Boxings 1-2 KO Punches

sergey-kovalev-vs-jean-pascal-01-photo-by-herby-whyneSimilar to the first meeting Sergey Kovalev dominated Jean Pascal but this time the fight ended in the 7th round. Kovalev looked impressive landing 40 percent of his punches. All three judges had Kovalev up 68-64 on the scorecard.

“No, I don’t like rematches, but this was a personal fight because Pascal was a special person,” Kovalev said sarcastically after the fight. “I mean, he’s not polite with anybody around him and don’t respect fighters. Anybody he don’t respect, believe me. When I’m in Montreal, everyone said to me, ‘Kick his ass.'” Kovalev did just that working his jab and connecting at will to the body of Pascal. “I would fight more rounds and make him more pain and punish him more,” Kovalev said with a laugh. “Oh, wait, they stopped the fight before the eighth round. I don’t respect him at all.”KovalevWins

“Kovalev, you did a better job tonight,” Pascal said to the crowd. “He’s a great champion. I will be back. Don’t worry, guys. I love you and thank you very much.” If Andre Ward(28-0,15kos) wins his fight March 26th against Sullivan Barrera he is expected to have a showdown fight with Sergery Kovalev(29-0,26 ko).

Fans want it, and the fight should be made,” Ward said. “They are working out the details.”

AlvarezVSamirThe middleweight champion of the world Canelo Alvarez and welterweight contender Amir Khan finalized a deal Tuesday to meet for Alvarez’s world title. The fight came out of no where and no one expected this fight to be made. This fight will headline an HBO PPV and Alvarez preferred a contract at the weight 155.  This is 5 pounds lower then the middleweight weight class and eight pounds heavier then welterweight.

saul-alvarez“As the middleweight champion of the world, I will take on the best fighters in the sport, and on Cinco de Mayo weekend, I look forward to making the first defense of my titles,” Alvarez said. “Amir was a decorated amateur, a two-time World Champion and is in the prime of his career. Fans are in for a great fight on May 7.” The venue for the sight has not been announced yet. Alverez won the middleweight world title by unanimous decision on november 21st.  Alverez needed a big name opponent like Khan before his showdown with unification middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin.  Khan is fast and has an awkward but affective offensive game. Most importantly he is a big name and a big draw in Britian and the United States.

Amir-Khan“I know Canelo fights the best and wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to face me like others have,” Khan said. “My goal is to always fight the biggest names and the best fighters. That is why I’m excited for this fight. Also, I would like to thank my team and Golden Boy Promotions for this opportunity. I know I have the speed and ability to beat him and will give my fans what they deserve on May 7.” “We are committed to putting on the biggest and best fights in boxing,” De La Hoya said. “Canelo is the biggest star in the sport and as he demonstrated against James Kirkland and Miguel Cotto last year, he is only getting better. Those who predicted that he would take an easy fight for his first defense have been proven wrong once again. “As for Amir, he has won his last five fights including an incredible performance against Devon Alexander, and now that he is back where he belongs at Golden Boy Promotions, his future is very bright, once again.”  Canelo has won four fights in a row since his loss to Floyd Mayweather in 2013 and Amir Khan has won five straight fights. Canelo Alverez (46-1-1,32ko) vs Amir Khan(31-3,19ko) should be a great fight and a fight that should do well on pay-per-view.
