KATHY DUVA, the promoter of Sergey Kovalev who goes into a rematch with Andre Ward on Saturday, has criticised the announcement of Floyd Mayweather’s clash with UFC star Conor McGregor for drawing attention away from the Ward-Kovalev fight week.

“It’s all Mayweather and the circus and it’s a shame,” Duva said.

Mayweather-McGregor will be broadcast on Showtime. It was announced a few days before Ward-Kovalev on HBO, it will take place on August 26, the same day HBO screen Miguel Cotto-Yoshihiro Kamegai and a few weeks ahead of Gennady Golovkin-Canelo Alvarez on September 16, which will also be on HBO.
