher. He’s defined as a slugger because he punches so hard when in all actuality this guy is very well rounded. That is a mistake for someone to think he only has a hard shot. I bet he wishes the fighters he fights felt that way, then they would be in even bigger trouble!

Ward wouldn’t beat Kovalev and when he gets KO’d out by Kovalev I’ll be back to remind you. Kovalev is a beast and a damn good boxer. He’ll stop Ward no problem.

Nope. Kovalev is an underrated Boxer who can SPANK you by Boxing or Banging. He’s begging YOU to take YOUR pick.

If Sillakh won’t Stevenson, Ward will. Kovalev = Overrated banger who’s begging to be outboxed.

Nope. Sllikah has a glass chin which is a NO NO vs Kovalev. Kovalev by stoppage.

After they both LOSE to Ward they will become less relevant SO the Fight won’t be as Big anymore just as Froch vs Kessler wasn’t as Big. They need to face each other first to get the Big Ward Fight. The LOSER can still get a rematch after the WINNER loses to Ward.

Posted November 30, 2013 10:03 pm 


FEARS

Bellew looks huge! This is definitely a crash course for Stevenson/Kovalev. They could fight each other next with the winner getting schooled by S.O.G. Ward needs a worthy opponent and he has cleaned his division completely out, therefore he will have to seek and destroy the LHWs now. Another option for Ward would be to fight them both, one at a time before they fight each other. That way he could double the money with 2 for 1, plus they could still fight each other after both lose to Ward.

To Stevenson’s and Kovalev’s credit, I don’t see them avoiding eachother. I see the fight being set up directly after these 2 warriors fight tonight, that is of course, if one or both are not beaten of course.

Posted November 30, 2013 4:38 pm 


Thrashnephilim

I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say that Adonis Stevenson is above other fighters outside of Kovalev by a good margin for the most part. But, I also think that he has tender meat in his chin and Kovalev of all people is not the one you want to get cracked on by with a tender chin. I think the first few shots that land clean will have Stevenson on his bike and maybe make him desperate, that will cause him to do something that will put him in serious danger and ultimately on the canvas. After the fight, Stevenson will not think Fluke or rematch. He will humble himself. Other fighters will come forward and fight the same aggressive way against Stevenson. Depending on the damage mentally that the fight with Kovalev will have imposed, will be the answer to if other fighters beat him that way too because his mental state. This is MERELY my own opinion, I’m not saying I’m A fortune teller, or that my word is the final deal. I’m just saying based off of the things I have seen from both fighters and info that I’ve gathered, this I could see being a common sense outcome.

Thrashnephilim thanks for the details on Bellew. Sounds like while both Kovalev and Stevenson are the A sides of these matches both opponents are good. Still if the A sides are as good as most think they should win clearly. I am presuming both are, and both win by KO. Still not convinced that Stevenson is all that however.

“What’s so good about Kovalev he looks a bit robotic to me. He’s got power sure, but power aint everything.” – You’re not watching closely enough. Watch Kovalev’s feet instead of his hands. He’s always in the proper angle to throw whether he’s on defense or offense. Also see how he improvises some of his combos when the opponent moves to block a punch. Hardly robotic.

Posted November 30, 2013 3:30 pm

Stevenson over Bellow stoppage or wide UD, Kovalev over Sillakh stoppage. If Kovalev ever step in the ring with Ward. It’s Ward by boring UD.

This should be elementary, but both underdogs are live. I can’t erase the memory of Stevenson’s loss in the first match with Darnell Boone. If Boone could get to him, then so can Bellew. It’s at least a possibility. And as devastating as Kovalev’s heavy hands have been, Sillakh had an excellent amateur career and can certainly box. If his chin holds out he could, at least conceivably, outbox Kovalev to a UD. So, yeah, the favorites will probably win and may win easily but I don’t think either fight is necessarily a slam dunk and I’ll be watching both in the hopes of at least seeing some competitiveness and maybe a little drama.

Thrashnephilim knows exactly what he’s talking about, Kovalev is the best light heavy in the world by some distance. I’d like to see Ward step up a weight and take him on, Ward will lose by KO but it would be fun to watch for the short time it lasted. I’d take Kovalev to stop Ward by the 7th round.

Interesting card. Sillakh is not a walk over, if he has improved his defence and survival tactics, he could win on point. He’s a highly skilled technical boxer.

