FORMER world champion Badou Jack is waiting for another significant fight at light-heavyweight. After a draw with Adonis Stevenson, Jack wants a rematch or failing that a shot at new champion Eleider Alvarez who sensationally defeated WBO boss Sergey Kovalev.

“That’s a possibility [fighting Eleider Alvarez]. I think he’s going to have to do a rematch with Kovalev, if not I would love that fight,” Badou told Boxing News. “I know him, we sparred, he’s a good boxer, a pretty good boxer.”

“Floyd [Mayweather, his promoter] is working on a big fight. So we’ll see what’s next, if it’s the Stevenson rematch, if it’s one of the other champions. Floyd always makes it happen. Anyone, it doesn’t matter to me as long as they get me a big fight,” Jack continued.
