Kovalev, Hopkins speak after unification collision

Photos: Emily Harney

Newly unified WBA/IBF/WBO light heavyweight world champion Sergey Kovalev and 49-year-old boxing legend Bernard Hopkins spoke to the press after Kovalev’s decisive victory in their unification fight on Saturday night in Atlantic City.

Sergey Kovalev: “First I want to say the most important thing to me: I’ve reached one of my dreams in professional boxing…Bernard Hopkins is unbelievable despite his age, we went twelve rounds and I have huge respect for him…it wasn’t easier fight than I thought, it was hard, but thankfully I was prepared to go twelve rounds.”

Bernard Hopkins: “Am I going to fight again? That’s like asking a woman after an hour of labor to have another kid…I was trying to turn things around, until the end. Even in the last round until the bell rang…I couldn’t overpower him. I felt like a middleweight in there against a cruiserweight. I simply couldn’t engage…tonight Kovalev was the better man.”

Boxing notables pay respects to Kovalev and Hopkins

By James Slater

After the great effort light-heavyweight warriors Sergey Kovalev and Bernard Hopkins displayed last night in Atlantic city, a number of fellow big names from the sport have paid tribute – to the amazingly tough and resilient 49-year-old living legend Hopkins mostly – via Twitter. Hopkins failed to shock the world one more time, and “The Alien” took quite a hammering, in that 12th and final round especially, but people such as legend Tommy Hearns and former Kovalev foe Nathan Cleverly were sufficiently moved by B-Hop’s courage. Here is what some of boxing’s names had to say:

Andre Berto: “Bhop the roughest old man I ever saw. Bhop is a legend much more respect will go down as one of the best to do it.”

Lou DiBella: “@THEREALBHOP lost every minute of fight. Forced into survival mode early. Went out like a man, with no stunts or BS. Respect to a HOFer.”

Deontay Wilder: “Say what you want but @THEREALBHOP is tough. Respect for going all 12.”

Demetrius Andrade: “Bhop is the man lol..True dog.”

Cornelius Bundrage: “Bernard, I got the torch don’t worry about it 40+” (more…)

Unbeaten WBO light heavyweight world champion Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (26-0-1, 23 KOs) scored a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over 49-year-old IBF and WBA light heavyweight world champion Bernard “The Alien” Hopkins (55-7-2, 32 KOs) to unify the titles before a crowd of 8,544 on Saturday at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Kovalev took control early, dropping Hopkins with a right hand in round one, but Hopkins recovered quickly. Kovalev’s power made Hopkins cautious in round two. After that, Kovalev was content to box with Hopkins, throwing more punches and landing hard shots when possible. Hopkins almost went down from a hard right hand in round eight. Hopkins rocked Kovalev in the twelfth round, but Kovalev roared back and pummeled Hopkins for the last 60 seconds, nearly getting the stoppage.

Scores were 120-107, 120-107, 120-106. Hopkins didn’t win a round. photos

The larger Stieglitz was the aggressor, trying to impose his size advantage over the former 160lb champion, but was Sturm landing the cleaner shots early. Stieglitz upped the pressure in round four. Good two-way action in most rounds. Stieglitz came on strong in round eleven and both left it all in the ring in round twelve. Scores were 115-113 Stieglitz, 115-113 Sturm, and 114-114.

Both fighters talked about a rematch after the fight. WBO super middleweight Arthur Abraham, expected to fight the winner, stated he thought Sturm won the fight. Also at ringside was WBA middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin, who agreed with the draw.

Short night for Montreal fighters/ring card girls

By Dave Spencer at ringside

On a night where the ring card girls were ordered out of the building, middleweight Francis Lafreniere (7-5-2 4KO) made sure they weren’t needed, ending things early and scoring a TKO victory at 2:16 of the 2nd round of a scheduled eight over Marcin Cybulski (8-4-2 7KO) at the scenic Chateau Vaudreuil, situated just west of Montreal. The 26-year-old scored his 4th successive victory as the well-heeled trio of tabulators were being escorted from ringside by commission officials for apparently being well-lubricated. Inside the ring, a right hand put the visiting Pole down to the canvas and Lafreniere didn’t let up forcing referee Albert Padulo to call a halt to the match. (more…)
