The top five next opponents for Sergey Kovalev

Olly Campbell counts down the best options for Sergey Kovalev

5. Julio Cesar Chavez Jnr, 49-2-1 (32)

Perhaps an odd choice to many, thanks largely to his questionable desire, as well as the fact he’s not really sure where he belongs weight-wise, the name recognition the Mexican legend’s son brings alone would still put bums on seats with regards to any Kovalev fight, particularly from those especially keen to find out how quickly the “Krusher” could finish him. More of a curiosity fight than a serious challenge to Kovalev’s reign, Chavez is currently preparing for a return to action after sustaining an injury in last summer’s 170lbs catch-weight tune up against Marcos Reyes, and claims to want to get back into the world title picture after previously holding WBC honours at middleweight.
