The Fight Journal was present for a conference call to answer questions about the WBO Light Heavyweight Championship fight between Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (23-0-1, 21 KOs) and challenger Cedric “L.O.W.” Agnew (26-0-0, 13 KOs), set for March 29th at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.
Here’s what the fighters and their teams had to say:
I have a big wish to win next fight. My main goal is to get one more title this year.
Last year in my division the best boxer was Stevenson. Which means I need to beat him. Maybe after this I will be in third place in my division. I am ready for any fight in my division. I want to fight Stevenson.
I think he is a decent fighter but I don’t see anything spectacular coming from him. In my personal opinion I just think he is ordinary. will go out there and do what I have been doing for years. I am ready to take care of business.
John David Jackson
Sergey is an all-around good fighter. He takes his punches a lot better. He has boxing skills but no one gets to see them because most fighters don’t make it four rounds against him. He has the talent to do a lot of things. He is not one-dimensional; he has a lot of tools to work with. If the fight lasts longer he will get to showcase his talents. Once that bell rings he does what he does best; he delivers. Sergey lives to be a champion.
Main Events’ President and CEO Kathy Duva
We are beyond excited to make this fight official. This is exactly the kind of fight we should be putting on. Sergey is must-see television. This is a young fighter testing his skills against a champion. Don’t be late; you never know what is going to happen.
