The titled Russian light heavyweight Sergei Kovalev denies that he deliberately took illegal drugs before the fight against Bektemir Melikuziev, which fell through due to a positive doping test of the Russian boxer.
“I myself wonder what will happen next. It is obvious to the competent authorities that this is not my fault. Now I am under certain control. I think it will last literally two or three months. I believe that I can enter the ring in the summer if there will be no pitfalls that we do not see today.
I don’t know who I’m going to fight with yet. Perhaps with Melikuziev. I don’t even think about it. But I don’t think about it now. The main thing is to resume negotiations on the organization of the next battle. It makes no difference to me who to box with, “said Sergei Kovalev in an interview with the YouTube channel” PRO-boxing with Vadim Grinikh “.
We will remind, earlier the manager of Kovalev said that the boxer is now undergoing a three-month probationary period.
