All everything light heavyweight champion Sergey Krusher Kovalev, 27-0-1, 24 KO, takes on IBF mandatory challenger Nadjib Iron Jib Mohammedi, 37- 3, 23 KO, Saturday, July 25 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
No need to be smug, but let’s face it, we already know how this goes. Fairplay, maybe Iron Jib can wing in some good shots as he seems to have a smidgen of power and a bit more experience. It’s Kovalev’s opportunity to stay busy with a highlight result as his promoter Main Events maneuvers for a bigger fights after fighting two consecutive stinker styles in Bernard Hopkins and Jean Pascal.
We’ll just have to see for ourselves how it goes for them.
