Boxing News at Five: Kovalev set to carry on, Pulev is in line to fight Ruiz vs. Joshua 2 winner

Promoter Kathy Duva expects Sergey Kovalev to fight again following Canelo Alvarez loss, and Kubrat Pulev will fight for the IBF heavyweight title next
fighter of the year

SERGEY KOVALEV has had a hard time of it of late.

The fights he has won have been difficult and gruelling, while the defeats, three of them in the last three-and-a-half years, have been crushing, hard to take and seemingly ushering him towards retirement.

Now 36, the Russian is without a title, having recently been stopped in 11 rounds by Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez, and would be forgiven for walking off into the sunset with his career-high payday. But that, according to his promoter, Kathy Duva, isn’t the plan – not yet anyway.
