Aye man, I know the fight's only two days away and I swear....it literally flew under the radar! Since his KO loss to Alvarez last August, Kovalev's done what Kovalev always does....makes excuses. The judges had Kovalev ahead at the time of the stoppage. Absurd!
This time, he's saying that Alvarez landed a "lucky punch". Fuck this guy, seriously! First, it was the judges in the first Ward fight, then it was "low blows" from Ward in the rematch, and now Alvarez scored a lucky punch!? C'mon, dude.
Kovalev's also changed trainers (now trains with McGirt) and the little birdies are already talking, saying he's still drinking and not taking training seriously under McGirt. He also got caught up in an assault charge involving a female. What's going on with this guy?
Anyway, how do you see the rematch going?
PS: It's going to be on ESPN+ this time....I hate that app! ESPN's going to air the Valdez fight as well as the Commey fight on ESPN, then switch over the ESPN+ app at midnight (EST) and air the Lopez/Magdaleno fight followed by the Kovalev/Alvarez rematch.
