  1. Nice win by Chilemba. He took everything away from the Russian including, apparently, his marbles.

    Did Kovalev look more or less impressive to you than he did against Bernard? I really like his fighting style and resilience. What, if anything, did Pascal’s rally say about how the Krusher would fare against Stevenson?

    • Chilemba is an awkward customer, firmly a member of the “who need him” club.

      He looked equally impressive in my opinion. Pascal’s stock also rose in defeat. I think Kovalev exposes Stevenson’s lack of variety and weak chin, but Adonis will find hope in the holes Pascal poked in Kovalev’s defence. Stevenson has the power to knock anybody out & if he can land as clean as Pascal did, then he has a shot.

      Will Al Haymon allow the fight to happen though? That’s the real question. Stevenson-Bika in a few weeks is a terrible fight
