Well, what happens when a Great little man fights a really good Big man? So many questions! So many answers! All will be revealed when Canelo Alvarez 51-1-2 (34 KO’s) faces current WBO Light Heavyweight champion Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev for Kovalev’s WBO title Saturday, November 2, 2019, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Canelo is the reigning king of the Middleweight division and probably of even greater significance, Canelo is the current face of Boxing.
With no fear and supreme confidence, Canelo has faced and conquered all of the biggest names in the Jr. Middleweight and the middleweight division, Canelo is the toughest S.O.B. in the room and willing to get inside the ring with anyone to prove it. Which is why he is jumping two weight classes to face the most feared puncher in boxing over the last four years. “The second phase of my career is continuing just as we had planned, and that’s why we are continuing to make great fights to enter into the history books of boxing,” said Canelo Alvarez. “That’s also why I’ve decided to jump two weight classes against one of the most feared champions of recent years. Kovalev is a dangerous puncher, and he’s naturally the bigger man, but that’s the kind of challenges and risks that I like to face.”
Kovalev is the much bigger man in this history making fight. Kovalev is six feet tall and a more natural Light Heavyweight than his five foot eight inch opponent. Even more importantly, Kovalev is a much bigger puncher and while understated, he is a better defensive fighter than what many provide him credit. The only negatives with Kovalev are his age (36 years young) and how well he can handle body shots. Well, he answered both when he stopped one of the young and talented bulls in the Light Heavyweight division. Kovalev laid waste to previously unbeaten Anthony Yarde. Prior to that, Kovalev avenged a seventh round KO loss by out boxing Eleider Alvarez in an Unanimous Decision win in a highly anticipated rematch.
Kovalev, like Canelo, has faced every big name in his division. “In order to be the best you have to beat the best. I have always tried to fight the toughest opponents in my division, but many have ducked me throughout my career. Canelo wanted to fight me; to step up to higher weight and challenge for my belt. I will be ready on November 2nd. Thank you, Main Events, Kathy Duva, Egis Klimas, DAZN and Canelo for making this fight happen,” said Alvarez.
On November 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and streamed live exclusively on DAZN, the world will see and get a full summary of what happens when a Great little man fights a really good Big man in the boxing ring.