Its great to see 36 year old Adonis Stevenson in the ring to defend his world middleweight title in an active way and I hope he will do that for a time. Of course we all hope Stevenson will fight WBO champ Sergey Kovalev and WBA champ Beibut Shumenov for there respective piece of world title belt. Stevenson should wait a while or best recomended, never fight Bernard Hopkins. Hopkins is an old recognised world champion and a big legend in boxing and that fight could hurt Stevenson more then do good. There are some good opponents out there for Adonis Stevenson like ex champ Jean Pascal, Lucien Bute, Jurgen Brähmer, Andrzej Fonfara, Marcus Oliveira etc so there are some top contenders worth fighting. Or he could challange super middleweight world champions Andre Ward, Carl Froch or Saiko Bika or Robert Stieglitz.

Bellew says he learned alot from the Clev fight,about calming down and not fighting angry and that’s the reason for his only loss.looks like that plan went out the window last night at the weigh in,he knows what’s coming and couldn’t just save it and walk away.The only chance he had was hoping Stevenson took his eye off the ball and took the fight lightly,but now he’s gunning for bellew and he won’t handle it ,Bellew is a tough guy no doubt,but ultimately a very limited fighter,another one who has listend to Eddie Hurn piss up his back that long he genuinely believes he’s that level,he’s going to find out tonight he’s not.

Gr33nFather you clearly don’t understand how good Kovalev is there is no chance that Stevenson will ever beat him. Kovalev is miles better than Stevenson. Stevenson will take a terrible beating from Kovalev IF they ever fight. Remember Stevenson got KO’d by a journeyman with 20 defeats on his record! If ever a fighter was over hyped by one shock win it’s Adonis Stevenson. He’ll beat Bellew because he has too much power for him but Kovalev is a totally different animal and Stevenson will get hammered by him easily. Kovalev is the best light-heavy there has been for a long time.”””””

Dude, you obviously don’t know Stevenson and don’t know what happen in the first Boone fight… it was a terrible stoppage by the referee, good shot from Boone but Stevenson was on his feets… And Boone floored Andre Ward too never forget that.

Anon, Cleverly fought Kovalev. You said “Sillakh is far better than anyone Cleverly has ever fought. Sillakh is not far better, better or even close to Kovalev. He’ll be cracked so hard Saturday night that he may just quit boxing. He’s chinny. Grachev is nothing compared to Kovalev. This fight won’t go past 6 rounds, but hey, Kovalev could use the rounds.

I like the pimp by decision or late stoppage in this one. As for the super fighter Adonis vs Krusher… I like both fighters, because of the punching power of each of them i think it would be a battle of intangibles and durability. I do not Adonis is as slick a boxer as he is now being billed as after the cloud fight. I think the rangier Kovalev is perhaps underrated in his boxing technique. I slightly favor Kovalev. But because both guys are such bangers i would certainly would not mortgage my house to bet either way on that fight. The good thing here, is that the fight will probably happen. And they do not think it needs to “marinate” these guys want to fight. The last marination i waited on was Gamboa vs Juanma. In hindsight it is ridculous that fight was never made.

One last link that can be telling: in April, 2010, Darnell Boone KO’d Adonis Stevenson in round 2 (lucky or unlucky punch, it’s on record, it happened). some level is that in Oct. of 2010, Kovalev Got a split decision win over Darnell Boone. In June 2012, Kovalev fought Boone again, this time Kovalev TKO’d Boone inside 2. Just 9 months later in March 2013, Stevenson stopped Boone in 6. To sum it all up: Stevenson has a KO loss and a 6rd round KO win against Boone. Kovalev has a Split decision win in 8 and a 2 rd. TKO. Both guys fought Darnell Boone 2 times a piece. Consider also that Kovalev is/has been trained by John David Jackson who is known to be highy skilled in the area training fighters against Southpaw styles. Adonis Stevenson,…is a Southpaw. Now, who do you think would win, on top of info you already considered?

Thrashnephilim

Joke, perhaps you can ask the last three fighters that he fought that didn’t make it past the 3-4 rounds. Total combined records of 68-5. Cleverly, White and Campillo. 22 wins 20 by KO. Cleverly was 26-0 and got pounded stupid in 4. His success doesn’t come from only being a hard puncher. He punches fast, super hard and in combinations/barrages. Fighters can’t withstand the onslaught. Even if they try to trade with the heavy handed fighter, his chin is another part of his arsonal the will make their return come back null and void as he lands back and causes massive damage. That, that is why Kovalev is so great. He’s not a Kelly Pavlik type or one trick pony; slow and plodding to land that Sunday punch. He’s fast, he’s accurate, he hits very, very hard and his chin is anchored. A fighter may block the first shot but there will be a 3rd, 4th or more to follow, all of which are very solid, heavy shots. Even the best defense would fade or not be able to fully absorb ongoing assaults like that.

