Former world champion light heavyweight Sergey Kovalev plans to change weight class. This was told by his trainer buddy McGirt in an interview with Bad Left Hook.
In particular, the plans of the Russians to try their hand at heavy weight.
“Sergei will resume training within a month. We are not going to allow him to score more than 84 kg. With a weight of 81 to 84 kg Kovalev will be easy and will be able to defeat cruisers,” said the coach.
Kovalev in November 2019 lost by knockout in the 11th round of the Mexican Saulo Alvarez and parted with the world title by the world Boxing organization (WBO). In the asset 36-year-old Russian 34 wins (29 by knockout), four losses, one draw.
