Unlike many boxers who are constantly pushing speeches of greatness and heritage, former unified light heavyweight champion Sergei Kovalev does not hide the fact that he came to boxing primarily for the sake of good money. According to the 37-year-old Russian veteran, fights that will bring in as much money as possible are now a priority for him.
“I would choose champions who have a belt, because these are the most expensive fights. I have no desire to give someone a face, to prove something to someone, to take revenge. I am in this sport purely because of the financial component.
This is my job, which I started at the age of 11 and have been in this sport for 26 years. This is already my way of life. Those fights where you can earn money are important to me. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a title fight or not, “Sergei Kovalev said in an interview with the PRO-boxing with Vadim Grinikh YouTube channel.
We will remind, Kovalev also commented on the situation with the failed doping test.
