Sergey Kovalev has only recently caught the boxing world’s attention as he “Krushes” opposition in his way. Saturday night would only be slightly different as Kovalev knocked out Cedric Agnew in 7 rounds. The KO gave Sergey Kovalev his eighth straight knockout victory.
Cedric Agnew did not want to go out as easy as other Kovalev opponents. Agnew made the fight sloppy when possible slightly frustrating Kovalev. In round 4 an accidental headbutt would have Kovalev cut over his left eye. Blood seemed to have angered the “Krusher” as Kovalev would lunge too much on his power punches and touch the canvas. Sergey Kovalev was never knocked down in the contest.
On the other hand Cedric Agnew would be downed in the second round, sixth round, and KO’ed in the seventh round.
Sergey Kovalev has not went this many rounds since December 5, 2011.
Sergey Kovalev knows a fight with Adonis Stevenson is pretty much out the door. Kovalev said he is willing to face anyone in the light heavyweight division. Sergey Kovalev however still took a verbal shot at Adonis Stevenson calling him “a piece of shit.”
With Adonis Stevenson most likely out of the picture let us not forget that Jean Pascal is back on the scene. Let us not also forget that Pascal will have no problem fighting on HBO.
