Sergey Kovalev defends his unified light-heavyweight titles against former title holder Jean Pascal in Montreal as the Russian aims to build on his impressive victory over Bernard Hopkins.
The undefeated 31 year-old enjoyed a highly impressive 2014 along with a healthy boost up the pound for pound rankings and Kovalev knows another win could land him a dream clash with Adonis Stevenson.
Pascal, 32, is seen as a dangerous opponent for ‘Krusher’ after defeating Lucian Bute convincingly in January 2014 at the Bell Centre. However, the Canadian will also want to erase the memory of his farcical bout with Roberto Bolonti at the same venue in December.
Kovalev vs. Pascal happens Saturday, March 14 live on HBO beginning at 9:45pm ET/PT.
