Kovalev will fight with Beterbiev’s victim? The promoter comments on the fake


Promotion company Main Events decided, just in case, to dispel the rumors that their star fighter-veteran cruiser Sergey Kovalev (35-4-1, 29 KOs) will fight this Thursday in Australia with former US light heavyweight contender Marcus Brown (24-2, 16 KOs).

In fact, this is not even a fake, but a joke on social networks. Some
Nadeem Haddad joked first of all World Boxing Association (WBA)by tagging an insider
Michael Benson. Apparently, it is for this reason that Main Events responded to the message.

“Sergey Kovalev will take on Marcus Brown in his comeback bout this Thursday in Sydney, Australia as part of the WBA’s Knockout Domestic Violence Together festival. Source: Michael Benson,” Haddad wrote.

Main Events
reacted: “There is not an ounce of truth in this message,” which amused Haddad and his subscribers.

The WBA proposes to “knock out together” not domestic violence, but drugs – this week the 38th festival from the organization will be held in Argentina (XXXVIII KO Drugs), during which two boxing evenings will take place, and President Gilberto Mendoza will make his report (he will not talk about drugs, but about problems in boxing).

Former light heavyweight leader Kovalev resumed his career in 2022 and made a confident debut in cruisers – he beat Olympic medalist Tervel Pulev. Brown in the same year tried to throw off the throne of the current hegemon of the division Artur Beterbiev from Russia, but capitulated in the 9th round.

Later it became known that Kovalev was not paid for the fight with Pulev. And the veteran himself was taken aback by his plans: “One more intermediate fight, and then I’m ready to fight for the title.”