Fight aficionado,Bellow had Cleverly wobbled and in some trouble in round 2. Also, Bellew broke his hand in the Cleverly fight (somewhere around the 5th round). He claims he was fighting angry and going for a KO from round one and that’s how it happened. He said its improved him as a fighter and he would win a rematch for sure. another thing of note is that Stevenson was a super middleweight just over a year ago, and as an Amateur Bellew was Campaigned at heavyweight. It’s been said that with Bellew being formerly and naturally a bigger guy, there could be a big size AND weight advantage for Bellew Saturday night.

Posted November 30, 2013 1:48 am 


Darxide

What little I have seen of Bellow, he seems like an all-round ‘game’ fighter. But not however a future prospect in the same way as Kovalev has shown. Stevenson should beat him comfortably if he is as good as some of the press would have us believe he is. If he doesn’t win in convincing style Stevenson will have a great deal of difficulty convincing the world he can beat Kovalev.

In the Cloud fight, Stevenson showed he is/has become a well-rounded fighter — he really showed off some nice boxing skills. While we all agree a Stevenson vs Kovalev fight must be made, I think it makes for a very competitive fight. I don’t see Kovalev blowing out Stevenson. I think it would be an epic battle with both fighters taking as much as they give out.

i agree walt k you hit it on the nali i guess the best bet is take a chance if u get knockout out then oh well it better then just sitting there taking punches and i know kovalev is well rounded boxer it easy to see that when he fights the way he mix his punches up together to the body and head his jab is good and he got good speed he never depends on his power looking for one shot he throws one two three four shots on you with accuracy that what makes him dangerous as far as him having a granite chin that remains to be seen i never many fighters try to go to his body they so worry about his power of course always got to be aware of a person power but if u worry to much about it and think about it then that going to mess your game plan up but like i said easier said then done

People seem to be suggesting that Kovalev only has power. He won every round v cleverly who is a pretty good boxer with long reach and good skills. Cleverly’s issue was power, but even skillwise he couldn’t hang with Kovalev. This guy is the real deal and ward aside, Kovalev would mince everyone in LH and SM.

Only tidbit I have is that he fought Cleverly (who was highly touted and undefeated until his last fight against Kovalev TKO-4) to a majority dec 12 round loss. So it may in some way be used as a guage to tell where Stevenson is at.

Posted November 29, 2013 5:00 pm

I’ve never seen Bellow and don’t know if he has the boxing skills to challenge Stevenson. anyone have a proper scouting report? Sillakh has good skills and can crack. His problem is if you catch his chin he unravels. Kovalev puts him to sleep.

Posted November 29, 2013 4:37 pm 


ThrashNephilim

Tark said it all. Stevenson in the pic. kinda looks over-confindent. That could mean is is sure this is easy work, or he is overestimating himself. Sillakh looks amped, Bellew looks like he is somewhat confident and Kovalev is,… well stone faced as usual.

Posted November 29, 2013 4:13 pm

@bighead,

When a boxer hits like Kovalev or Stevenson, the opponent is stuck into a catch 22. If he stand to much on the defensive, he will absord too many hard punches and if he open up, he could be striken out.

Posted November 29, 2013 4:00 pm 


big head

it seem like when fighters fight kovalev they scared to open up against him like cleverly was all he was throwing was jabs nothing behind it he wasn going to the body all he was throwing was taking punches that it if sillakh come with that same type of attutitude then he going to get beat the same way but if he come with that confidence attutitude till the point going to take some chances throw more then just a jab and try to go to kovalev body sillakh is a good body puncher put some punches together against him easy said then done but if he can do that then he going to have some success hope sillakh come with that mentaliy while sillakh is a skilled fighter he can crack a lil bit to and he strong he spar with heavyweights and criuserweights before i dont see kovalev overpowering him as some people thinks like i said before only concern is his chin idk how long his chin can hold up to kovalev power but like the old saying u cant hit what u cant see but at some point he going to get hit and kovalev is a good finisher so we see
