Former rival of ex-world light heavyweight champion Sergei Kovalev Ismail Sillakh admitted that he had a bad impression of “Crasher”, based on his posts on social networks, but after personal communication, he realized that in life a Russian is a different person.
“It seemed to me that Kovalev was completely ordinary. My opinion of him as a person on the Internet was that he was a bull. He swears, always sends everyone, calls him g *** ons. And when I talked to him, he turned out to be ordinary, enough all speaks calmly.
Sergei said that he helps many, almost makes donations. Helps the boys, brings them to the States. He showed a lot of humanity. Therefore, I was surprised that I had one opinion about him, and when we talked, it was completely different, “Ismail Sillah said in an interview with the BOXING STUDIO YouTube channel.
Let us remind you that Sillakh also shared his memories of mutual trash with Kovalev before the fight.
