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.
