CARDIFF, WALES – In devastating fashion Sergey Kovalev took the WBO Light Heavyweight Championship belt from Nathan Cleverly with a powerful 4th round TKO. The action-packed fight will be shown on HBO at 9:45pm ET tonight.
Kovalev said “This is my dream! I will add this belt to my collection,” he joked, with a big smile on his face, “There are many people in Russia and around the world who supported me. This is for them.”
Jubilant Kathy Duva, Main Events CEO, Kovalev’s promoter said, “Sergey did everything we expected him to do tonight and more.” She added, ” There is a reason we call him ‘Krusher,’ and he showed why tonight. He is the Russian Wrecking Ball and I will call on HBO Monday to start planning his next fight!”
