Sergey Kovalev Arrested for DUI In Los Angeles

Boxing star Sergey Kovalev was arrested for DUI in Los Angeles early Monday morning, TMZ Sports has learned.

Boxing star Sergey Kovalev was arrested for DUI in Los Angeles early Monday morning, TMZ Sports has learned.

The 36-year-old former light heavyweight champ — who recently fought (and lost to) Canelo Alvarez — was pulled over by the California Highway Patrol around 2 AM.

During the stop, the trooper believed Kovalev was under the influence and arrested him for DUI. He was taken to a nearby station where he was booked.

Records show Kovalev was released on his own recognizance around 7:35 AM.

It’s not Kovalev’s first brush with the law … in fact, the Russian star is currently in the middle of a felony assault case stemming from an incident where he allegedly brutalized a woman in 2018.

As we previously reported, Kovalev is accused of attacking Jamie Frontz — who says the boxing star got violent after she rejected his sexual advances after the opening of a boxing gym in Big Bear, CA.

If convicted on the assault charge, Kovalev faces up to 4 years in prison — though he has pled not guilty and is fighting the case.

Kovalev is 34-1-1 as a pro — winning several light heavyweight belts during his outstanding career.

He most recently fought Canelo — who ferociously knocked him out in the 11th-round of their Nov. 2019 matchup.
