“Storm” Alvarez vs. “Krusher” Kovalev
Tomorrow, Kovalev will have one more go at it to attempt to take back his world title, and Eleider has a grand opportunity to officially close the door on the old-guard for good.
Kovalev throughout his career carried himself as the big bully on the block with a heavy punch in both hands, ultimately winning the bouts before they even start, but Alvarez in no way shape or form is scared of him, and won’t shy away from standing his ground.
Kovalev will have to muster some form of moxy to reverse course here, showing real grit in character, and fix his mechanics to have a chance at reversing course, and becoming a world titlist once again.
Tune into ESPN+ tomorrow to catch this highly anticipated re-match.
