Sergey Kovalev continues to impress; Jean Pascal shouldn’t plan any trips to Cuba

Nadjib "Irondjib" Mohammedi - The best compliments concerning Sergey "The Krusher" Kovalev come from a very knowledgeable source.  A fighter could not ask for a more creditable person.  It's none other than Bernard "The Alien" Hopkins.  The boxing hall of fame just wishes he would retire so they can induct him into a place of honor.  He's fought them all, done it all, and knows it all.  When he speaks we listen, even if he sometimes rambles and gets off track.  When it comes to The Krusher, Bernard doesn't roam or traipse off target a bit.  Without hesitation he described The Krusher in simple, but glowing terms.

Kovalev Hammers Mohammedi to Retain Position as Stevenson’s No.1 Contender

Nadjib "Irondjib" Mohammedi - Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev utilised his trademark, ruthless efficiency, to KO unranked (not rated within the Transnational Boxing Rankings top ten) opponent Nadjib Mohammedi in the third round last night at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, Las Vegas.

Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev utilised his trademark, ruthless efficiency, to KO unranked (not rated within the Transnational Boxing Rankings top ten) opponent Nadjib Mohammedi in the third round last night at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, Las Vegas.

The Russian, who entered the ring looking like a good sized cruiserweight, started patiently, firing a few hard jabs and right crosses in the opening round. Nadjib’s brave attacks at the beginning of the second merely helped focus Kovalev’s work, as Sergey immediately retaliated with cranked up potency in his own punches. A hard right cross, followed by a jab, right cross, and a clubbing right hook, sent Mohammedi to the canvas mid-way through the round.

With thirty nine seconds remaining in round three, Sergey threw a right-lead, trailed by a left hand, the latter of which connected with his opponent’s left orbit. Neither appeared to be thrown with maximum force, but such is the exceptional power that Kovalev possesses, this was enough to end the contest – Mohammedi crumpled to the floor for the final time.
