IT’S no secret about my split with Sergey Kovalev.

Everyone is aware of the news now and there’s been some stuff wrote about why we parted, but the truth is that I just don’t think that he’s a nice person. He’s a very cold man and I was willing to help him out as a favour to Don Turner but eventually it went the same way for me as it did with Turner and it did with Abel Sanchez. The time has got to come when Sergey looks at himself and perhaps admit that he’s the problem.
