Former world light heavyweight champion Sergei Kovalev pointed to the main advantages of his colleagues in the division and potential rivals – WBA champion Dmitry Bivol and WBC / IBF title holder Artur Beterbiev.
“In terms of complexity, it would probably be difficult with both, because, firstly, Dima is younger. Arthur is also slightly younger, a couple of years, but he is just physically strong. Beterbiev is strong by nature. Highlanders are guys with prohibitive testosterone levels. Arthur is really physically strong, which he demonstrated in the fight against Sanya Gvozdik. It seems to me that he is not even tired. He is a striker, in professional gloves it causes serious damage.
Dimon is a tactician, a neat boxer. He misses little, he has a well-developed instinct for self-preservation. These are their strengths, “said Sergei Kovalev in an interview with the” PRO-box with Vadim Grinikh “YouTube channel.
We will remind, Kovalev also called Andre Ward an overrated boxer.
