Kovalev v Chilemba
Russian superstar Sergey Kovalev defeated his opponent from Malawi Issac Chilemba by a comfortable unanimous decision. The fight was more competitive than some expected with Kovalev looking tired in the later round. He revealed after the fight he had suffered from a cold in training camp. Kovlev floored his opponent in the seventh round and was given the decision by a big margin. The move towards a super fight with Andre Ward looks on the cards going forward, as Chilemba was chosen as there are similarities in style.
