anyone got early thoughts on kovalev vs bektemir? don't know much about this bekt guy other than seeing lots of hype on twitter. surprised he's been lined a -300 favorite. just based on sergey's name recognition i thought it'd be closer.
Me too, He's been a finalist quite a few times in the world championships and olympics. He's got power, speed and youth and is a southpaw but honestly look a bit limited to me otherwise, and his opposition obviously cans. Kovalev might be able to piece him up with the jab and straights.. It's in moscow so might be some fuckery also..
It's just all about how much Kovalev has left, that chin is not what it once was and he's 37. Might just be in it for the paycheck at this point.
Wow. Boxing. Wtf. Way back in the day it was big time. Heavyweight champ was most famous guy in the world. Stupid fcks have been ruining the sport for a long long time. I will still watch and bet on it. But it's really quite sad. The most talented boxers don't even fight each other for long time now
